On Thursday, May 27, Location One presents its third annual artist-in-residence group exhibition. Eight works ranging from video, to sculpture, to robotic structures, to interactive installations were developed by emerging international artists during their stay. Featured in the main gallery, the show will be open to the public through Wednesday, June 30th, 2004 and will be streamed live on

Vincent Lamouroux (France)
A site-specific wall drawing that consists of simple sets of words culled by the artist from Joseph Lanza’s writings “Gravity” as he investigates roller coaster structures as a social and cultural phenomenon in the US.

Alexandra do Carmo (Portugal)
In the installation “50 Richards” the artist explores issues of surveillance and voyeurism. The visitor is invited to sit at a microscope to view a continuous recording of the artist’s studio practice. Music inspired by the video and composed by Paul de Jong pours in from the ceiling.

Miguel Soares (Portugal)
H2O is a 3d animation about marine trash and the often absurd reactions of maritime flora and fauna to these “alien visitors”.

Federico Muelas (Spain)
What do Apples Sound Like? An interactive audio visual environment where the artist questions human perception by translating into sound the spatial values of the 365 vertices on an apple – symbol of wholeness and forbidden knowledge.

Hsiao Sheng Chien (Taiwan)
Watch is an installation with video robot and sensor that features an eye. The robot perceives the presence of the visitor and begins interacting with him, drawing him in, watching him and then pushing him away.

Koki Tanaka (Japan)
Things Happen Again presents a humorous reflection on the question of how we perceive the world by filming the simple and repetitive motion of rolls of tape that glide inside the frame.

Mark Themann (Germany/Australia)
Go Into This Space presents an evocative single screen DVD work, a silent film that consists of phasing texts, interrupted by flashing color fields, and utilizing structures of invocation and evocation.Location One is a not-for-profit organization devoted to the convergence between visual, performing and digital arts in a time of rapidly changing technology.
Location One’s Residency Program is a central part of its activities. It encourages collaboration by inviting artists from all over the world and different media to experiment with advanced technological tools and delivery systems, and to develop new work.
