Artbit feat. "Techspressionist Collab #2: A Calling For Utopia"
Moderator: Davonte Bradley This Salon was dedicated to the opening reception for the exhibition "Techspressionist Collab #2: A Calling For Utopia" - View the show online at https://techspressionism.com/collab-2/  ARTIST PAIRINGS Malavika Mandal Andrew x Ryan Henderson Negin Ehtesabian x Brandon Gellis Darcy Gerbarg x Michael Pointer Diane Marsella x Frédéric Pons Tommy Mintz x Deann Stein Hasinoff Cee Moses x Michael Price Michael Pointer x Caro Ramonde   Curation: Davonte Bradley Installation: Bradley Gellis   There seems to always be so much duress in the world. To cope, heal, and respond artists often seek to create romantic notions of reality – fantasies and wishes of utopia. The ability for artists to speak to others across physical and virtual space encourages new opportunities for dynamic and meaningful collaborations and explorations. The artwork presented in this exhibition serendipitously comes together as a series of idealized realities. Our Techspressionist artists harness mixed media and digital art to address concerns of ecology and conservation; others have developed rich-photographic compilations considering re-envisioned worlds; and some explore the coexistence of the digital and natural worlds. We are presenting work that questions social, political, and cultural norms through international, collaborative, and hopeful eyes. We are grateful and proud that you are here to join us today. – Bradley Gellis

EP7: Artbit feat. Techspressionist: Davonte Bradley interviewed by Colin Goldberg
Thursday, February 11, 2021: "There are a few main things that inspire my art. The pain and trauma of my past, curiosity in the present, and hope for the future. There’s just as much fun in my work as there is some amount of melancholy. And I think there's beauty in that. I've been creating art all of my life and have been creating digitally for about half of that time. I never attended a traditional art school and I honestly never saw myself becoming a full-time artist. It wasn't until the pandemic struck and rocked the world that I decided that I needed to stop wasting time and pursue what had been in my heart all this time." - Davonte Bradley I met Davo on Twitter and he introduced me Techspressionism movement, in this eposide, Davo shares his thoughts and technics with Colin Goldberg.

Artbit feat. Techspressionist: Colin Goldberg interviewed by Roz Dimon Colin Goldberg’s artwork explores the intersection of technology and Expressionism. The artist coined the term Techspressionism as the title of a 2011 solo exhibition in Southampton. Techspressionism was first described as a movement in WIRED in 2014, and it has since grown into an international community of artists working with technology from over 30 nations around the world. More information on Techspressionism is available online at https://techspressionism.com/ Goldberg lives and works on the North Shore of Long Island and is a recipient of grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the New York State Council on the Arts. His paintings reside in the permanent collections of the Islip Art Museum, Stony Brook Medicine, and the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center. You can view the artist’s work online at https://www.goldberg.art/ In this video, Goldberg is interviewed by Roz Dimon where he speaks about his art, its influences and the way Techspressionism relates to the history and the future of art. My name is Giovanna Sun, in this Artbit eposide, Techspressionist Colin Goldberg interviewed by Roz Dimon shares his story of his artist journey.

EP4: Artbit feat. Techspressionist - Tommy Mintz
Artbit feat. Techspressionist - Tommy Mintz Moderator: Davo Bradley with Colin Goldberg and Techspressionists Artbit podcast produced by Giovanna Sun In this episode, NYC-based photographer and CUNY Assistant professor Tommy Mintz shares his algorithmically crafted images. The Automated Digital Photo Collage (ADPC) is an algorithm for creating artwork. ADPC runs on a Raspberry Pi computer or Mac and a variety of cameras and screens or projectors. The software is a Python program, and it is freely available on github. June 17, 2021 - Tommy Mintz grew up in NYC's West Village in the 1980s and 90s. Tommy now lives in Chelsea with his wife, kids and cats and is currently an Assistant Professor of Photography at CUNY Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn. He earned an MFA from Queens College in 2005 and a BA from Sarah Lawrence College in 1999. He has exhibited in galleries locally, nationally and internationally. Mintz is an urbanist of the Jane Jacobs school of thought. Through his work, he seeks to engage in a conversation about how Jacobs’ ideas, of what makes a vibrant urban landscape, are important to consider in this moment of large-scale neighborhood change, currently most visible in massive construction projects and new sidewalk dining spaces.  One of the unique aspects of Mintz’s photographic work revolves around his creation, known as The Automated Digital Photo Collage. The ADPC is an algorithm for creating a time-lapse collage. It compares a sequence of photographs, pixel by pixel, for areas of change. Pixel areas that are detected as different are layered on top in the image. Layering areas of its own choosing, the ADPC creates a decidedly nonhuman view, which intrigues with its logic and strange algorithmic humor. The ADPC echoes our human struggle to remember during this moment in the inception of digital augmentation. The familiar gaps parallel our own fragmented perceptions. Conceptualized in 2004, as a public installation in a bus shelter, the ADPC is written in the Python programming language and was first exhibited at the Hudson Guild gallery in 2013 where it ran on Raspberry Pi computers and standard webcams, generating low resolution, live, interactive collages of gallery visitors.

EP3: Artbit feat. Techspressionist - Andrea Bonaceto
Hosted by Davo Bradley with Colin Goldberg and techspressionists My name is Giovanna. I am the producer of Artbit. In this episode, our Techspressionist salon virtual meeting, we have a conversation bi-weekly. Techspressionism is introduced as a new art-historical term to describe fine artists using digital technology to convey subjective, emotional content. A core group of artists have begun working together to develop momentum for the adoption of the term Techspressionism through the planning of an international juried exhibition to be followed by a physical exhibition in 2022. We meet biweekly at our Techspressionist Salon artist meetups on Zoom to discuss art and technology. Andrea Bonaceto shares his AI experience with Sophie robot and showcases his gallery on Niftygateway. Andrea just closed the auction at 79000. He also answered questions about how an artist can collaborate with artificial intelligence.
