Tracey Snelling AlloCiné 马良 - Maleonn Museum of Arts and Design Collection Database Virtual reality has been a powerful factor in shaping our social and artistic environment since the 1970s. Today, innovations in digital technology have completely transformed film, video, and television: extraordinary special effects and three-dimensional imaging created using computer-based software are commonplace. However, while the digital world continues to expand into more and more areas of our lives, a profound human need to re-experience the actual and tangible has also arisen. It is not a coincidence that as individuals spend more and more time looking at a monitor interacting with others in cyberspace, the pleasures in making things by hand, engaging with materials and techniques in a direct fashion, also increase. Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities is organized around four themes that provide a context for the works, and offer the viewer a narrative thread that makes the works accessible to our visitors.

Wes Craven Favorite Horror Movies The Lone Star State has led a surprisingly progressive overhaul of its incarceration system. The story behind the bipartisan push that GOP contenders may be extolling come 2016. It appears Rick Perry is going to run for president again in 2016. Perry, 65, will leave the governor’s office next January after serving for 14 years, beginning in 2000, when George W. As he creeps back onto the national stage, Perry—who has overseen the executions of 268 people—more executions than any other governor in United States history—has brought with him an unlikely Lone Star State success story: prison reform. In Texas, funneling money to special courts (like drug courts or prostitution courts), rehabilitation, and probation in an effort to make sure current offenders don’t reoffend, instead of continuing to make room for more prisoners, has resulted in billions saved and dramatically lower crime rates. The conservative movement to reform prisons is not new. Bush Lt. (The most important question?

Site Design: One Plus One Programmed by: Black Plastic Do Ho Suh, Fallen Star - Stuart Collection - UC San Diego Do Ho Suh’s Fallen Star is the 18th permanent sculpture commissioned by UCSD’s Stuart Collection. It reflects Suh’s on-going exploration of themes around the idea of home, cultural displacement, the perception of our surroundings, and how one constructs a memory of a space. His own feelings of displacement when he arrived in the U.S. from Seoul, Korea in 1991 to study led him to measure spaces in order to establish relationships with his new surroundings. Suh’s small “home” has perhaps been picked up by some mysterious force and appears to have landed or crashed onto the seventh floor of Jacobs Hall at the Jacobs School of Engineering. Do Ho Suh graduated from Seoul National University. Funding has been made possible through private donations and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts’ program for Access to Artistic Excellence.

JeeYoung Lee Diplômée de Hongik University à Séoul, dans sa Corée natale, la jeune JeeYoung Lee photographie l'invisible. Là où la photographie traditionnelle soumet à nos yeux des extraits du réel, l'artiste nous propose de regarder des images provenant de son coeur, de sa mémoire, voire de ses rêves. Bridée par les limites afférentes au médium photographique conventionnel, elle lui adjoint création plastique et performance théâtrale afin de donner vie à son immense besoin d'expression et d'interrogation. Des semaines voire des mois durant, elle construit dans son studio de trois mètres sur six un univers né de son esprit, avec une minutie et une patience hors du commun, afin d'exclure toute retouche numérique ultérieure. Ces mondes ainsi matérialisés deviennent concrets; l'imagination est rendue tangible et l'image photographique de cette fiction atteste de sa réalité. biographie de JeeYoung Lee (pdf)
