Video Exhibition at Exploratorium

On view starting June 18, 2016

This digital exhibition by Rebecca Rutstein highlights new works including paintings and video footage from her Artist-at-Sea Residency on the Exploration Vessel Nautilus as it sailed from the Galápagos Islands to California. Rutstein created paintings in the wet lab, incorporating never-before-seen sonar mapping data of the ocean floor as it was captured in real-time.

This exhibition also features a video animation, a new endeavor for Rutstein. The animation reveals a hidden world beneath the Galápagos Islands using seafloor data of the Galápagos rift zone captured by the E/V Nautilus’ multibeam sonar technology. The viewer “flies” through this ethereal landscape, dipping into submarine canyons and and coasting over ridges. During this virtual journey the gridlines of data seem to disintegrate and reorganize, creating an abstract and compelling visceral experience. This animation was a collaboration between Rutstein and Onni Irish, a Master of Science in Ocean Mapping from the University of New Hampshire.

Rutstein Selected for New Artist-at-Sea Residency in Vietnam

art-at-sea-ship Rutstein has been selected to travel aboard research vessel Falkor for her second “Artist-at-Sea” residency in late June 2016. With the goal of making people rethink the way marine science is shared and breaking down the complexities of ocean research, Schmidt Ocean Institute (SOI) recently launched their Artist-at-Sea program, and Rutstein is the third to participate.

Rutstein will sail from Nha Trang, Vietnam, in the South China Sea, to Guam, part of the Mariana Islands, located in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean. The Mariana Archipelago borders the deepest feature of the ocean, the Mariana Trench. Rutstein will create paintings in the wet lab of the ship during her time at sea, incorporating mapping data and other research collected from the region.

You can follow along the journey with blog entries HERE and the ship’s status HERE

Rutstein will also participate in a ship-to-shore communication open to the public to discuss her work on the Falkor on June 27th at 7pm EDT. You can watch the live stream on YouTube HERE or join the GOOGLE HANGOUT ON AIR HERE
