<nettime-ann> [event] Upgrade! Vancouver//with Steve DiPaola


The Upgrade! is an informal monthly meeting for new media artists and
curators held at the Western Front in Vancouver, Canada. The Upgrade!
series
is a forum for the presentation of new work and is meant to foster
dialogue
and create opportunities for collaboration within the media art
community.
At each meeting one or two artists present work in progress and
participate
in a discussion.
..........................................................................
Join us Tuesday, October 4th at 8pm for a talk, *Digital Portraiture in
the
Age of Virtuality*, by Steve DiPaola. Steve will demonstrate his
authoring
process and final still, installation and performance works centered
around
finding a new meaning for abstract portraiture in a new media context.
From
his 1988 Kraftwerk art video work, to new works that use AI to extract
emotion from music, that drive spherically projected portrait
installations,
or that evolve a family tree of portrait painting programs, Steve's work
delves into human-ness versus artifact in new media portraiture. He will
also talk to art-research practice and mixing new media art with
communication and education systems.

Steve DiPaola
As both an active artist and scientist, Steve DiPaola delves into the
concepts of the virtual and the social by creating virtual human and
community systems both in his research and art work. An Associate
Professor
at Simon Fraser University, Steve directs the I-Viz Lab (ivizlab.sfu.ca)
which strives to make computer systems bend more to the human experience.
He
came to SFU from Stanford University and before that spent 10 years as a
senior researcher at NYIT Computer Graphics Lab, an early pioneering lab
in
high-end 3D techniques. He has held senior positions at Electronic Arts
and
Saatchi & Saatchi Innovation and has consulted for HP, Kodak, Macromedia
and
the Institute for the Future. His art work has been exhibited
international
including the AIR and Tibor de Nagy galleries in NYC as well as the
Whitney
Museum of Art, and the IBM Gallery of Science and Art. With his wife, he
co-curated the first computer art show in a major NYC gallery in 1988.
