This show in Michigan was brought to my attention by a friend who is very keen at making connections. The correlation of the mission of QUANTIFIED SELF and that of STASH works on several levels, particularly when they speak of collecting "self-defining artifacts" and how we communicate information about ourselves. I love how this broadens the meaning and context of STASH. Wish I could make a trip out to Ann Arbor to see it!
Click here and here to see the progress of STASH. Will be coming to a tree in Union Square by mid September.
QUANTIFIED SELFAugust 30 - October 7
Opening Reception: Friday, August 31 from 6-9 p.m.
Curated by Colin Raymond and Kyle Kramer
Gallery Project presents Quantified Self; a multimedia exhibit in which over 30 local, regional, and national artists examine how individuals collect and often project information about themselves and others in the digital world.
Artists examine the quantified self from two unique perspectives: one, how information about individuals is collected, stored, processed, and used by these individuals and communicated to others; and two how entities collect information about individuals and groups for commercial and other purposes. Examples are self-projections in cyber space, self-monitoring of health and other behaviors, obsessive collecting of self-defining artifacts, and visualizing personal and group data.
