The participating artists: Andy Deck, Mark Napier, and rtmark.com, use collaboration, appropriation, collage and territorial marking to redefine the relationship of public and commercial space. To participate through web go to www.movingimagegallery.com ! Or go directly to Open Studio on http://artcontext.org. ! The online "studio space" will be projected in the gallery ! Wednesday night during the opening. There will be a digital ! whiteboard for people to scribble on, which will send their ! drawings onto the Internet, into the online Open Studio. ! Hopefully the gallery scene will be enhanced by participation ! from afar (hint hint!). That's Wed. 6-9pm east-coast time in the USA. There will also be a discussion involving the artists, Andy Deck and Mark Napier. September 20, 2000 at 7-9pm @ Moving Image Gallery. Moving Image Gallery 414 Broadway #3 NY, NY 10003 Ideogram Part 2 features: Deck- Open Studio seeks to occupy and articulate a middle ground between art and interactive entertainment, between communication and creativity, and between independent and collaborative expression. Deck's web project Artcontext explores the hybrid phenomena like network-drawing spaces, game-like search engines, written pictures, and informative art. Napier- Digital Landfill, an archive of digital debris, explores the fine line between art and debris. The work continually mutates as visitors 'discard' text and images. Each contribution represents a choice, an evaluation of what 'belongs' in the work. The Landfill, like the web, is a cumulative group effort. Rtmark.com- Deconstructing Beck is a popular glorification of corporate power, in hopes to spark dialogue on corporate wrongs through the misguided form of techno-utopianism. Deconstructing Beck is the latest of more than twenty sabotage projects made possible by RTMARK since its beginnings in 1991. Collaborating in this project with the artists and Michele N. Thursz of Moving Image Gallery is Steve Williams. Williams an exhibiting artist was educated at the University of Illinois School of Architecture and at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He was a member of the Randolph Street Gallery (Chicago) exhibitions committee, where he curated shows and helped in the realization of individual artists' projects.
