Shirley Shor, New Media Artist S.F.
April 5, 2006; 60 Minutes; Video
With dynamic forms, hypnotic movements, and a luminous palette, Shirley Shor creates artworks that seduce and delight. Part of an emerging generation of new-media artists who are redefining how computers can be engaged in the creation of work, Shor makes real-time computer-generated animations and installations that engage the spatial and temporal. In Shor's works, the landscapes are a synthesis between the code and the territory – animated fields of color are in perpetual fluid motion, expanding, merging, collapsing, and reforming with movements and shapes that become metaphors for concepts such as conflict, language, and identity.
