Tyler Green'sArt Madness II polls are underway. Round Two is nearly ready for a vote (check it out tomorrow to add your two cents and vote for the Post War Master!)
CNN covered the emergence of QR codes. Read the article here. Could this be the future of art fair wall labels??
And in keeping with this tech-theme, Nintendo has launched it's 3D handheld gaming device, the 3DS. It's a glasses-free 3-D experience. If this sort of technology catches on, will this be on every cell phone and iPad in the next few years?? It's not hard to imagine a VIP 3D Art Fair, is it? Certainly would be helpful for showing sculpture.
Old-school technology goes eco-friendly (prrrrretty cool...how many cardboard cameras have you seen?)
A steady stream of visitors poured in to see Stas Orlovski'sHouse and Garden open last night at Mixed Greens. We also celebrated the debut of Mikhail Iliatov's window installation, Rembrandt Flyby (Parts 1 & 2). SHOUT OUT to Fatta Cuckoo for the delectable post-opening eats!
Our intern Jessie, above, helps put the finishing touches on Mikhail Iliatov's Rembrandt Flyby (Parts 1 & 2). Tiny sensors are hidden throughout the gallery and will be tabulating how long gallery visitors stand in front of the artwork on view.
Rob is working to hide the last of the wires from the tech savvy project. The final tabulations will be visible on digital counters in the windows of Mixed Greens (viewable from 26th Street).
More on Mikhail's project, from the press release:
Rembrandt Flyby (parts 1 & 2), uses sensors and hardware, stealthily installed throughout Stas Orlovski’s solo exhibition
(part 1) and Sonya Blesofsky’s solo exhibition (part 2), to tabulate how many people stand in front of each piece and for how long. The number of people and the average viewing duration for each artwork displays in the Mixed Greens’ windows as a series of flickering numbers. While the numbers may appear to reference something tangible, they are truly attempting to quantify the intangible: appreciation, contemplation, and meditation occurring in front of a work of art. Is anyone willing to spend thirty minutes standing in front of speakers, or a work or art, or the gallery windows? Iliatov is attempting to find out.
The gallery is abuzz with Mikhail Iliatov's installation process. It's an electronic mine field! The installation of Iliatov's interactive window installation Rembrandt Fly-By (Parts 1 & 2) is currently underway and will be ready for tomorrow night's opening. Check it out tomorrow night, 6-8pm at Mixed Greens.
