Join us to welcome Victoria to our community and to support MAP and it's unique programming!
Thursday October 20th
Doors open at 7pm, program begins at 7:30
Victoria Bradbury is a media artist weaving programming code, physical computing, body and object. She is Assistant Professor of New Media at University of North Carolina Asheville. Victoria has this to say about her work:
"Seeking new modes of making with time, I came to programmatic artworks as a way out of, then back into, performativity. At the heart of my practice is a hands-on, experimental process that regards both analog and digital with equal weight and balance. Creating interactive installations led me to question how programmatic artworks that are void of a traditional stage-audience dichotomy can be considered performative."
At Revolve, Victoria will present examples of art hacking events she has organized, including Thinking Digital Arts // Hack and show examples of her work, including Witch Pricker, an installation based upon a 1649 event in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK, in which a group of local residents were accused of witchcraft. Their trial-by-ordeal was to be pricked with a pin; those who bled were deemed human, those who did not bleed were found guilty and executed on the Town Moor. She will also present the Blue Boar installation, which activates a programmatic and sculptural interface and places a contemporary gallery visitor in the Salem witch trials in colonial Massachusetts.
