I've just spent the last 4 days upgrading my homepage: G.H. Hovagimyan homepage updated April 1, 2006, http://nujus.net/gh

People have been asking me to put up my HD morphs online. I've resisted doing that because they are high definition video and should be seen in person. They are at Sara Tecchia's gallery in New York, 529 West 20th Street. http://saratecchia.com/artists/gh_hovagimyan/


Nerve Theory's H5N1 Series

categories: |



Kunstradio, a radio art program of the ORF, Austria's national broadcaster, is featuring a weekly series of radio miniatures by Nerve Theory throughout 2006.

The series is called "H5N1: there is no privacy at the speed of light." Nerve Theory is the corporate identity of Bernhard Loibner and Tom Sherman.

Nerve Theory's latest work focuses on the bird flu virus, H5N1, and the hysteria surrounding the inevitable global influenza pandemic. Loibner and Sherman use the idea of the evolving, mutating H5N1 virus as a launching pad for a series of scary, strangely funny statements about the world we live in. Imagine a world where artists write and deliver the news. Loibner and Sherman are not scientists, but they are experts in observing and describing media viruses and a delivering broad spectrum of living, evolving ideas.
