Opening Reception: Friday, January 8, 1999, 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Miriam Dym’s installation, “Always In A Hurry. Never Gets Lost”, integrates game-like images, diagrams, and constructions elucidating the entangled web of information technology we weave. Through large-scale computer prints, instructional posters and electronic demonstrations, Dym invents a complex systematic language that attempts to code, store and retrieve information or, rather, misinformation. The colorful, intricate patterns and images on her game boards appear to illustrate these systems and processes, yet their meanings are unclear, rendering the game unplayable. Ultimately, her work “speculates on the delicacy of a human voice in this post-industrial age.” Dym received her MFA from Columbia University in 1997 and BFA from Yale in 1990. In the past year she has exhibited work in “Mapping Disruption (New Planning Part 2)” at the Guggenheim Gallery in Orange, California and “New Planning” at POST in Los Angeles, California.
