    The Division of Drawing, Painting and Photography is pleased to present visiting artist Jeff Whetstone.

    Jeff Whetstone’s photographs and films imagine rural America through lenses of anthropology and mythology. Whetstone’s Post-Pleistocene photographs illuminate the depths of wild caves in Alabama and Tennessee, where layers of human markings reveal millennia of cultural evolution. His ongoing New Wilderness project portrays a human-centric American wilderness and questions how our cultural connection to the mythology of the wild is revealed in contemporary times. Whetstone’s work interrogates the stereotypes of rural people--ignorance, poverty, and self-destruction--and explores the complicated bond between people and the landscape.

    Whetstone’s work has been exhibited widely in group and solo exhibitions, including the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Karyn Lovegrove in Los Angeles and Higher Pictures and Wallspace in New York. In 2007 he received a Guggenheim Fellowship his work New Wilderness and his work has been reviewed in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, and Art News, among others. Whetstone is represented by Julie Saul in New York and is currently a Professor of Visual Arts at Princeton University.

    Laura Splan of Brooklyn, NY, will be joining the Institute for Electronic Arts for an artist residency the week of February 20th. Laura, who received her MFA at Mills College in Oakland, California, explores intersections of art, science, technology, and craft in her work. In recent work, she has been using her own body to generate bio-data to be used in the production of sculptures and images, a project that has manifested itself in a variety of materials and formats including computerized jacquard woven tapestries and 3D printed sculptures.

    Throughout her residency, Laura intends to create computer generated animated weavings from bio-data collected via Arduino microcontrollers. The waveforms generated from this data will be used in AfterEffects and other software with animation, sound, parenting, and expressions to create animated weavings that visualize and embody the experiences from which they were derived.

    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.

    As part of the Wellness Center's Winter Meltdown, we are leading a recreational laughing event this Wednesday (2/22) at 5:30PM near the info desk on the second floor of Powell. One way to describe this type of thing is as "laughter yoga," but this bears little resemblance to actual yoga. I've planned out a sequence of laughing "exercises" that do not require there to be any joke - the laughter begins voluntarily (like a forced laugh) but then feeds on itself and becomes real as people let themselves be amused by the situation. It's nice 30 minute break on your way to dinner.

    There will be silliness, absurdity, camaraderie, and the opportunity to be playful in the middle of the week. We will be impossible to ignore in the middle of Powell, and anyone walking by is welcome to join in the fun. I am confident hilarity will ensue.

    This is a great way to let loose some stress, get a little endorphin rush, and even burn some extra calories. If you think you could use a little pick-me-up, it would be great to have faculty, staff, and students all share a laugh - bring a friend with you to share the experience!

    Artist Talk Thursday, February 2, 4:30pm in Binns C co-sponsored by Print Club

    Calvert's work explores the relationships that develop between everyday objects and popular culture references. Following the ideals of Romanticism, emphasis is given to an individual experience of emotion. A moment of spontaneity allows for humour and a subtle twist to avoid an overwhelming glorifications of the past through objects of the mundane. His influences are heavily drawn from contemporary and modern printmakers such as Richard Hamilton, René Magritte, and the self-promoting antics of the YBA (Young British Artist) culture. Myles Calvert was born in Collingwood, Ontario (Canada). He attended the University of Guelph with a focus in printmaking and art history, before traveling to London, UK where he completed his MA in Printmaking at Camberwell College of Art (University for the Arts, London). Major bodies of work included mass installations of screen printed toast and the idolization of popular British celebrity.

    What does it mean to be an ecological citizen? In this workshop we will seek to answer this question by discussing what "ecology" and "citizenship" mean in the first place, how an individual or a community can build their ecological identity, and how that foundation can inform how we engage with the world. Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of their familiarity with the concepts above. All that is required is a willingness to share ideas and learn!

    This workshop is part of my Honors thesis as well as my final step to graduate from the Women's Leadership Academy. Though I will be leading the workshop, it will be based in group discussion, and I will also be learning along with you. Visual material generated during the workshop will later be incorporated into a zine. Participants will be credited if they wish to be.

    The IEA welcomes Zorica Colic of New York, NY, as our artist in residence over the week of March 20th. Zorica, who received her MFA from the Electronic Integrated Arts program of the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Zorica's work researches how contemporary life is structured and manipulated, with particular emphasis on the implications of the biopolitical management of human life. Through various hybridized forms of display, her works explore the complex relationships between politics, art and consumer worlds, examining how our lives are regulated or defined by taste, by products, and by mass-distributed role models. The goal is to identify new ways to subvert normative mass culture in order to re-contextualize images and signs that have become inflated from over-proliferation.
    During her residency Zorica intends to further develop a video project titled Well-beings. These videos bring into focus a person defragmenting into commodity through the technological virtual, while investigating themes such as subtle manipulation of human emotions and behavior admist current conditions that are hyper-mediated, and increasingly focused on self-presentation. A face no longer functions as the site of identity but rather a terrain equally inhabited by intimacy, familiarity, strangeness, and the anxiety. For her residency, Zorica plans to extend her project into a multi-channel video installation with surround sound, presenting different "heads" or "creatures" put into a conversation.

    Ray Ferreira, of Brooklyn, NY, will be at the Institute for Electronic Arts for an artist residency over the week of March 13th. Ray, who received his MFA from Hunter College in 2016, uses Englishes, Spanishes, and body languages to explore ways, which his body is manifested and manifests worlds, and ways his body aims to create a different ontoepistoethics. He views his texts as modular, pieces coming into and out of existence, stretching across spaces, times, and matters.
    During his residency, Ray intends to explore his texts using the IEA's analog and digital tools to further explore his texts and create new mixes. He will be experimenting with what happens when the spiral goes out of control - as in different systems - exploring what happens when audiovisual textures weave in and out as the text dances around.
