December 10 – Feburary 1, 2019



voidAwake (){ { will open on December 10 to Feburary 1, 2019 at the New Media Artspace gallery in Baruch's Library and Information Building, 151 E. 25th Street.

Curatorial Statement

The exhibition voidAwake (){ collects the capstone projects of Baruch’s New Media Art minor students into a programmed gallery show that questions humanity, agency, and perception in an ever-evolving, technological world.} The main title, voidAwake (){, and the subsequent sub-groupings are modeled after C# code syntax. C# functions as the primary coding language of 3D video game construction. By using it to organize our work, we are symbolically positioning ourselves as artists and the viewers of our work as programmable objects.

The titles for each sub-group of our showing, BuildHumanAvatar, RenderMeaning.active, and transform.Translate(x, y, z), and compass.Enabled(urban), echo the questions we asked while creating these works: Do we “look at” of our own accord? Is it our choice to create meaning? Are we following the programming of another? Are we transferring our agency to the code itself? Have we become a product of the code?

In any artistic practice, the artist struggles to mold a flexible, yet unyielding, medium to a desire, expression, or vision. New Media Art is no different. By handing our works over to this algorithm, we make our ties — our collusion — with the digital realm transparent for the viewer. We invite you to accept your programming and see what we see.
