INTERchange is an ongoing series focusing on artists working at the intersection of physical and virtual spaces. Through artist talks, discussions, and media we explore how new technologies inform and extend creative practice. We live in a world increasingly stratified by virtual layers of social, political, and economic culture. INTERchange hopes to understand how virtual and physical spaces are synthesized into new cultural forms.
Adam Shecter will be discussing the inspiration for his Virtual Reality animated film “Satellites,” as well as offer VR viewings of the work in progress after the talk.
Adam Shecter’s work has explored time-based forms using video, animation, GIFs, and more recently VR. His use of unconventional timelines and narratives are often supported by sci-fi inspired themes and frameworks.
Born in Dallas, Adam Shecter currently lives and works in New York and was educated at McGill University, Montreal and the Bank Street College of Education, NY as well as the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He is a 2014 MacDowell Fellow in Film and Video, an alumn of the Rauchenberg and Bemis Center residency, and was selected for the Drawing Center’s inaugural Open Sessions Program. He has had solo exhibitions and screenings at 11R, 1708 Gallery, St. Ann’s Warehouse Experimental Puppet Lab, Bielefelder Kunstverein, Konstforeningen Aura, among others.
