Exhibition: Network Ecologies Arts in the Edge
curated by Amanda Starling Gould, featuring Karin and Shane Denson and Rebecca Norton
The Network Ecologies Arts in the Edge exhibition brought to 'life' two art collections by artists who had submitted multimedia articles for publication in the Network Ecologies digital project. With the help of the Duke Franklin Humanities Institute, the Duke PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge, and Duke Libraries Digital Scholarship Services, editor Amanda Starling Gould moved the artworks from page to wall curating a public exhibition that lived at the Duke Edge Library from April to August 2015.
Combining machinic and human agencies in the form of generative sculpture, painting, and augmented reality (AR), the works by Karin and Shane Denson probe the material and virtual value of today's networked ecology in "Making Mining Networking," a body of work meditating on the creation and exploitation of value in digital environments. Rebecca Norton uses affine geometry to explore actions and intuitions of intermediacy—what she describes as a feeling of being suspended in the middle stages of a process. Works chosen for exhibition included paintings and digital interactive artworks made in collaboration with Eddie Elliot, and image stills from her video project "Wandering Through Childhood."
