The animated GIF (Graphic Interchange File) has risen in recent years from a crude adornment of early websites to an emerging contemporary art form. Alongside rising popular appeal, GIFs have also made the leap into both web-based and physical art exhibitions and installations. This small exhibition highlights the GIF in the work of who bring web animations into physical gallery space or recreate traditional art spaces (studio, museum, gallery) in browser space. Artists include T.S. Abe, Anthony Antonellis, Carolyn Frischling , Vince McKelvie, Eva Papamargariti, Nicholas Sassoon and Drew Tyndell.

Breaking Ground: Contemporary Photography at the College of William & Mary
On this 175th anniversary of the invention of photography, excitement and anticipation are stirring in the Department of Art & Art History at the College of William & Mary as we prepare to break ground on a new photography program, the first in the College's long history. This dynamic new offering will engage students in dialog and practice as they study historic through contemporary developments in photography pushing the boundaries of photographic art making in the 21st century.
Inaugurating this celebration, the College has generously furnished the exhibition Breaking Ground: Contemporary Photography at the College of William & Mary, a collection of photographic artworks by 110 national and international artists, and accompanying catalog. The exhibition relays a sense of the vast breadth of contemporary photographic art with prints, handmade books, video art, assemblage, sculptural works, and installation. The possibilities afforded through the amalgamation of traditional and new technology, techniques, and materials are boundless.
The show's variety is meant to reflect a basic principle of the new photography program - it is a celebration of photography as a liberal art, as an extension of the humanistic and critical discipline of art-making that has always been the foundation of our university. Photography at the College of William and Mary is not solely a technology; it is a vehicle of visual expression with a history of nearly two centuries. Our approach to it will therefore embrace its newest potentials and also grow out of its history, its historical techniques and processes, and its historical achievements, to integrate contemporary and future practices of photographic art at a deep level into William and Mary’s liberal arts tradition. This is what it means to call photography a new way, our newest way, of engaging humanistic thought.
Please join us in celebrating the College of William & Mary's newest contribution.

Internet of our dreams
Internet of my dreams was the title of my solo show at Transfer Gallery. At the conclusion of the exhibition, I convened a digital panel around a series of topics that had informed the exhibition. Arjun Ram Srivatsa and I moderated the discussions between the eleven invited panelists.
This website contains the result of those dialogs along with additional resources provided by the panelists.

Internet of my dreams is an exhibition that deals in collapsed dichotomies: digital and physical, conscious and unconscious. It is an exhibition of paintings rooted in digital wanderlust, of movement dreamed and quantified.
Using an EEG neuroheadset, Antonellis has produced a new series of digital images based on brainwave recordings of spatial movements experienced within a dream. These source images — the result of data captured and communicated by a brain–computer interface — serve as the basis for a series of paintings and moving images.
Internet of my dreams is Anthony Antonellis’ first solo exhibition in the United States. This new body of work locates Antonellis’ practice squarely within the intersection of ubiquitous data and the ineffably human.
ANTHONY ANTONELLIS (b. 1981, Massachusetts) is a visual artist who is based on the internet in New York. He is graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design, BFA in painting, and Bauhaus University, MFA in new artistic strategies. He is the creator of netartnet.net, an online-gallery listing and directory.
Antonellis’ work has been exhibited internationally at venues including The Photographers' Gallery London, the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, Eyebeam, New York, as well as at art fairs NADA and Untitled Miami Beach. He has been featured in The Creators Project, BLOUIN ARTINFO, and Interview Magazine as well as news outlets such as Wired, CNET, Discovery, The Atlantic, and BBC World Service.
