Traversing Digital Boundaries: Inappropriate Covers

Curators Braxton Soderman and Justin Katko discuss how their art show Inappropriate Covers traverses digital boundaries. They write, "Inappropriate Covers includes multi-media works by eleven established and emerging artists, chosen for the aesthetic tensions they generate through acts of appropriation, reconfiguration, and erasure." I'd also like to thank director Jo-Ann Conklin and the rest of the staff at the David Winton Bell Gallery at Brown University for allowing me to film there. Inappropriate Covers is open until May 29.

HASTAC III. "Traversing Digital Boundaries."
This blog is part of a series of blogs leading up to the third annual HASTAC conference, which will be held April 19-21, 2009, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the theme ?Traversing Digital Boundaries.? As the theme suggests, the gathering will focus on the exploration of new territory and on work that crosses, manipulates, or simply ignores traditional boundaries. The conference program will include presentations of research, performances, technology demonstrations, posters, panel discussions, and ?virtual? participation via telepresence technology.
