Networked curated by Donna Kessinger, New Media Room

April 19 – May 17, 2008
Opening Reception Saturday April 19, 7-10 PM

According to independent curator and video artist Donna Kessinger, the world of networked art is expansive and constantly evolving daily with new technology and applications. Networked is an effort to take into consideration both literal and physical interpretations based on an open call for networked art on a local and international level. This small group survey is an attempt to look at the manifestation of net-based interactive projects, and physical attempts to escape from virtual realities, resulting in work with a more personal connection – going back to an idea of networks having to do with people and the way we live and work, both alone and in community.

Artists: William Brovelli, Doris Cacoilo, Beatrice Coron, The Coalition for Daring Behavior, Sean Hovendick, Visakh Menon, William Oliwa, Gunter Puller, Katherine Sweetman, Amanda Thackray, Michelle Wilson, Jody Zellen

  1. William Brovelli’s Accumulative heads was chilling!A wonderful example of isolation within the vast numbers of people, and control with a click.
    Katherine Sweetman’s work was also worth the trip into Newark.
    Donna Kessinger is a curator to an eye on and the Gallery Affero continues to do Jersey justice.
