Center for Mixed Connections by Ingrid Burrington
Center for Mixed Connections, 2011, by Ingrid Burrington

First I was Afraid… artist, Ingrid Burrington will discuss how she investigates areas of technology, data infrastructure, and information networks in New York City, literally as a complex system of fiber-optics and cables and metaphorically as depicted in her hand-drawn maps. Burrington will share her fieldwork into tracking and analyzing NYC’s sprawling internet infrastructure, drawing a connection between the anxiety we have with being watched and her map of the city’s surveillance cameras.

Ingrid Burrington is the author of Networks of New York, an illustrated field guide to urban internet infrastructure, and has previously written for The Atlantic, The Nation, The Verge, and other outlets. Her work has previously been supported by Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, the Center for Land Use Interpretation, and Rhizome. She also runs the Data and Society speculative fiction reading group. She is a frequent public speaker, and has given talks at FutureEverything, Eyeo, Dconstruct, Theorizing the Web, and the Copenhagen Documentary Festival. Burrington is a member of Deep Lab, a collective of researchers, artists, writers, engineers, and cultural producers that explores topics of control, power, and politics as they pertain to technology and society.

The stuff dreams are made of, 2016, by Nicole Maloof; Dice, 2016, by Sandra Erbacher

Fear, anxiety, and uncertainty characterize much of the nature of our modern world and inform the works of the present exhibition, First I Was Afraid… The artists will talk about how each creates work based on their individual interpretation, experience, and emotional reaction to those negative aspects of reality. They will discuss how despite the commonalities in the underlying themes of their work, each focuses on a particular source or manifestation of those emotions and employs differing media to express their ideas.

Molly Dilworth is a Brooklyn based artist who views creative practice as a form of research and problem solving. She has worked with green building organizations, climate change activists, arts organizations and government agencies to make public art that addresses our relationship to history, nature and technology. She has created outdoor site-specific paintings in New York City and exhibited across the United States. Dilworth was recently awarded the Tulsa Artist fellowship and is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, a New York Foundation for the Arts Painting Fellowship, a Vermont Studio Center Fellowship and a Van Lier Fellow in the Art & Law Residency Program. Her work has been exhibited at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale, Pomona College Museum of Art, Boston Center for the Arts, and Holon Institute of Technology, Israel.
