PodART was inspired by the introduction of the latest iPod, which plays video. In recent years, video art has been growing in popularity. Apple’s latest iPod has garnered this art form even more portability.
MTAA is an art duo working on and off-line and are known for their conceptual and often humorous art projects. Past exhibitions have been at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, The Getty Research Institute, and Postmasters gallery.
Based in San Francisco, Marisa Olson’s work has been commissioned by the Whitney Museum of American Art and she has most recently performed or exhibited at the New Museum for Contemporary Art, the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive, Side Cinema-Newcastle, New Langton Arts, Southern Exposure, Foxy Productions, Debs & Co, Galapagos, Flux Factory, 667 Shotwell, Pond, the international Futuresonic, Electrofringe, Cinemascope-London, Machinista, Scope, and VIPER festivals, and elsewhere. She has held residencies and fellowships at Goldsmiths, the New School, Northwestern University, the Technical University-Dresden, and the Banff Centre for the Arts.
Jeff Wyckoff is an artist and scientist whose video work includes intravital imaging, cancer research and often music. Mr. Wyckoff has an upcoming lecture at MIT in February and exhibitions in Belgrade, Antwerp, and is currently working with the Art and Genome Center in Amsterdam.
Each video object is a limited edition and is sold in iPod format with the player.
