Irish-born, Dublin-based media artist John Gerrard presents his recent work in real-time 3-D. His digital landscapes are recognizable—pig farm, oil derrick, grain silo, and dust storm. Meanwhile the processes and implications are ambiguous. As day passes into night, actions occur, but a particular moment remains frozen in time. His work lies somewhere between documentary and fiction, consisting of images that are constantly developing and regenerating, but seem eternal. The underlying tension comes from Gerrard’s moral discomfort with humankind’s abuse of the environment. Organized in conjunction with Independent Media Arts Preservation (IMAP) and the International Network for the Conservation of Contemporary Art (INCCA), the program concludes with a conversation about media conservation featuring the artist, Associate Curator Barbara London, and Media Conservator Glenn Wharton.
