[Nettime-bold] [Thundergulch] Presenting Acclaimed New Media Artist Siimon Biggs (UK)

Thundergulch at the New School University

New Media Artist Simon Biggs (UK)

Monday, April 22nd, 6:00 PM, 2002 --- FREE
66 Fifth Avenue, Parsons Auditorium, The New School University
Directions: The New School University is located between Fifth and Sixth
Avenues.  Take the F train to 14th Street, the N/R/4/5/6/L to Union
Square, or the M14 bus to Fifth Avenue.

THUNDERGULCH, the new media initiative of the Lower Manhattan Cultural
Council, is pleased to present England's acclaimed new media artist
Simon Biggs. A visual artist who has been working with digital
technologies and exploring computational interactivity since 1978, Biggs
has created works for the World Wide Web, interactive digital video,
CD-ROM, and the stage. Over the past two decades, Biggs' work has
obsessively explored issues around language, legibility, and the limits
of meaning; social structures, networks and systems of power as
artifacts to be navigated, deconstructed and re-valued. 

At his only New York City public appearance, Biggs will guide the
audience through a compelling body of work: from "Babel," his 3D
representation of the Dewey Decimal System used to navigate the World
Wide Web, to "The Great Wall of China," an online interactive
language-generating machine based on Franz Kafka's story of the same
title. Biggs will also show and discuss work from "Parallax," his latest
interactive environment co-created with choreographer Sue Hawksley.
