FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AWMAS 2020 – Art Gallery Exhibition
at the Corwin Pavilion, University of California, Santa Barbara
The UC Santa Barbara-based Alliance of Women in Media Arts and Sciences (AWMAS) will hold its third annual conference this week Feb. 5-7 at the Corwin Pavilion. With the goal of celebrating and promoting innovation by women in the burgeoning transdisciplinary space between science and media arts, the conference this year will focus on the theme of “Integration.”
“Integration” is based on academic research and artistic works by women through transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary connections between the technical sciences and other applied sciences that influence new media art. The main goal behind this conference is to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and experiences emerging from the intersection of science and applied art. Emphasis is placed on the various aspects of the mutual benefits of the integration and interaction between science and media arts.
Attracting leading female engineers, artists, scientists and educators from all over the world, the conference has become a thriving hub for the exchange of ideas, philosophy, research, and art. The conference is led by AWMAS founder Lena Mathew, a doctoral student in UCSB’s Media Arts & Technology graduate program, along with a team of curators from UCSB, and other institutions.
As part of AWMAS 2020, an exhibition of audiovisual art installations will be presented in the Corwin Pavilion, with guided tours by the artists at 5 pm on the first day (Feb. 5th), and self-guided tours on the following days. This will serve as the backdrop for an exciting series of lectures, paper and poster presentations, and a workshop on programming for the creation of experimental computer music. The conference will culminate in a free multimedia concert on the evening of the final day.

“Solfége Souche” (2018)
A Solfège Souche is by definition the root of a forgotten connection with nature. In our time of rapid advancement in technology, we stand on a Vantasner Meridian. Is it dangerous if we do not know what we stand to lose? The video works with movements, light, body, sounds reminiscent of a basic fiber of existence: humans are part of nature. In an effort to portray a relationship with nature, instead of a dominance over nature.
Rachel Wolfe was born in Illinois, and trained in dance, piano, and voice. Her meditative works are informed by observation and inquiry into beauty and sensual feeling. A world experienced through synesthesia informs her inquiry into the Vision and Body relationship through themes of water, terrain, sound, and ways of embodied knowing. Value, depth, texture, colour as related to our feeling of intelligence. At times the work appears otherworldly, saturated, sublime, nearly unreal-but the images and installations made are always about aspects deeply tied to reality. Wolfe holds a Master of Fine Art from Otis College of Art and Design, and a Bachelor of Art in Advertising, with studies in Interior Design. Awards and artist residences include Trélex Residency (Switzerland), PRAXIS Oslo ad Praxis festivalen Tricia Brown (Norway), First Place by the Jury, Imagining New Eurasia Exhibition (South Korea), Woelffer Scholarship and Academic Merit Award, Otis College of Art and
Design (USA), Academic Scholarship for Social Psychology (Japan), Historic Pathways, Indiana State University (USA). The Print Ateliér of Montréal, represents images from Human Needs.
God was not just a mythological persona used to control populations, the ideas and the stories were also ways to describe a motive that could lead to:
Was the fault of religion to give rise to people who abuse power? In the face of reality, we can see the repeated abdication of responsibility, complicity buttress these avenues for corruption to take place. Corruption also gives rise to other motives, and so in 2019, we see an acceptance and normalisation of an increasing amount of life motives which would have been imprisoned or burned. Human life in certain regions has experienced sharp increases in individual freedom, food availability, and been fed media stories about moral and economical superiority without having the lived experience to back up the claims.
In thinking about what is true and real, or what is good as life-giving, there is benefit to gain in approaching ideas to see their contents and results. The study of history can be a leading method of charting the course of future with responsible choices for future generations to reap benefits instead of dire consequences for current missteps.
Science fiction and fiction are not the basis of myth, but instead the misunderstanding and appropriation of what people believe is right and good for the individual again. Humans are continually at several intersections of moral, ethical, political, personal, aesthetic choices. As people learn how to read the signs, visual cues, and weigh their intuitive senses with critical thinking, a sense of moral compass can be retained.
