Imagining Radical Futures Through Art and Technology, Scarlett Newman, δημοσίευση στο The CUT [16/12/2022]Marilena Pateraki
This week, the Cut’s editor-in-chief Lindsay Peoples gathered with performance artist and sculptor Miles Greenberg and Salome Asega of the New Museum for a panel conversation titled “Imagining Radical Futures Through Art and Technology.”
Greenberg — whose exhibition “The Shadow of Spring” is currently on view at the New Museum — centers the physical body in his work, often using sculpture to complete his immersive experiences. “The Shadow of Spring,” which was created in collaboration with experimental musician Vivian Cacurri, interrogates sound and vibration and their abilities to create collective transformative experiences. The exhibit features sculptures, embroidery pieces, and sound works all exploring how the body interacts with and is affected by sound waves.
Asega, who works as the director of New Inc, a New Museum–led incubator for art, technology, and design, is also an artist and researcher whose work bridges the gap between technology and traditional art practices. Her work, past and present, is meant to foster community through tech. Take, for example, her 2014 project The Crown Heights Mic. A sort of radio broadcast network constructed by Crown Heights residents and other neighborhood stakeholders that created “sound funnels” around public spaces like schools, libraries, and places of worship to document local voices and storytelling.
Below, excerpts from their conversation.
