"Immobilité," a “foreign film” by Mark Amerika

October 9, 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Manoa Campus, Art Building, Auditorium

Multi-disciplinary artist Mark Amerika will give an introduction to "Immobilité," his “foreign film” shot entirely with a mobile phone. This feature-length film (78 minutes) is presented in conjunction with "CONVERGENCE: Glitch_Click_Thunk, Featuring Mark Amerika," an exhibition on view at the University of Hawai'i Art Gallery from October 6 – December 6, 2013.

The "CONVERGENCE" series encompasses and explores the impact of internet art, digital, electronic, sound and a wide range of new, traditional, and hybrid technologies on communication and art. Its inaugural installation features noted author, professor, and multimedia artist Mark Amerika. In dynamic interaction with Mark Amerika, the Lithopixel Refactory Collective sets up and works in a temporary production studio that is equal parts lithography, digital printing, live audio, print gallery, and shredding facility creating a constantly evolving exchange, employing dialogue and re-mix, resulting in synthesis.

Mark Amerika is a cult novelist, media theorist, web publisher, and live audio/visual artist whose interdisciplinary artworks have been shown at museums and galleries around the world including the Walker Art Center, the Denver Art Museum, the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, and the American Museum of the Moving Image. His exhibition history includes the Whitney Biennial, the Istanbul Biennale, and the Biennale de Montréal as well as four major retrospectives, one each at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, the Media Arts Plaza in Tokyo, Ciberart Bilbao, and FILE in São Paulo along with art commissions from venues such as the Walker Art Center, the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, IBM, Sony PlayStation, and the Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts in Tokyo. In 2001, he was named a Time Magazine 100 Innovator as part of a continuing series that features the most influential artists, scientists, entertainers, and philosophers of the 21st century. His recent publishing credits include remixthebook (University of Minnesota Press), and a large collection of artist writings entitled META/DATA: A Digital Poetics (The MIT Press). Mark Amerika is currently a professor at the University of Colorado in Boulder.

"Convergence: Glitch_Click_Thunk" will feature a range of his recent work, including his ongoing investigations of glitch aesthetics which he describes thus: “ . . . what if the delivery of high definition data streams start breaking up and creating colorful artifacts you have no control over? One response would be to become impatient with the technology as it dysfunctions right before our eyes. In fact, these disturbances can be visualized as little or even big glitches that at first may seem a nuisance but, on second look, from an artistic perspective, are actually more interesting than the clear signals we’re used to seeing in commercial culture.” The exhibition will also feature Immobilité which premiered at the Chelsea Art Museum’s Project Room for New Media and has been screened at National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens, Greece and at the VI Seminário Internacional de Cinema e Audiovisual in Salvador, Brazil.
