Digital Art Projects (Other)

Metropolis: Some of Chambers' first work [1998 - 1999] with Metropolis and other images experimenting with symmetry/pattern as an artform. Pattern relies upon three characteristics: a unit, repetition, and a system of organization. Symmetry is a fundamental organizing principle in nature and in culture. The analysis of symmetry allows for understanding the organization of a pattern, and provides a means for determining both invariance and change. Metropolis and other images were exhibited at online galleries such as the Art Bin Gallery, Digital Art Museum and PhotoForum Gallery. >>
GEO: One of Chambers' earlier works for print with new media components utilizing Fabio Ciucci's Anfy applets. Fabio says, "Nice application of my applets. I majored at the Institute of the Arts here in Lucca, Italy. After all, the Anfy applets are meant to be art, mostly." Geo and its new media components are abstract representations of Earth's geography/climate through an applet experimentation process. Geo was exhibited as a part of the 2001 IDAA exhibition at Noosa Regional Gallery, Australia. >>
Blue Sky: Chambers put this work together based on his experimentation with the pixel [Pixelscape], Traditional African symbolism and appropriation of his photodocumentary project [Southwest of Rusape: The Mucharambeyi Connection] that he made in Zimbabwe, Africa. This appropriation or borrowing/presentation of images in ways that offer the viewer new perspectives and/or values associated with them is the essence of Blue Sky as well as an exercise in Web mechanics. >>
Toe Totem: Chambers put this work together as scanner art, a play on the word, toe [part of the anatomy scanned] and a study of the totem as a tribute to the Native peoples who made/make totems as symbols that that each Native family, or clan, adopts. This image was exhibited as a part of Glass Membrane: Scanner to Screen (group show), Digital Studio, UCR/California Museum of Photography, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A. (2002). >>
Chinese Character Studies: Chambers' sensitization to the Chinese language [characters] led him to this study utilizing various Chinese characters within a simple design context. He views the characters not as a language, but as objects/subjects within their translated environment. These images and Flash versions were presented as a part of the Digital/New Media Art Seminar at Zhaoqing University, Zhaoqing China, 2005. Brush up on your Chinese to be able to understand these images. >>
Soft Portraits: Chambers takes a look at self-portraiture as an incorporation of various graphics software programs to affirm e-technology's overriding presence in today's society. And in a mixed-media sense, he contrasts photographic image(s) with the text and design of the software to make the point that the product (image(s)) and the tool (software) are one and the same - coexistent as a part of the creative process. >>
