Douglas Repetto: Action at a Distance & Everything All at Once

Feb 28 - May 17 2008

UB Art Gallery

Douglas Repetto’s two installations tailored specifically for the UB Art Gallery revel in madcap interactivity and DIY technologies. action at a distance is a tangle of motors and pulleys, zigzags of rope, an otter theater, jangling bells, fireflies, switches, breath activators, and rough steel. everything, all at once is a sudden condensation, a dense net of hundreds of bells and mirrors, motors, lights, and vibrations that envelops the viewer.

Douglas Repetto is an artist and teacher whose research interests encompass electronic software for music composition, biologically-based art, and people doing strange things with electricity. Repetto is the founder of a number of art/community-oriented groups including dorkbot: people doing strange things with electricity, ArtBots: The Robot Talent Show, organism: making art with living systems, and the music-dsp mailing list and website. Repetto is Director of Research at the Columbia University Computer Music Center and lives in New York City.
