Existing in the In-Between: Nancy Baker Cahill’s New Media Practice

Existing in the In-Between: Nancy Baker Cahill’s New Media Practice

11:04

Nancy Baker Cahill is a new media artist who examines themes of power, selfhood, and embodied consciousness through drawing and shared immersive space. Baker Cahill’s artwork pushes the boundaries of visuality, redefining what it means to be a digital artist working in public space. Her spatial creations are often presented in augmented reality (AR) and are accessed via her free app, 4th Wall. Through the app, Baker Cahill has created a platform where viewers can immerse themselves in her virtual artwork as well as the work of other artists. As a curator, Baker Cahill uses 4th Wall to explore resistance and creative inclusion, by collaborating with other artists and inviting them to share urgent concerns or untold stories.

Raed Yassin: Hyper-Disciplinary Collective Histories

Raed Yassin: Hyper-Disciplinary Collective Histories

12:07

Raed Yassin (born 1979, Beirut) is an artist and musician whose work often originates from an examination of his personal narratives and their position within a collective history, through the lens of consumer culture and mass production. He graduated from the theater department at the Institute of Fine Arts in Beirut in 2003, and since then has developed his conceptual practice through multiple mediums, including video, sound, photography, text, sculpture and performance. In one of his largest and most recent works “The Sea Between My Soul,” installed at the Onassis Stegi Foundation in Athens Greece, Raed Yassin’s hyper-disciplinary practice evolves into a multi-sensory theatrical performance and sculptural extravaganza. A rock musical performed by taxidermy animals, “The Sea Between My Soul” crosses boundaries between installation and theater, music and light, life and death and is a morbid reflection on the long-standing history of fatalities in the Mediterranean Sea.  

Kelly Jazvac  and  Patricia Corcoran: Plastic Entanglements

Kelly Jazvac + Patricia Corcoran: Plastic Entanglements

10:48

Join Canadian artist Kelly Jazvac and geologist Patricia Corcoran as they discuss the global problem of plastics pollution and their collaborative work to address it. Jazvac, Corcoran, and oceanographer Charles Moore introduced the now ubiquitous term “plastiglomerate” in a 2014 article published in GSA Today, based on field research conducted on Kamilo Beach, Hawaii. Since then, Jazvac and Corcoran have helped to found the Synthetic Collective, an interdisciplinary group of artists, scientists, and others working to sample, map, understand, and visualize the complexities of plastics and micro-plastics pollution in the Great Lakes region. As Jazvac points out, simply recycling plastic is not a feasible solution, given the overwhelming amounts dumped into the environment. More awareness-raising and engagement with communities, governmental agencies, the plastics industry as well as practitioners from various disciplines are needed to tackle the deeply entangled problem of plastics pollution. 

Shona Kitchen: Foraging the Everyday

Shona Kitchen: Foraging the Everyday

07:26

Artist, designer and educator, Shona Kitchen, uses digital, analog and biological elements to forage through different technological landscapes. In her work, Kitchen explores the psychological, social and environmental consequences of technological advancement and failure. Whether creating a surveillance system for a school of fish or a tidal monitoring sign for a creek-bed, she uses her work to provocatively critique our relationship with natural and technological worlds in order to speculate about what could be. Kitchen’s work spans public art, conceptual narrative proposals, book works, exhibitions and interactive sculpture/installation. Her practice is frequently collaborative, research-based and site-specific. Her projects often function as imagined propositions, and/or alternate or future histories. Kitchen’s work reveals and subverts the unseen technological forces in the world around us to expose our shifting role as creators, consumers and unwitting victims of technology.

Noa Yekutieli at home with 'The Chaos of Order”

Noa Yekutieli at home with "The Chaos of Order”

09:29

The Israeli-American artist, Noa Yekutieli, explores the notion of narrative formation by engaging various mediums including site-specific installation, manual paper cutting, photography and drawing. Through disassembly and assembly, Yekutieli explores time, decay, and restoration via a cultural and personal lens. The negative space of the paper cuts renders absence visible, attesting to a loss of information or misplaced memories. Mirroring the human desire for control, the paper cutting is a labor-induced effort that doesn’t allow mistakes, it is an irreversible process that emphasizes and demonstrates irreversible destruction.

Fritz Haeg's Salmon Creek Farm

Fritz Haeg's Salmon Creek Farm

08:00

SCI-Arc Channel joins Tim Ivison to explore the history and transformation of Fritz Haeg’s Salmon Creek Farm. The New York Times says: ‘Salmon Creek Farm is communal living, the 21st-century way. Haeg’s vision is to bring together artists whose work, he says, ‘‘goes beyond conventional studio practice,’’ and who, rather, are ‘‘responding to wilderness and the basics of daily life.’’’

Salmon Creek Farm is located two miles from California’s Mendocino coast on 35 acres of mostly second-growth redwoods. From gardens, meadows and fruit orchard on a ridge-top, the property slopes down to Big Salmon Creek in the valley. A cottage in the orchard is followed by an octagonal sauna, various out-houses and out-buildings, and ten hand-crafted cabins secluded on footpaths throughout the property and across a tributary that bisects the land.
