Go For Launch is a large scale 12 screen interactive video art installation. The artistic recreation of an Apollo Saturn 1B launch uses authentic archival NASA audio and video footage to simulate the explosive power and emotion of one of humanity’s greatest achievements. It is a monument to the success of the past and a challenge to the present generation.

GO FOR LAUNCH
APRIL – JULY
Opens Wednesday May 6, 6:00p
Gardner Post and Brian Kane are artists working with video and emerging technologies in large-scale performance oriented installation and media-activism. Their new work at Munoz Waxman will include an interactive installation using original uncut NASA footage from the first space missions. It is a commentary on the Space Race, and the competition to land on the moon that was a product of the Cold War, technological superiority, and the real fear on both sides that the other might place weapons of mass destruction in space, all issues that are particularly relevant to both the region and the current political climate.
Addictive TV headline Battlejam at Cargo in London, Easter 2009. Brainchild
of Beardyman, the UK beatboxing champion and all round rhythmic wonder,
Battlejam runs in both London (at Cargo) and in Brighton (at Audio). The
Easter 2009 special also featured Beardy’s mate and DMC champion scratcher
JFB, beat-jazzman Onyx Ashanti and his ‘robo oboe’, plus others for a night
of sampling and remix madness.
A few weeks ago, we re-launched the WGBH Forum Network website.
The WGBH Forum Network is an online video lecture site, featuring free online audio and video web lectures and mp3 download podcasts on science, politics, art, sports, history, and more.
There’s some great stuff on the site, including this lecture on Consciousness, Creativity, and the Brain by David Lynch at Emerson College, this lecture on Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness by Tal Ben-Shahar from the Museum of Science Boston, and some really cool Creative Mind radio interviews from the 1950′s, like this interview with Ben Shahn, The Painter as Creator.
We’ll be rolling out lots of new content and some fun new features over the next few months, too, so check back from time to time.
Acela HDADD Xperiment
In January, I had the good fortune of working out some new creative ideas with Xav Perkins, aka eXceeda. We had a few weeks to develop a few concepts, one of which is the above high speed train video. Another is the Bugs Bunny edit which I have put on HDADD.
This train footage is a prototype for an installation piece we are developing – and which I think will be beautiful.
It’s a real pleasure working with Xavier. He’s an amazing editor and has boundless creative energy.
