Finally finished working on an installation and tonight
is the opening for the State of the Art exhibit, curated
by Steve Dietz, of which the installation is a part. The
electricity-list and then the electronetwork-list have been
going on for several years, so I would like to share the
experience with those here, so I placed images online
with some minor descriptions though hopefully enough
to give the effect (or maybe not). Feedback is welcome.
The curator's statement at the bottom achieves all I have
hoped to communicate over years of working on these
ideas, which makes this pivotal in many ways for ways
of approaching ideas. This is an installation of artifacts,
and could be held in any country with any variety of
objects and ideas. Though it is through this 'crazy quilt'
like approach of many displays, from stamps to films
to electronics to unplugged artifacts, that could be a
way to integrate today's works in larger collections,
and to tap new contexts for exhibiting ideas together
(with regard but not limited to electromagnetism, works).

** also, came up with a low-tech approach to visualizing
EMFs at the last minute, and below is an image of this.
The holographic sticker paper was found at a craft store
and overlapped as perpendicular waves (electric/magnetic)
and attempts to gesture/sketch at the idea of EMFs in various
places, by the TV, outlets, radio scanner, light, etc.

Electromagnetic Fields represented by holographic sticker paper on
black background, affixed to the wall by power outlets and other EMF
generating devices. Located near clear acrylic wallplate for power
In any case, hope you can visit the exhibit. Feedback on-list
or off-list is appreciated. This is a collection of artifacts so it is
the general approach is communicated through the display
systems of shelves, bulletin board, whiteboard, and various
other systems for ways to bring different things into relation
with one another, such as a transistor and a vacuum tube.
Off to the opening now... Brian (linked on main page below, also)
