bitforms gallery nyc

Opening Reception: Thursday, June 28, 2012, 6:00 - 8:30 PM
Summer Gallery Hours: Monday - Friday, 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM
bitforms gallery is pleased to announce a summer group exhibition that features the work of seven artists: Marco Brambilla, Daniel Canogar, Yael Kanarek, Tim Knowles, Mark Napier, Casey Reas, and Marina Zurkow. Borrowing its title from World on a Wire, Rainer Fassbinder's 1973 sci-fi film set in a cybernetics and futurology lab, the exhibition explores behavioral complexity, madness and simulation.
Three projects in the exhibition are New York debuts: Mark Napier's net.flag: ten years of flags, comprised of nearly 23,000 flags created by visitors to the net.flag website; Marina Zurkow's The Thirsty Bird, an animation informed by a residency in Houston; and Marco Brambilla's RPM, a psychological video portrait of a Formula One driver's point-of-view.
