August 5 – September 2, 2010 Opening Reception: August 5, 6 – 8pm
The Project Room for New Media at Chelsea Art Museum, Home of the Miotte Foundation, is pleased to announce an exhibition of experimental geography created by Jack Toolin/C5. Perfect View is part of the C5 Landscape Initiative, a suite of four projects that address the perception of landscape in light of GPS technology. The exhibition will feature six large-scale triptychs, video documentation, expedition artifacts, and the interactive C5 GPS Media Player.
Perfect View exposes sublime landscapes across the United States creating connections between diverse geographical regions and cultures through the use of new media technology, known as ‘geocaching’.
Jack Toolin is an artist whose work spans multiple forms of new media. He has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2002 Whitney Biennial); San Francisco Camerawork; The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and Foxy Production, New York City.
