<nettime-ann> [event] Upgrade Vancouver//with Reva Stone


.

Join us February 13 at 8pm for a talk by Reva Stone. Stone will provide
an
overview of her practice, including documentation of her recent work,
Imaginal Expression, on exhibit at the Surrey Art Gallery until April 2.
This viewer activated, computer-generated, real-time animated, 3D
environment uses 3D imagery based on protein molecules, wrapped with
scanne=
d
imagery from the human body - flesh, hair, blood vessels, bruises and
scars=
.
As people are sensed in the Gallery, the molecular components begin to
animate to form a molecule, to mutate, and follow the movement of the
visitor. When the visitor leaves, the molecule begins to degenerate. She
will also provide an introduction to the project she is currently
developin=
g
while working as an Artist in Residence in the TechLab. Exchange
combines
voice and face recognition software, video capture and graphics to create
a
work that appears to have sentience.

After the talk we'll adjourn to the Whip Gallery for refreshments that
have
nothing to do with Valentine's Day.

Reva Stone is a Canadian artist well known for her work with digital
technologies. She has worked with video, net.art, interactive
installations=
,
robotics, responsive 3D environments, and currently is working with
voice
and face recognition technologies. For more than 10 years Reva Stone has
been investigating western culture=B9s drive to model, simulate, engineer

manipulate biological life. Living matter is being revealed as
increasingly
mutable. Reva Stone has exhibited her work internationally and is also
