New work and new show

rt_309I just finished a new piece that will be displayed at the Charity Art Gala on August 16th in NYC.

The piece is called rt_309. It’s a mashup of a memory I have of driving up route 309 on the way to Tamaqua, PA. The memory is linked to the album Is This It by The Strokes so that whenever I hear that album, I see the valley and town of Tamaqua in my head. I took a mp3 from that albumn, converted into image data, and layered it into the work. The Flatiron building pic I used is a photo I found on Flickr by Seth Gaines. He graciously allowed me to mashup his CC licensed pic.

As for the show, it should be awesome. Here’s some copy to accompany the flier:

Wednesday, August 16th, at the Xchange Loft in New York City my company is hosting its first annual Charity Art Gala.
The event will be a unique combination of contemporary art exhibition, live musical performances, and open bar cocktail event.
Proceeds from ticket sales, and 15% of all art sales will go to benefit
the Change For Kids ( organization.

York’s most under resourced public schools.
The artwork and performances will be a mixture of the accomplished and the up-and-coming.
Pass this a long to anyone who might be interested.
