Color, Light, Motion Episode 22: Ivana Dama

From Zero to Infinity: Otto Piene, Zero Group, and Their Legacy on Today’s Art

IVANA DAMA was born and raised under the socialist regime in Belgrade shortly after the end of the civil war and during the time of NATO bombing. The tension between the former Yugoslavian countries was still undoubtedly present. Even though she was only a young child when the bombing began, images and sounds of the destruction still clearly permeate her mind. The memories of living in a small shelter with the sounds and vibrations of the air raid sirens have contributed to her interest in using air and sound as a primary medium. Her work, which includes audio-video installations, robotics, web projects, and music performances, explores the deep connections between sound, memory, and human experience.
Currently pursuing a graduate degree in Sculpture at Yale University, Ivana holds a previous degree in Media Arts and Digital Humanities from UCLA’s School of Arts and Architecture. Her work explores the

David Bermant Foundation Fall 2023 Updates

In its ongoing efforts to promote the David Bermant collection and his dedication to supporting creators of kinetic and technology art, the Foundation remains committed to generating interest and attention. Here are some exciting projects to anticipate in 2024 that will further highlight artists and institutions engaged with science and technology.

1. COLOR, LIGHT, MOTION: I look forward to the continuation of this bi-monthly online series curated by Victoria Vesna. This program features artists, critics, and curators relating their contemporary work to pieces in the David Bermant collection.

2. ENTANGLED ATTRACTION:  Sally Weber’s new work, exhibited at the San Francisco Exploratorium from November 2022 through April 2023, is now on schedule for 2024 at the Butler.  Visitors enjoy the swirling ceiling installation and are captivated by the chaotic pattern of the lights, which create orbiting traces suspended in the air. The accompanying Soundscape completes the immersive experience with a non-repeating, expansive orchestration.

Color, Light, Motion Episode 21: George Quasha

The Syntax of Moving Awareness

GEORGE QUASHA is a poet, artist, musician and writer working in diverse mediums to explore certain principles (e.g., axiality, ecoproprioception). For his primary medium poiesis he has invented the genre preverbs as a medium of axial language and “linguality at zero point.” He extends axiality & poiesis to art, music, performance, and conscience body practice.
His ongoing video work was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship (2006), principally for art is/music is/poetry is (Speaking Portraits), for which during the last twenty-three years he has recorded over a thousand artists, poets, and composers in eleven countries saying what art, music, or poetry is (art-is-international.org)—represented in the book art is (Speaking Portraits) (2016).
