beepr

A new performance by Irene Moon uses R software programming language to make music.  As quoted from the beepr documentation: "beepr is an R package that contains one function, beep(), with one purpose: To make it easy to play notification sounds on whatever platform you are on. It is intended to be useful, for example, if you are running a long analysis in the background and want to know when it is ready."

It is ready!

zoom_zzee2 microtheater

 


zoom_zee2 is a video collaboration performed over Instagram with the analog video magicians Lovid. The performance includes a live micro theater (microtheater) of native bees of California and some discussion about the bee's anatomy and distributions. This microtheater also includes a little music to go along with the show and is part of the Begonia Society exploration in tracking species during climate change. If we know what species are around us perhaps we will know when they are missing?

Irene Moon as featured artist: First Person, Fourth Wall by People Like Us

Hallwalls Artist in Residence (HARP)

FEATURED

Vicki Bennett (PeopleLikeUs) is Hallwalls Artist in Residence (HARP) at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center in Buffalo, NY from 2019-2020. 

For Vicki's First Person, Fourth Wall project Irene Moon, along with other artists, were invited to contribute an audio-visual interpretation around the theme.  Of course, Irene gave a lecture about insects in a piece titled Part of the Class. This was happening anyway as she was teaching entomology online around that time.

First Person, Fourth Wall by People Like Us (Vicki Bennett)

This multi-tiered project features an onsite new film and 6 channel audio collage work in the Hallwalls gallery, a virtual film retrospective, and a series of online micro-commissions programmed by the artist, where collaborators across the field of visual, audio and textual art respond to the subjects of first-person / the fourth wall. The retrospective screening features archive and new content from Vicki Bennett’s 30 years of creating work under the name People Like Us. To coincide with the exhibition will be a new second edition of her artist’s book The Fundamental Questions, all made possible in part with a major grant to HARP (Hallwalls Artists-in-Residence Project) from the Multidisciplinary program of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), a federal agency, with additional support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Visual Art Program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), M&T Bank, and Erie County.

The commissions and elements from the onsite exhibition will be archived at WFMU.org, alongside visual elements on the accompanying web pages, which will be linked to with QR codes in the accompanying gallery brochure.
