WEBSITE SLAM CONTEST and CLOSING NIGHT
Hosted by About.com's Philip Kain
It's the Biennial's Opening Gala and a guy named Secret Agent Gel slaps an electrode helmet onto your head and starts spinning some funky tunes directly from your own brain waves.
Discombobulated, you stagger over to the sleek-looking "GenoChoice" kiosk, and before you realize it, you're scanning in all 3 billion base pairs of your genome. And say, did Mr. Lee Mingwei the first human male to become pregnant just walk by?
9/9 - Net.Art presentation today at HERE's PSNBC Theater. Online video broadcast coming soon.
9/7 - A staggering turn-out for the Biennial's Opening Night Gala. Lots of percolating brain wave activity.
9/4 - Eric has finally tamed his Smart Child. The installation's computerized motion and pressure sensors are now fully functional.
9/3 - SoHo gallery owner Monique and her artist/geneticist Gabriela get a sneak peek at the Biennial and offer rave reviews.
9/2 - Industrial designer extraordinaire BJ Furr arrives in New York City to build the Biennial's net.art computer stations.
8/31 - All the way from The Art Institute of Chicago, faculty artist Eric Wielosinski shows up to install his stunning Smart Child interactive installation.
8/30 - Finished framing and hanging all of Tina's brilliant digital prints, hot off the press and zipped o'er from Australia.
8/29 - Lots of ooo's and ahhh's as we unwrap the work mailed to us by Tatiana and Elizabeth.
8/28 - Annie, the driver of one truck full of PaperVeins art and technology, BONKED into a double-parked Volvo... sending the side mirror flying into a rancorous NYC intersection. Virgil, the fearless curator, braved traffic to retrieve the projectile.
8/27 - Studio visit with Flash master James P and a merry and mesmerizing chat about life and art and the universe. James draws circles around the competition ...
8/26 - Virgil's back at the Hospital with some food-born pathogen sickness (from those yummy late night tacos whilst preparing for the show?!). Some nonchalant nurse leaves the I.V. in so long it starts sucking out blood!
8/25 - Virgil on vacation from webmastering the Hospital to pave the way for PaperVeins
8/24 - William's cat poops all over his new apartment. Thank Buddha -- the Biennial drawings are unsoiled.
