The Perpetual Art Machine (also known as [PAM]) started as an open source Web 2.0 research and archive project. The creators—artists Aaron Miller, Chris Borkowski, Lee Wells and Raphaele Shirley—programmed [PAM] for Scope New York in 2006. Just a few years later, [PAM] has traveled around the continental U.S. and throughout Europe, featuring the video art of more than 300 creative minds from more than 50 countries.

[PAM] is not just a traveling video installation; it’s also an online gallery, database and community. But those aren’t even its coolest features. [PAM] is completely interactive, allowing the viewer to become the curator and giving each person a totally unique viewing experience. Using a touch screen with a friendly human voice, the viewer chooses the word or concept, and the program projects videos fitting the category. Or the viewer can take a passive role and let [PAM] pick the vids.

[PAM] will be on display (or in action?) at the
MOV-IN Gallery at the College of Santa Fe (1600 St. Michael’s Drive, 505-473-6404) from March 7 through April 11, with a reception on Friday, March 7, from 4 to 10 p.m. Admission is free. For more info, visit www.mov-in.org.

Meet The Authors

To celebrate the grand opening of its new library, the Holy Ghost Catholic School (6201 Ross SE) is hosting a Meet the Author Book Fair on Saturday, March 8, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The free event gives local bibliophiles an opportunity to meet more than 20 local authors, including Don Bullis ( Bullseye ), Phil Jackson ( A Spy Wears Two Hats ), Chris Eboch ( The Well of Sacrifice ) and Bernadette Vadurro ( America’s Conscience ). There’s no better way to support the New Mexico book industry than going straight to the source.
