Camille Utterback, 2009 MacArthur Fellow

Camille Utterback, one of the artists that will be showcased in GAFFTA’s inaugural show “OPEN”, was recently announced a recipient of the MacArthur Genius Grant.

Camille Utterback’s distinctive work showcases the rich potential of technology to create immersive environments; her installations combine interactivity with a visual experience that transforms the surrounding space. Most often her work showcases the audience’s interaction, as layers of information react to people’s movements and engages them in the creation of the imagery of her pieces.

Her work has been exhibited at galleries, festivals, and museums internationally including The New Museum of Contemporary Art, The American Museum of the Moving Image, New York; The NTT InterCommunication Center, Tokyo; The Seoul Metropolitan Museum of Art; The Netherlands Institute for Media Art; The Taipei Museum of Contemporary Art; The Center for Contemporary Art, Kiev, Ukraine; and the Ars Electronica Center, Austria. Utterback’s work is in private and public collections including The La Caixa Foundation in Barcelona, Spain.

Camille Utterback’s interactive video piece “Liquid Time” will be showcased at GAFFTA on October 1st. It will be the first featured work in the Tendorama Window Gallery Project, a series of rotating bi-monthly installations in the gallery’s prominent 15’ x 8’ front display windows facing Taylor Street. Utterback’s exploration is a series of pieces filmed in the surrounding neighborhood and projected back in the gallery window where the imagery of time, as well as space, is disrupted by the motions of passer-bys. This vibrant, site-specific window installation will feature video filmed in locations throughout the Tenderloin and will be viewable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by residents and visitors of the Tenderloin.
