Peter d’Agostino: World-Wide-Walks @40 ( 1973 -2013 ) – a preview
Professor d’Agostino will show selections from his World-Wide-Walks projects in an event co-sponsored by SUNY’s Media Study Department and Techne Institute. Initiated in San Francisco as The Walk Series, these video documentation / performances from the 1970s evolved into video / web projects in the 1990s and mobile / locative media productions during the 2000s. The presentation will include a current work-in-progress, World-Wide-Walks / between earth & sky / ICE, which received a Temple University Vice Provost for the Arts grant and was previewed at ISEA 2013, International Symposium on Electronic Art, Sydney, Australia in June.
Professor d’Agostino will participate in the SURVEILLANCE screenings and panel discussions at the Brooklyn Historical Society, sponsored by New York University’s Moving Image Archiving & Preservation program. Excerpts from his Comings and Goings (1977-79 / 2008) series will be screened. PARIS (Metro), San Francisco (BART), and Washington DC (METRO) are works from this series which concern surveillance in mass transit systems. Restored by the Getty Research Institute, these video installation projects were exhibited at the Getty Museum, Los Angeles in 2008.
Professor d’Agostino’s video works are distributed by Electronic Arts Intermix, New York.
