IEA Visiting Artist: Blake Marques Carrington

May 22-26, 2017

The Institute for Electronic Arts at the School of Art and Design of the New York State College of Ceramics

Sponsored by: The Institute for Electronic Arts and the Division of Expanded Media

    Blake Marques Carrington will be joining the IEA for an artist residency over the week of May 22nd. Based in Brooklyn, NY, Blake holds an MFA from Syracuse University and works across a wide range of media including digital printmaking, audiovisual compositions, live visuals to accompany performances, and video installation user self produced custom software – all falling a heading he calls “Speculative Forensics”. Focusing on the question “can information be lost?” Blake often translates his creations from one medium to another, asking the question of how accurately it could possibly return its original form.

Blake is looking forward to exploring the IEA’s sound studio facilities to focus on a couple of full-length albums that are currently in progress. He plans to experiment with the IEA’s equipment, including our modular synthesizers, through openness and play while exploring new means of making. Local and student musicians are invited to jam sessions and collaborate on albums and tracks in progress.

The Institute for Electronic Art’s Visiting Artist Program is sponsored in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

IEA Visiting Artist: Renate Ferro

May 15-19, 2017

The Institute for Electronic Arts at the School of Art and Design of the New York State College of Ceramics

Sponsored by: The Institute for Electronic Arts and the Division of Expanded Media

  The IEA will be hosting Renate Ferro of Ithaca, NY, for an artist residency over the week of May 15th. Renate, who holds multiple masters degrees in art practices, frames herself as a conceptual artist who toggles between the creative skins of old and new technologies. These are actualized through forms such as installation, interactive net-based projects, digital time-based media, drawing, and text. Often engaging with the concepts of memory and disclosure, Renate’s practice conjoins the making of art out of life’s materials and life’s materials out of art, blending the tactile material world with the networked, immaterial world.

For her residency, Renate intends to explore and print from her archive of video work from her Super 8 film and early low-resolution digital video projections. Renate has experimented with image making from these sources on older technology via printing on various substrates with dot matrix printers. With this archive of material Renate would like to experiment with the IEA’s contemporary printing technologies, which are several generations newer than any Renate previously used.

IEA Artist in Residence: Donald Ha?I Phu? Daedalus

June 5-9, 2017

The Institute for Electronic Arts at the School of Art and Design of the New York State College of Ceramics

Sponsored by: The Institute for Electronic Arts and the Division of Expanded Media

Donald Daedalus of Bronx County, NY, will be visiting the IEA for an artist residency over the week of June 5th. Donald, who received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, arrives at new ideas through the use and invention of tools. Workflows, physical instruments, methodologies, even projects themselves work into the advancement of his projects. This philosophy even carries over into his video work. These tools seek to address a main theme in his work – suspicion, questioning external experiences and information and testing beliefs to see if they hold up to scrutiny.

Donald’s proposal is connected to an ongoing project titled The Illinois River Project where he is designing a system to use the bonemeal of invasive carp in Illinois to remediate soil of lead pollution in industrial neighborhoods, which can cause delinquent behavior and learning disabilities. Artistic creations occur throughout the entire process as communities participate and learn about the health hazards present and what can be done. All of this has been meticulously documented and, at the IEA, Donald intends to created books and digital prints from this project, educational material, and further edit video footage into completed works.
