A unique internet art exhibition will be held Thursday, April 5, from 3- 5 p.m. in 115 of the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts at Penn State Altoona.
Produced by assistant professor of visual arts studies A. Bill Miller, Speed Show will feature eighteen internationally recognized internet artists who were tasked with creating a Web-based response to the following question: What is "Internet"? Their responses and submissions make up the exhibition.
Each piece will be presented on its own work station within Penn State Altoona’s Visual Arts Studies lab. The lab will become a space filled with participants in two roles: artists working individually within the larger connections of the Internet and exhibition visitors. Viewers may also visit the exhibition Web site at www.master-list2000.com/speedshowextracredit.html to see details and artist information.
Miller earned his MFA at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He has served as an associate lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and as an instructor at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. His nationally- and internationally-exhibited works include his acclaimed Gridworks Project, which comprises abstract ASCII drawings, ink drawings, animated GIFs, and video elements.
The Speed Show exhibition series was conceived by Berlin artist Aram Bartholl in June 2010.
