Creative Time Announces Public Competition by Gunther Selichar

Winners To Air On Times Square Astrovision

Creative Time and Panasonic are proud to present Gunther Selichar’s Who’s Afraid of Blue, Red, and Green?, an online competition and public art project based on the elementary visual building blocks of digital display screens. Through March 31, 2004 (in cooperation with the Landesmuseum in Linz, Austria), Selichar invites participants to design an animation derived from 15 vertical compositions in blue, red, and green. Three winning entries chosen by a jury consisting of the artist, Carl Goodman, Curator of Digital Media at the American Museum of the Moving Image; artist Erwin Redl; Christoph Thun-Hohenstein, Director, Austrian Cultural Forum; Barbara Pollack, Writer and Artist; Anne Pasternak, Executive Director, Creative Time, and others, will be announced in May 2004 and featured as part of the next installment of The 59th Minute: Video Art on the Times Square Astrovision, June 27 through September 2004.

Drawing upon Barnet Newman’s abstract expressionist “zip paintings” from the 1960s, a series in which Newman explored the nuanced relationship between proportion, scale, and color, Selichar invites participants to create their own digital animations in blue, red and green-the three pixel colors that serve as the foundation for all graphic representation in our video, computer, and television screens.
