January's salon

January’s get-together found us in the Eventi Hotel on 30th and 6th, overlooking the plaza that is home to the Big Screen Project. Marius Watz was the first presenter. Growing up in Norway, he found his interest in 3d imagery was not supported by the institutions of the day, so he made […]

December's salon/party

Tuesday’s salon was also LISA’s holiday party, but we made room for two presenters in amongst the festivities. Carter Cleveland, founder of, presented first. is a fine art recommendation website, currently in development.

Featured Presenter: Luke Dubois

Luke Dubois presented at the LISA salon on Monday, January 11th.  Luke is an unassuming guy who comes across as incredibly humble.  When you finally get him to spill the beans it turns out he’s an unbelievably talented and prolific artist who has shown his work in some incredible venues […]

Featured Presenter: Asya Reznikov

On January 11th, Asya Reznikov presented at LISA at the Soho Gallery for Digital Art.  The first thing I have to say about Asya’s work is that still images simply do not do it justice.  So you may want to start by checking out the video clips on Asya’s website. […]

Featured Presenter: Erik Sanner

At the December Salon, Erik discussed some of his perspectives on the history of painting as time-based, in exploration of his interest in making “paintings that move”.  He also did something really, really cool – the last time Erik came to visit the apartment he took a snapshot of a […]

Featured Presenter: Categuru

So my buddies Carl Michael Carlson and Larry B. Finer have created a spanking cool word game for the iPhone called Categuru, and they demoed it right at launch, just in time for our December 8th salon.  The way it works is the screen, which looks like an antique wooden […]

Featured Presenter: Scott Kildall

Kildall showed us his latest project “afterthought”, which I believe he is working on as one of Eyebeam’s resident artists. He shows a series of images to a willing subject, who is wearing a device to measure brain activity.

Featured presenter: Nina Paley

Nina spoke to us in December on her views on copyright and distribution.  I think she wrote this post after our event, spurred on by a question someone asked at the salon, which she undoubtedly gets all the time: What’s Stopping You? Nina’s perspective on freeing up her copyright by […]
