Slow Cyborg – Jim Jeffers
Slow Cyborg is an interactive art project in dialogue with technology, specifically, the now ubiquitous camera-equipped smartphone. Slow Cyborg uses a series of QR (Quick Response) codes to instruct participants, encouraging them to 'decode' the instructions and then upload their responses.

You can read Jim's article about the Slow Cyborg project for free here.

If you'd like to get involved in the Slow Cyborg project, visit Jim's website to find out how.

WINTER 2011 HOTEL: A ROOM TO VIEW
Thursday, February 10th, 2011, 12-8pm
Hilton Hotel New York
1335 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10019
v1b3 is presenting media works by the following artists that in the broadest terms possible explore the context of the hotel room as a modular space of transient occupation. Artists presenting work include:
Olga Ast, Julia Druk & Alex Reid – Under the Bed
Annette Barbier – Stages
Christopher Cassidy – Globequilting
Elizabeth Demaray– Tell Me TV
Greg Garvey – PULL FOR FIRE (an 'hommage' to Jim Dine)
David Gordon – Toilet Art
Jim Jeffers Crude: Black Gold, Texas Tea, and Me
Mary Agnes Krell – Nothing that is not there

v1b3 is an international curatorial project that aims to present video art that responds to the conditions of site specificity and a public viewer-ship. Urban planners and architects shape cities by means of infrastructure, zoning and buildings. However, other modes of intervention exist capable of influencing the development of city-space. v1b3 brings attention to communicative media interventions to transform public spaces.

February 1st- 7th, 2011 (extended until the 14th)
Jim Jeffers' Fortress of Multitude: project 52 for 2010—and other Fantabiographies
Live Performance / Opening 7pm to 10pm, Friday, February 4th, 2011
at
MEME Gallery
55 Norfolk Street Cambridge, MA 02139
memegallery.com
The first installation of all 52 videos of project 52 for 2010 by artist Jim Jeffers, Jim Jeffers’ Fortress of Multitude: project 52 for 2010—and other Fantabiographies represents the sum of one performance / video per week for the 52 weeks of 2010. The exhibition will display all 52 videos playing on 13 channels on various devices (four videos per device). The video / performances explore a personal relationship with culture through a psychoactive lens, reflecting on current events global and personal, complex and childlike. Driven outer liminal osmotic absorption of the essential thoughts and actions of the artist’s year is the expected experience. During the exhibition the video / performance pieces will be singularly available for viewing on the internet at http://project5242010.Fantabiography.com.

In addition the artist will be performing a selection of live pieces in response to the installation and audience.

ACTION!
is a Chicago Art Department exhibition themed around the idea of the Hollywood summer blockbuster movie. Since the release of Jaws in 1977, the summer movie season has, for better or for worse, become characterized by over the top, big budget, action, special-effects laden movies that we now know as “the summer blockbuster”. The art in this exhibition looks at the summer movie as cultural phenomena and symbol, as nostalgia and memory, and yes even simple, mindless fun.

Current confirmed artists include:

Ryan Roberts
Christophe Roberts
Clare Rosean
Nat Soti
Mike Nourse
Jim Jeffers
Ali Seradge
Sarah and Joseph Belknap
Kayce Bayer and Chris Lin
Kerry Flaherty
