Uncontrollable Semantics, Hypnotizing Mascots, Between Treacherous Objects, This is How You Will Die, curious titles for odd digital magic works/poetics. Jason Nelson, Net Artist and Digital Arts Lecturer at Griffith University in Australia, will be showcasing his strange net artworks/new media poetics, as well as talking about the future of new media art on the web on the Maryland stop of his US art talk tour. Explore some of his artworks at: www.secrettechnology.com and then come along to the show.
Currently Jason professes Interactive Media at Australia’s Queensland College of Art, Griffith University. Aside from coaxing his students into breaking, playing and morphing their creativity with all manner of technologies, he exhibits widely in galleries and journals, with work featured around the globe at FILE, ACM, LEA, ISEA, SIGGRAPH, ELO and dozens of other acronyms. There are awards to list (Paris Biennale Media Poetry Prize), organizational boards he frequents (Australia Council Literature Board and the Electronic Literature Organization), and numerous other accolades (Webby Award), but in the web based realm where his work resides, Jason is most proud of the millions of visitors his artwork/digital poetry portal secrettechnology.com attracts each year.
