St. Francis College Gallery

180 Remsen Street | Brooklyn, New York 11201

Artists responsible for three of the long-term installations at Wave Farm in New York’s Upper Hudson Valley will present and discuss their projects in conjunction with Creative Tech Week.

Zach Poff’s Pond Station (2015) detects vibrations of light and underwater sound, which are then broadcast to the Study Center through a live radio link and available online at wavefarm.org/listen.

Ian Vanek will speak to Japanther’s Remote Audio Outpost (2012), a solar-powered recording both, outfitted with a rotary phone for both recording and transmission. Installed in one of the most remote corners of the Wave Farm property Remote Audio Outpost is a place for introspection and confession.

Heidi Neilson will discuss Outernet Library Branch—Wave Farm (2016). Envisioned as an open, worldwide, collaborative platform outside the Internet, the Outernet is an expanding library collection of data files broadcast from satellites in space. Outernet Library Branch—Wave Farm serves as a data transmission receiving station where collected files are stored and can be accessed by library patrons through wireless devices.
