Sound Art and the Transborder Digital Memorial: Luz María Sánchez’ “2487″ at the Riverside Art Museum
September 19th, 2012
In conjunction with the Riverside Art Museum’s exhibition You Are Breathing in It: Alternative Art Practices (YABII), Luz María Sánchez’ 2487, a stereo installation from an 8-channel sound piece, is currently on exhibit in the RAM Alcove Hallway. The sound art installation was curated by Carolyn Schutten, a PhD student in public history from UCR, who took part in the Riverside Art Museum Student Curatorial Council (RAMSCC) pilot program.
2487 speaks the names of the two thousand four hundred eighty seven people who died crossing the U.S./Mexico border . The work employs digital technology and sound as a means for transborder memorialization and protest, imposing the absence of those lost into the public sphere. Sánchez’ immersive sound environment remaps social history as the names of the deceased fly across the border through soundscape and digital media. Drawing from data acquired from activist websites, Sánchez created a sound map of names which she recorded digitally. Her final score, along with the database, has been exhibited widely but lives permanently on the world wide web, in commemoration and quiet protest. Sánchez’ work connects the digital and geographic landscape to the listener’s body, gaining entry through sound and transcending political and physical barriers.
Curator Carolyn Schutten will speak about 2487 and the curatorial process, along with the other RAMSCC students, during a panel discussion on September 21 at 6:00 pm. To RSVP please call 951-684-7111 or e-mail Exhibit Liaison Kathryn Poindexter at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
2487 will be on exhibit from August 9 – September 26, 2012 in the Riverside Art Museum Alcove Hall. YABII will close on September 22, 2012.

Luz María Sánchez’ 2487 was originally commissioned by Artpace San Antonio as part of the International Artist-in-Residence program New Works: 06.2, curated by Yuko Hasegawa, Chief Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, Japan.

Please join us for one of the final events of our exciting digital year.
Dr. Rita Raley, Associate Professor at UCSB will present on the possibilities for social exchange in textual media environments, focusing on hand-held devices.
Thursday, May 31
Dr. Raley’s talk will move “beyond the desktop,” with a particular focus on mobile media and projected display. In this work, she emphasizes the potentiality of these environments with respect to social exchange, publics, and being in common.
She also reflects on the disciplinary implications of textual environments that are about transient display and process rather than the artifact. Dr. Raley is Associate Professor of English, with courtesy appointments in Film and Media Studies, Comparative Literature, and Global Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her primary research interests lie at the intersection of digital media and humanist inquiry, with a particular emphasis on cultural critique, artistic practices, and language (codework, machine translation, electronic literature, and electronic English).

Technologies of Critical Writing: On the War Between Data and Images
by USC professors: Steve Anderson and Holly Willis
Despite many attempts throughout the history of cinema to derive a “language of cinema” or a “film grammar,” little has been written about the rich history of text deployed in film and video, in which onscreen typography produces an emergent, participatory aesthetic experience uniting reading and viewing. “The Letter and the Line: Text in Film and Video” assesses key examples of this history. Steve Anderson of USC will present his recent work in the realm of digital humanities authoring and platform development, focusing on an interactive critical essay developed through a process of “researching in public” and utilizing the newly developed, rich-media electronic authoring platform, Scalar. This hybrid, text/media essay is being created in parallel with an author- generated archive of video clips and text commentaries that are posted to the online forum and fair use advocacy site, Critical Commons.
