Location One's Heather Wagner in conversation with artist-inventor Jason Van Anden.
Van Anden
seeks to reconcile human emotion, intelligence and free will through art. These endeavors are expressed in mediums both old and new from clay to software.

He is the founder of the Smile Project http://smileproject.com

Jason Van Anden's creative output is generated from an energetic mix of passionate art making and a compulsion to tinker. Among his most recent works are a pair of emotive robots named Neil and Iona, an online videogame called Farklempt! and a very cute virtual Brussels Griffon puppy named ascii chewy. His creations are exhibited internationally and has recieved recognition and support by the art, science, gaming and technology communities. Van Anden holds a BFA in Sculpture from Syracuse University and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.


This event is FREE and is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs

LOCATION ONE is a not-for-profit organization devoted to convergence between visual, performing and digital arts in a time of rapidly changing technology  . We invite artists from different disciplines and from different countries to work in our studios. We ask them to experiment with the new technologies of artistic creation, interaction and delivery. We urge them to collaborate in creating new works and give them virtual Internet spaces and physical gallery space to exhibit the results. Our goals are to foster the creation of new work, new forms of expression, and new capabilities in artists, and to advance new awareness in all those we reach.
