MCD Artist Walk-Through: Proxistant Vision
November 19 @ 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Join Bull.Miletic and guest curator Carol Covington for an opening day walk-through of MCD’s upcoming exhibition, Bull.Miletic: Proxistant Vision, the culmination of an innovative, art and technology research project that explores the impact of new aerial imaging technologies and their influence and power in everyday life.
This seven-year endeavor by artist duo Synne Bull and Dragan Miletic identified the emergence of a new, visual paradigm for which they invented the descriptive words: proxistance (noun) and proxistant (adjective). Most prominently exemplified by Google Earth’s “digital ride” from a global perspective to street level view, a proxistant vision names this combination of proximity and distance in a single, moving capture.
Program attendees and panelists will move through the exhibition space in conversation about the three robotic video installations: Ferriscope, Venetie 11111100110, and Zoom Blue Dot. Each artwork has its own focus, but all trace the multiple paths and genealogies of the “proxistant” (overview to detail) effect.
$12 General Admission, $10 Students/Seniors, MCD Members FREE
Now based in Oslo, Bull.Miletic considers San Francisco their true artistic “home base” in the United States. They were among the first graduates of the MFA New Genres department at the San Francisco Art Institute, were artists in residence at Headlands Center for the Arts, and have been honored to work with Anglim/Trimble Gallery since 2005.
Their Proxistant Vision research project was developed during Synne Tollerud Bull’s Ph.D. Fellowship at the Faculty of Humanities, University of Oslo; and Dragan Miletic’s Ph.D. Fellowship at the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, including an Artists in Residence Program at the University of Chicago (Ferriscope) and UC Berkeley’s inaugural Arts + Science Residency (Zoom Blue Dot).
