Terminal Velocity: Artist, Brandon Morse Brings Innovative Projections to Maryland Art Place This September

This event occurred in the past.
New-media artist, Brandon Morse, writes software to simulate and emulate systems in flux. Scenes of tumult, chaos and entropy are portrayed through these digital simulations presenting to the viewer video and video-installation works that draw parallels between chaotic natural phenomena and the human condition. The pieces in the exhibition titled, Terminal Velocity, will run as software in the gallery and as such will continually evolve and self-generate on the fly during the course of the exhibition; never repeating or looking the same twice. Morse states, “To start, my interests lately have tended towards the need to create software-based generative video works that leverage what the computer does well, namely following instructions, and making decisions based on those instructions en masse to create video works that are optically charged in a way that lends them a sense of sculptural physicality. I'm interested in what is possible in the realm of making video that feels tactile and which evokes in the viewer the sense that what they are looking at is not simply pixels on a screen, rather it is a complex system at work which feels organic and physical. Something, that even though it is created entirely through code and mathematics makes the viewer feel as if they are interfacing with something alive, organic, and unpredictable”. The opening reception will be held Thursday, September 10 at 6pm in the MAP gallery located at 218 West Saratoga Street, Baltimore, MD 21201 (between Park & Howard Streets) within the Bromo Arts and Entertainment District. Brandon Morse will be providing a brief Artist Talk that same evening at 6:50 pm. The exhibition will run through October 17, 2015. MAP is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 12 – 4pm or by appointment.
