New Media Series — Pae White: Dying Oak
October 22, 2010–January 16, 2011

Los Angeles-based artist Pae White leads the viewer on a dizzying, hypnotic journey through, around and inside an 800-year-old oak tree in Dying Oak (2009), a digital animation. Using sophisticated 3-D scanning technology, White collects visual data from the interior and exterior surfaces of the tree. The artist then translates this data into glowing pixelated imagery that shifts back and forth between representation and abstraction.

Curated by Tricia Y. Paik, assistant curator of modern and contemporary art, Dying Oak will be on view in Gallery 301 through January 16, 2011.
