This summer I am visiting several sites in western states (NM, CO, MT) with my large format camera as I continue production on my Superfund photo series. This past weekend I was in western NM — uranium country — and drove back through the most magnificent thunderstorm. How I love the sky and openness out here!
Below is a snap shot I took in Milan, NM. I will be speaking about this very recent work (and the photography series in general) hosted by the Santa Fe Art Institute this Friday at 6pm at Tipton Hall.
Today I presented my Superfund365 viz and photographs at the Earth Science Info Partners (ESIP) gathering in Santa Fe at the beautiful La Fonda Hotel. Met some interesting people from EPA, NASA, NOAA and more. Learned about semantic visualization and got some inside scoop about possible future EPA data sharing plans… I chalk that up as a good day! Thanks to Tim Dye for making it happen.
More about ESIP:
The Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP Federation) is a broad-based community comprising researchers and associated groups that produce, interpret and develop applications for Earth and environmental science data.

We arrived last Sunday in Santa Fe for a month-long residency at the excellent Santa Fe Art Institute. At the end of our stay, I will be presenting my work on Friday, July 29, at 6pm. The following Saturday and Sunday, Ricardo and I will be co-teaching a rotoscoping workshop.
And, here is Iggy in our studio getting his first soldering demo from Dad. Top secret (robot) project to be unveiled September 2011 at Momenta Art, Brooklyn…
Where you will find news and upcoming events and other tidbits from me (Brooke Singer / aka admin). New Year’s Resolution 2011 = to not be such a delinquent regarding my website and cyber presence. Giving it a go, again.
On the day after I land back in Israel, I will participate in a very interesting event taking place in the context of the Bat-Yam Biennial of Landscape Urbanism. I have written a new essay for this biennial’s publication and for this event titled Getting Intimate with Invisible Audiences. In this essay I am using both Chat Roulette & the bible as two critical case studies through which to reorient the “privacy debate” and focus it on the invisible audiences that have been penetrating our social life online and recently on the street as well.
This would also be a great opportunity to reconnect in Israel after 5 years in NY.
Please join us this Thursday, September 16 as we continue our programming series Open-Sourcing the City: Invited and Uninvited Participation. In the last event, professor/author Miriam Greenberg established the relationship between city branding and urban development agendas like Bloomberg's "Luxury City". Against this backdrop, how can cultural creatives and spatial practitioners participate productively? What are constructive forms of critical engagement?
ROBOT featured a four-day festival featuring a robotic talent show, exhibition, workshops, presentations, party and massage parlor. The four-day event examined current applications of robotic technologies on creative practices, activism, consumerism and physical intimacy. Eyebeam concluded the event July 15 with a party from 6-10pm featuring music by DJ-I ROBOT, the first random-access, fully analog robotic DJ. All events are open to the public free of charge with a suggested donation.
Silent Project used multiple audio transmission technologies to broadcast music to individuals rather than to a group. Each participant heard a simultaneous broadcast of music, similar to what he or she would experience as a concert-goer, but this experience was internalized and isolated through entirely private audio devices. As a result, visitors who are not participating in the technology experienced the performance only as audience members.
Discover street art, stickers, stencils, posters and visual memes (self-replicating ideas) that are posted, copied and mutated in the streets of New York and around the world. During Fall For Chelsea’s one-day-only community arts festival, join us for StreetMemes.com walking tours and scavenger hunt. Guides, including resident meme-ologist and StreetMemes.com editor Ryan Watkin-Hughes, will start out from Eyebeam's facility at 540 W 21st Street between 10th & 11th Avenues. Tours will explore the streets of Chelsea, pointing out and discussing various street art works, then allow the scavenger hunters document the memes they find. Bring your digital cameras or camera phones in order to upload pics to the StreetMemes web database, at www.streetmemes.com, which tracks the global evolution of these viral art forms.
