Artist In Residence - Joseph MooreDates: September 16-20 Location: The Institute for Electronic Arts Sponsored by: The Institute for Electronic Arts / NYSCA
Joseph Moore is an artist whose conceptually based practice utilizes a variety of techniques and media, from photography to network-based art. His recent work investigates the place of the non-human within the context of photographic history as well as labor, temporality, and surveillance. He has exhibited in venues such as Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Tel Aviv, Israel; Microscope Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; WORM, Rotterdam, The Netherlands; Outlet Fine Art, Brooklyn, NY; Arebyte, London, England; and in collections such as The Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art at Cornell. He received his B.F.A. from The Atlanta College of Art and his M.F.A. from Bennington College.
During his residency at IEA Joseph Moore will create a series of print‐based works that draw upon material from his long‐term project "The Inhabitants." Began in 2014, "The Inhabitants" is an archive of 24‐hour recordings made from poorly secured web cameras focused on non‐human animals. Though this material Moore considers the place of the non‐human animal both as subject and often as material in the history of photography and cinema as well as in current technologies of surveillance.
The Institute for Electronic Art’s Experimental Projects Residency is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
