> Fertile Grounds is a survey of current New Media work in San Francisco
by
> Bay Area artists. The exhibition examines a diverse cross-section of
> practices and themes at the forefront of San Francisco's pioneering
> artistic community. Included works are from both established and
emerging
> artists who find themselves immersed in a diverse mixture of cultural
> factors; a mixture uniquely conducive to New Media Art.
> 
> Defined by a half-century of activism and counterculture, San
Francisco
> exists within the American social and political landscape as an
autonomous
> zone. It is a place where lifestyle is reinvented with an emphasis on
> personal freedom and cultural cognizance. Alternately, San Francisco
is
> known for its denizen's accelerated relationship with technology. A
> product of its proximity to Silicon Valley, the city is a playground
for
> new technologies. A place where technology is applied to human
problems
> and integrated into increasingly digital lifestyles.
> 
> The exhibited artists in Fertile Grounds combine and manipulate
> technologies into synthetic mediums, rendering phenomena that are
dynamic
> and multi-modal. These artists are functioning in a mode approaching
the
> pre-Renaissance ideal of the natural-philosopher, a mode epitomized by
the
> re-unification of artistic and scientific roles. They continue a
tradition
> of multi-disciplinary thought and they create the next step in the art
> worldâ??s continuing evolution.
