[- Who's Afraid of Blue, Red and Green?

Author: A Public Competition by GŁnther Selichar

Topic: Animations by Atomicelroy, Anne Wolfius & John Spiff
Keywords: public art, animations, Times Square

[ --------------------------------------------- ]

For Who's Afraid of Blue, Red and Green?, GŁnther Selichar invited internet users to create digital animations using the three colors upon which modern video, computer and television screens are based. Referencing Barnett Newman's 1960s "zip paintings", Selichar devised a platform from which to investigate the nuanced relationship between proportion, scale and color in moving imagery. A prominent jury chose three exceptional animations from over six hundred submissions for their mastery of a simple visual system. The jury included Justin Camerlengo, Carl Goodman, Peter Halley, Sarah Jacobo, Anne Pasternak, Barbara Pollack, Erwin Redl, GŁnther Selichar, Christoph Thun-Hohenstein, Yvonne Force Villareal, and Benjamin Weil.

June 24 - September 30, 2004, the winners' animations will air on NBC Astrovision by Panasonic, an icon within the world's most familiar screen-based urban landscape: Times Square. According to Selichar, "This project offers the individual artist an opportunity to both participate and be represented in our mass media-dominated society. The three finalists responded to the project in a convincing and precise manner by simultaneously showing its complex possibilities and the beauty of simplicity." The three animations in Who's Afraid of Blue, Red and Green? will air daily in The 59th Minute on the NBC Astrovision by Panasonic on the last minute of every hour from 6 a.m. - 1 a.m. except between 7 - 9 a.m. and 6 - 7 p.m.
