Concurrent exhibitions by three Hamiltonian Fellows, Ryan Hoover, Jessica van Brakle and Lina Vargas De La Hoz at Hamiltonian on view through June 18th, 2011.
Fusing Mid-Century modernist furniture with 1960's mainframe computers, Ryan Hoover presents a showroom of large, physical objects that make tangible the networks to which he is tied. Inside his sleek yet awkward furnishings, Hoover implements Arduino micro-controllers that process data pulled from his email accounts, social networking sites and geolocation sharing sites. The data displayed on the sculpture is updated every few minutes based on Hoover's activity within his networks. Ryan Hoover is at once furniture designer and computer engineer, creating outmoded yet current appliances that offer information about him, and the many arteries to which he is connected.
