INTERchange is an ongoing series focusing on artists working at the intersection of physical & virtual spaces. Through artist talks, discussions, & media we explore how new technologies inform & extend creative practice. We live in a world increasingly stratified by virtual layers of social, political, & economic culture. INTERchange hopes to understand how virtual & 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, & more recently VR. His use of unconventional timelines & narratives are often supported by sci-fi inspired themes & frameworks.
Born in Dallas, Adam Shecter currently lives & works in New York & was educated at McGill University, Montreal & the Bank Street College of Education, NY as well as the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture. He is a 2014 MacDowell Fellow in Film & Video, an alumn of the Rauchenberg & Bemis Center residency, & was selected for the Drawing Center's inaugural Open Sessions Program. He has had solo exhibitions & screenings at 11R, 1708 Gallery, St. Ann's Warehouse Experimental Puppet Lab, Bielefelder Kunstverein, Konstforeningen Aura, among others. Shecter was included in the 2012 Queens International at the Queens Museum of Art, NY.
