Data Dynamics
opening 3/22/01


Data Dynamics is an exhibition of Internet art that focuses on a prominent issue in this new medium: the search for visual models that represent a continuously changing flow of data and information. These models offer navigational possibilities for experiencing visual and textual information. The Internet art projects included in Data Dynamics are exhibited both as installations in the Museum and in the Whitney's online gallery. Each of the works focuses on different dynamics of data, whether in the context of mapping language, stories, memories, or traffic in physical and virtual spaces.

Data Dynamics includes five net art projects by Marek Walczak and Martin Wattenberg, Mark Napier, Maciej Wisniewski, Beth Stryker and Sawad Brooks, and Adrianne Wortzel.

Data Dynamics is sponsored by
France Telecom North America.

Additional support has been provided by The Rockefeller Foundation.

Nothing since the invention of photography has had a greater impact on artistic practice than the emergence of digital technologies. BitStreams is a provocative and stimulating presentation of contemporary art that harnesses digital media to achieve new dimensions of artistic expression through the transformation of images, space, data, and sound. The exhibition also illuminates the fascinating crossovers among media, as photography, film, video, installation, sculpture, and sound develop closer connections through their common use of digital software. Among the forty-nine artists included are: Jeremy Blake, Leah Gilliam, LOT/EK, Paul D. Miller (DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid), Jim O'Rourke, Paul Pfeiffer, Marina Rosenfeld, Elliott Sharp, Diana Thater, and Pamela Z.

In conjunction with BitStreams, Performance on 42nd presents Pulse, a series of four events featuring live performances intertwined with digital media.

BitStreams will include an array of lectures, artists' talks and panel discussions.

BitStreams is sponsored by Philip Morris Companies Inc.

Additional support has been provided by the Whitney Contemporaries of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National Committee of the Whitney Museum of American Art, Christopher Vroom and Illya Szilak, Nettmedia, Zurich Capital Markets, and Instinet Corporation.
