JOE MILUTIS

Virtual Literature 57

In 1957, Marguerite Duras gave a definition for virtual literature that seems to me the best.  At the time, "virtual literature" could not have had anything to do with data gloves, caves, and hyperlinks, yet her description was unwittingly prescient and futuristic.  I'll talk about the history of this particular kind of virtual literature, from the data of the damned (Charles Fort) to the dynamically damned world of spam and its discontents.  Included will be stop-overs in the netherzone between metafiction and metadata.

Joe Milutis is a writer, media artist, and Visiting Assistant Professor of Modern Culture and Media and Visual Art at Brown University.  He is the author of Ether: The Nothing that Connects Everything (2006).

CLIFF EVANS
The Road to Mount Weather
curated by Pieranna Cavalchini (Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum)

A three-channel moving image installation (15 minute loop). In the catalogue that accompanies the show the curator writes:  *It is a panoramic triptych that maps the condition of the American adolescent psyche through myriad scavenged images and a carefully calibrated soundtrack. The artist has roamed the Internet examining anxieties, phobias and obsessions, searching out subjects that often preoccupy internet surfers: conspiracy theories and surveillance.

[...] an open animation, susceptible to hugely varied critical perspectives and interpretations. It shakes us out of our complacency. In a mock epic journey through capitalist Hell, Evans creates a baffling cascade of imagery coded in complex syntax. [...] With each repeated viewing, the viewer becomes more intrigued, less complacent, finding new associations and symbols, and questioning the final meaning of the narrative.*

LOCATION ONE 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.
