Amy Karle’s mission is to positively impact others, raise consciousness and contribute to social, political, and technical development by making and sharing her work. As an artist and designer, Karle is also a provocateur and a futurist, leveraging new technologies to create art that catalytically examines material and spiritual aspects of life and open minds to future visions of how technology could be utilized to unlock human potential.

Amy Karle attended Alfred University and Cornell University, where she received degrees in Art and Design and Philosophy. Karle is co-founder of Conceptual Art Technologies and has shown work in 46 exhibitions worldwide. She is the inventor of registered active patents, service marks and trademarks in medical and technology categories.

Amy works as a full-time artist expressing experiences in visual forms, often designing technologies to improve the body and functions of the human in the process. She has been named one of the “Most Influential Women in 3D Printing” and her bio-art work has contributed to the establishment of a new discipline in the art world.  The long-term goals of her work are to continue to pioneer in the bioart field and make contributions to healthcare and mind-body medicine in the process.

And the hydrogen jet fast

and the hydrogen jet fast
not just some folkloric creature, but a real one with
and the hydrogen jet fast
and buggy eyes
and the hydrogen jet fast
i’ve been losing sleep at night
consist of devil, laser the laser
and buggy eyes
and the hydrogen jet fast
bring it, initiate a love affair
when the movie was back to earth
when the movie was back to earth
when the movie was back to earth
and the hydrogen jet fast
let’s crawl, let’s scratch, let’s tear out the life force
let’s tear out the life force
continuous dare
saly sonic, retain sonic, computer my sonic
saly sonic
it’s favored, it’s chilling
my suicide story of galaxy vixen, tug
not just some folkloric creature, but a real one with
listen, the devil is here
drink her plain heart
my irregular, your hot fuel ancient.

eia alumni Nicole Rademacher is organizing an online exhibition titled “home”, which also includes the work of another alumni Brandon Barr. Along with adjunct instructor of drawing and painting Hope Zaccagni, and many others around the world. The show opens today September 1st, 2020, you can see the exhibition here http://acogedor.space/gallery/.

When hearing the word “home” we often think of the place where we reside. When the “Shelter-At-Home” orders came in throughout the country and world, many of us found ourselves adapting to a new way of living where we did pretty much everything (i.e. sleeping, working, eating, pooping, loving…)  from a single place––for some, a single room. The home became a place of both respite and stress, leaving us with the necessity to find new ways to be at home.

Interested in exploring the shifting nature of home, Acogedor invited submissions from artists worldwide across mediums––artists who identify as BIPOC or from historically marginalized backgrounds were especially encouraged to apply. The exhibition is the first for Acogedor, which had previously only hosted intimate events, and it serves as a launching pad for more activities online––shifting from inviting people into her home (artist Nicole Rademacher) to bringing art and conversation to your homes via the internet.

All of the work in the exhibition has been created during quarantine (since March 16, 2020). Each artist examined their relationship to their abode as well as the social isolation that ensued with being confined to their residences. The lived experiences of 42 artists spanning 5 countries have been chosen to show and explore the diverse experiences that each of us is experiencing in this, certainly, bizarre new world.

POINT ZERO WOODY VASULKA

FOSDICK-NELSON GALLERY September 11 – October 12, 2020

Imagine imagining a poetics, not the one you were trained in, not one as yet known, but an emergent grammar, vocabulary, and syntax being coaxed out of new technologies, technologies of electric energy flows, and the machines you might build to dialog with them. Then how to write the codex using these tools, what would it look like, how would it move us, where would you start.

The Division of Expanded Media is happy to present the exhibition  POINT ZERO, featuring video artworks by the pioneering media artist Woody Vasulka (1937-2019). The exhibition investigates Woody’s research and discoveries in electronic moving-image, featuring original works and contemporary interpretations. We look forward to having you join us for this very special all-video exhibition, featuring multi-channel and single-channel video and sound. The exhibition will be open September 11 – October 12, 2020. – Written by Rebekkah Palov
