 Exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York

Seeing Double: Emulation in Theory and Practice will be held from March 19 to May 16 at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. The final segment of the variable media partnership uniting the Foundation and the museum, this exhibition spotlights digital works that have undergone a computer process called "emulation." This process entails running original computer codes on computers from newer generations developed after the codes themselves. Visitors will see double by viewing both an original version and an emulated version. Among the works featured are Mary Flannagan's [phage] (2002), John F. Simon Jr.'s Color Panel (1998), Nam June Paik's TV Crown (1965), Grahame Weinbren and Roberta Friedman's Erl King (1982-1985), and Jodi's Jet Set Willy Variations (2002).

Also note that on May 8, the Guggenheim will hold a one-day colloquium on issues related to preserving such works. [Read the press release...]


 The Daniel Langlois Foundation now hosts the OLATS Web site

We're pleased to announce that OLATS (Observatoire Leonardo des arts et des technosciences) has recently finished transferring its Web site to the Foundation's servers. For the Foundation, whose Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D) documents the history and artistic practices at the crossroads of art, science and technology, this alliance with OLATS brings together an outstanding documentary collection under the same "virtual" roof. Directed by Roger Malina and Annick Bureaud, the site is part of the Leonardo "galaxy," which, for 30 years now, has been devoted to critical thinking and discussions about art, technology and science. The OLATS site has been added to the "circle" of Web sites hosted by the Foundation. [More...]
