An animation created by UMass Dartmouth Design Professor Harvey Goldman has been selected for inclusion in the first ever Visual Music Marathon as part of this year's Boston Cyberarts Festival.
The 2007 Boston Cyberarts Festival will take place from April 20 to May 6 at museums, galleries, theatres, universities, and public spaces in and around the Boston area. The festival is the first and largest collaboration of artists working in new technologies in all media in North America, encompassing visual arts, dance, music, electronic literature, web art, and public art. Please see http://www.bostoncyberarts.org/
The work, entitled "Undulation", will appear as part of the 12-hour screening of time-based art works sponsored by Northeastern University and held Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., in Northeastern's Raytheon Amphitheater, located in the Egan Research Center on Forsyth Street.
"Undulation" represents a collaboration between Professor Goldman and James Bohn, a past UMass Dartmouth Professor of Music . The animation illuminates a study and investigation of the visual and sonic elements of cadence, meter, oscillation, palpitation, pressure, and pulsation. The piece represents an attempt to amalgamate, provoke and energize abstract imagery with abstract sound.
Northeastern received more than 300 artist submissions for the marathon, representing works from 34 different countries. Of these, 64, representing 6 hours of programming, were selected for screening. The remaining six hours will be devoted to invited artists, historic works on 16mm film, works provided by two guest curators, and approximately one hour of live video performance art. The Marathon will showcase historic and new works, as well as live video performance art.
