Commissioned by Boston Cyberarts, four internationally acclaimed artists–John Craig Freeman, Kristin Lucas, Will Pappenheimer, and Tamiko Thiel–have created eight Augmented Reality (AR) sculptures for The Augmented Landscape, an open-air public art installation curated by George Fifield at the National Park Service’s Salem Maritime National Historic Site, on view now through November 30.
Inspired by Salem’s unique history and ecology and located on the city’s historic waterfront, the geo-located artworks delve into issues as diverse as East-West relations, New England’s maritime connections with Russia, Japan & China, American idealism, the discord between globalism and isolationism, piracy as warfare, as well as the effects of climate change, global warming and rising waters.

Mimi Cabell (Assistant Professor, Experimental and Foundation Studies) in collaboration with Phoebe Stubbs (MFA Glass ’11) will be presenting Contributors Inc., a project that uses the contents pages of magazines of art and design to reveal the biases in art’s critical history and canon, at the International Conference on Artistic Research at University of Arts Helsinki on April 28-29th.
Shawn Greenlee (Associate Professor, Experimental and Foundation Studies) recently gave a multi-channel audio performance at the Anchorage Museum Planetarium as part of the new Live at the Planetarium program, which will feature stars of the experimental music world through spring and summer 2017.
The Alaska News Dispatch called Greenlee’s performance a “amazing audiovisual monster.” Greenlee was quoted as saying of his performance “There’s a bit of a sense of wonder about where the sounds are coming from and how they’re being transformed,” he said. “It’s almost like an orchestra. Rather than independent players, each loudspeaker becomes like a member of the orchestra.”
