Charles Lindsay: CARBON
presented by Santa Fe Art Institute, ecoartspace & Institute of American Indian Arts
After a decade of dedicating his work to exploring CARBON, a camera-less photographic process of his own invention, New York artist Charles Lindsay is taking on his most ambitious installation yet. This video created in collaboration with xRez Studio’s Eric Hansen includes high definition visual content generated from never before seen color CARBON scans, morphed into fantastic hyper-dimensional imagery with original sound. Viewers look on from a darkened body-less space in the digital dome where they are removed from their everyday surroundings and asked to contemplate an alternate world.

Michael Schippling: We Are Experiencing Some Turbulence
presented by Axle Contemporary
We Are Experiencing Some Turbulence is a site-specific installation by Santa Fe bricoleur Michael Schippling in the Axle Contemporary mobile gallery. It comprises a truck full of small objects which move in what might, or might not, be random patterns. Proximity sensors allow the viewer to exercise some control over the motion so it becomes a meditation on our ability to distinguish the random from the regular.

Kaihaukai: An Indigenous Food Exchange
Simon Kaan and Ron Bull (jnr) from New Zealand are collaborating with the College of Contemporary Native Arts at IAIA to workshop and produce a multimedia interactive installation. The work will explore ideas around communicating and sharing indigenous knowledge around our foods through online media. What does it mean to exchange these ideas and foods without physical presence and how are meanings fashioned and imbued during this process?
Participants are able to join in the event on the day and sample traditional foods as part of the installation.

Jason Baerg: There Was No End
presented by Institute of American Indian Arts
Cree Métis Artist Jason Baerg utilizes significant symbolic Indigenous numeric values to inform narrative, color and repetition. There Was No End is a unique interactive work that investigates global social metaphors with interest to activate collective observation and response. The 360° spherical display of abstracted symbols of the Sun the Moon and the Earth appear in sequences of 13 to reference many Indigenous communities’ 13-moon calendar. There Was No End utilizes ground-breaking research and development in the integration sensors and interactivity presented in the world’s first fully articulated digital dome.

Dust in the Machine
presented by the Center for Contemporary Arts
The twentieth century spawned the industrialization of the American West. With its suburban developments, water diversion projects, oil and natural gas rigs, power plants, atomic laboratories, military testing grounds and sophisticated roadways, the western states have become a landscape of mechanization. This machine is at once necessary and destructive, sophisticated and aging, natural and artificial; it is the lifeblood and the nemesis, the crux of modern civilization. As contemporary society grows increasingly dependent on mechanized environments, its collapse is also imminent. Dust in the Machine is a group exhibition that provides a spectrum of interpretations of the industrialized West, as well as its glories and failures.

Reception: Tuesday, September 25, 1-5pm
presented by the Marion Center for Photographic Arts
Photographers working in the New Mexico “wilderness” have tremendous respect for the various machines they employ to make images. Many are manipulating recent innovations in digital technology and others, equally versed in their artistic practice, have chosen to apply their knowledge to resurrecting 19th century photographic processes (once the cutting edge of scientific exploration) to create 21st century images not possible in the past. Origins is an exhibition of images and cameras that examine the historic intersections between art and science.
