We are excited to announce our latest sponsorship with the Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI) for the exhibition of "My Veins Are the Wires, My Body Is Your Keyboard," a survey of the pioneering net-artist and sculptor Auriea Harvey! The exhibition will be on display from February 2, 2024 - July 7, 2024 and will feature more than 40 of Harvey’s works, including her groundbreaking net-based interactives, video games, and augmented-reality sculptures from a career spanning nearly four decades.

Auriea Harvey has persistently reimagined and redefined the creative boundaries of networked technologies for more than three decades. She possesses a remarkable sensitivity to how the digital revolution of the 1990s spawned a societal shift in the way humans connect. Her trajectory—from creating artwork to be viewed solely in a web browser to challenging lines between virtual and tangible experiences through 3D printing and augmented reality—consistently reflects the paradoxical power of computers to enable intimacy while interfering with corporeal contact and occupation of shared space.

As an integral aspect of our ongoing social responsibility efforts through the 4THBIN 4GOOD program, we are honored to have supplied MoMI with a diverse array of technological resources, including computers, adapters, tablets, and monitors, enriching their artistic installations and reinforcing our belief in the profound impact of art as a catalyst for positive change. We firmly believe in the power of art as a transformative and accessible medium, fostering creativity and expanding perspectives. Our partnership with MoMI reflects our dedication to leveraging technology to amplify the impact of art, creating an environment that encourages the exploration of new ideas and perspectives.

At 4THBIN, our commitment extends beyond art to encompass community education and outreach. Through collaborations with cultural institutions like MoMI, we aim to weave crucial messages, such as the environmental risks of electronic waste and other global challenges, into the fabric of artistic narratives. This approach reflects our holistic vision of community engagement, where the intersection of technology, art, and education becomes a powerful platform for positive change. As we navigate the evolving landscape of social responsibility, our collaboration with MoMI exemplifies our unwavering dedication to making a meaningful impact and contributing to the enrichment of communities.

Our previous sponsorship with MoMI for the exhibition of “Refreshing the Loop,” an Animated GIF Installation Series, was on display from April 20, 2023 - January 14, 2024 and served as a testament to our ongoing commitment to supporting innovative artistic endeavors. The success and positive reception of this exhibition further fueled our enthusiasm to deepen our collaboration with MoMI.

About Auriea Harvey:

Auriea Harvey (b. 1971, Indianapolis, IN) is an artist living and working in Rome. Her practice encompasses virtual and tangible sculptures, drawings and simulations that blend digital and handmade production including 3D printing, augmented and virtual reality. Drawing from her extensive experience in net art and video games in the collaborative groups Entropy8Zuper!, Tale of Tales, and Song of Songs, she brings personal narratives and character development to her practice. She is primarily concerned with making the mythological world visible through form, interaction, and immersion. Her works are a synthesis of art historical reference and imagination, and she is engaged across time, media, and material to define what sculptural production means in the present moment. Before moving to Europe, Harvey went to Parsons School of Design for sculpture, living and working in New York for a decade. The artist’s work can be found in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, Buffalo AKG Museum, Walker Art Center, and Rhizome’s Net Art Anthology. Her video games and mixed reality works have had international success, including exhibitions at the Tinguely Museum, Basel; the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the New Museum, New York; and ZKM, Karlsruhe. Harvey is the recipient of a Creative Capital grant and a winner of the Independent Games Festival Nuovo Award. She is represented by bitforms gallery, NYC.
