Panel Discussion including Philip Galanter and Pinar Yoldas, moderated by Mary Tsiongas at 516ARTS: October 27, 2012 

Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Weird Science, a group exhibition presented in participation with ISEA2012 Albuquerque: Machine Wilderness, the Eighteenth International Symposium on Electronic Art. Spanning the globe, Weird Science brings together innovative projects by 9 artists: Anne Farrell, Philip Galanter, Haein Kang, Hugh Livingston, Josh Lopez-Binder, Aaron Rothman, Kamila Wozniakowska, Pinar Yoldas, and Marina Zurkow. 

Amidst the complexities that exist at the intersection of science, technology, and art, much of Weird Science intuitively connects to the natural world.  Anne Farrell’s traditional en plein air process is filtered by technology as she substitutes the touch of her finger and tablet for traditional brush and paint. In a world where information is continuously being compressed, Hugh Livingston’s video installations explore the reduction of perception. Video vignettes depicting the Russian River are juxtaposed with corresponding pantone color cards that sample the predominant 5 colors within each video. Josh Lopez-Binder’s elegant paper sculptures explore statistical intelligence, algorithmic beauty and the underlying connectedness between machines, math, and nature. Mirroring biological adaptation, Marina Zurkow’s animated landscape Mesocosm is designed to change over time in response to software driven data inputs. Pinar Yoldas creates synthetic species that are designed specifically for the postmodern world. Titled Speculative Biologies, Yoldas creates alternative lifeforms that explore notions of mortality, fertility and how technology redefines nature.  Aaron Rothman’s densely layered images of Arizona native plant life investigate a new kind of organic order - one that is defined by human alteration.

Philip Galanter’s RGBCA #2 is activated by cellular automata and colored light cubes. Each cube reacts to neighboring activity -sometimes the patterns will dissolve into chaos, and at others will converge on a static state or simple repetition. Continuing with the theme of reactive movement, Hain Kang’s Null Point, is an open maze designed to elicit various physical experiences as visitors pass through the labyrinth of metal springs. Finally, Kamila Wozniakowska’s multimedia instllation draws from the early 20th century novel Cosmos by Witold Gombrowicz which investigates the formation of reality itself.
