Turbulence Headed this Way

by Noah Wardrip-Fruin · , 12:10 am

There’s much news from Turbulence these days. First, they’re sponsoring (with the Andy Warhol Foundation) another juried international net art competition (deadline March 31). They’re also sponsoring (with Emerson College) a lecture series this spring titled “Floating Points 2: Networked Art In Public Space.” The speakers include (01.26.05) Anne Galloway; (02.23.05) Andy Deck and Ricardo Miranda Zuniga; (03.30.05) Jeff Knowlton, Naomi Spellman, and Pete Gomes; and (04.27.05) Elizabeth Goodman, Teri Rueb, Julian Bleecker and Andrew Shoben/Greyworld. And the events don’t stop there — with Art Interactive they’re firing up a Boston edition of The Upgrade! Yael Kanarek, Teri Rueb, Larissa Harris, and kanarinka are already scheduled for the Spring. Finally, Turbulence’s latest artist studio has launched, featuring hypnotic “Flash Polaroids” by Brian Kim Stefans.
