May 1st 2003:Lev Manovich comes to Denmark

[May 1st 2003]
Lev Manovich

Lev Manovich comes to Danmark

Russian born Lev Manovich is one of the most respected theoreticians in the field of digital aesthetic today, and unavoidable for anyone interested in digital art. Manovich’s principle work is his Language of New Media (2001), an unusually well researched and thought through presentation of the so-called ‘new media’: the principals of digitalisation and its roots, as well as its aesthetic and cultural consequences.
Manovich is also an active artist, and has since last year toured Europe with his installation Soft Cinema. Soft Cinema is a kind of self-propelled multi-media machine that combines images, music and narrative voices in a system of rules that Manovich has programmed. Soft Cinema has been shown at ZKM (Zentrum für Kunst und Medienteknologie) in Karlsruhe, Transmediale 03 in Berlin and DEAF 03 (Dutch Electronic Art Festival) in Rotterdam, to name but a few. Manovich is a researcher at the University of California, San Diego, where he probably isn’t seen very often if you consider how extensive his tour of lectures has been this year. The tour will make stops in Copenhagen and Århus. By Thomas Petersen and Kristine Ploug.
