Internet of my dreams @ Transfer Gallery, Brooklyn, New York
through March 29, 2014
Saturday, March 8 7 â€“ 11PM
Internet of my dreams is an exhibition that deals in collapsed dichotomies: digital and physical, conscious and unconscious. It is an exhibition of paintings rooted in digital wanderlust, of movement dreamed and quantified.
Using an EEG neuroheadset, Antonellis has produced a new series of digital images based on brainwave recordings of spatial movements experienced within a dream. These source images â€” the result of data captured and communicated by a brainâ€“computer interface â€” serve as the basis for a series of paintings and moving images.
Internet of my dreams is Anthony Antonellisâ€™ first solo exhibition in the United States. This new body of work locates Antonellisâ€™ practice squarely within the intersection of ubiquitous data and the ineffably human.
ANTHONY ANTONELLIS (b. 1981, Massachusetts) is a visual artist who is based on the internet in New York. He is graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design, BFA in painting, and Bauhaus University, MFA in new artistic strategies. He is the creator of netartnet.net, an online-gallery listing and directory.
Antonellisâ€™ work has been exhibited internationally at venues including The Photographers' Gallery London, the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, Eyebeam, New York, as well as at art fairs NADA and Untitled Miami Beach. He has been featured in The Creators Project, BLOUIN ARTINFO, and Interview Magazine as well as news outlets such as Wired, CNET, Discovery, The Atlantic, and BBC World Service.
