Eco Art Tech

- Location: Nevins Theater
(9:00 AM - 11:15 AM)
Eco Art Tech

Date: Wednesday, April 10
Time: 9-11:15 A.M.
Location: Nevins Theater
Cost to Attend: Free
Sponsored By: STUDIO VISITS, Foundations, SoAD and Department of Digital Media and Animation at Alfred State College

Cary Peppermint and Leila Nadir together produce work under the name Eco Art Tech. Their work engages various contemporary issues dealing with sustainability and ecology using custom-built software that forms an innovative approach to activism and new media technologies.

We believe that their work walks a critical line between medium specific practices and contemporary issues in art and culture. A collaboration between our schools to bring Eco Art Tech to Alfred would be a fantastic experience for our students as well as the students in the Divisions of Expanded Media, Foundations, Art History and perhaps others as well.

In my brief conversation with Cary and Leila, they expressed an interest in giving a presentation of their work, potentially giving graduate student studio visits and perhaps holding a workshop using their "indeterminate hike" project, found here: http://ecoarttech.org/pro...

Leila and Cary’s research has been awarded a New York Foundation for the Arts Digital/Electronic Arts Fellowship, a New York State Council on the Arts Media Arts Distribution Grant, a Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Environmental Humanities, and a Franklin Furnace Performance Grant.

They have exhibited and lectured at the Whitney Museum, UCLA, MIT Media Lab, Banff New Media Institute, European Media Art Festival, Neuberger Museum of Art, and the Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga.

Their works are in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Walker Art Center, Rhizome.org<http://Rhizome.org> at the New Museum for Contemporary Art, Turbulence.org<http://Turbulence.org> of New Radio & Performing Arts, Inc., and the Cornell University Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art.

Leila earned her PhD in literature from Columbia University and was Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellow at Wellesley College in 2010-2011. Cary is Assistant Professor of Digital Art at University of Rochester, where Leila teaches humanities courses in the sustainability studies program.
