R. Luke DuBois: Now is a collection of work by a composer, artist, and performer who explores the temporal, verbal, and visual structures of our cultural and personal world. In its explorations of our everyday data including Internet dating sites, Google searches, musical structure, and word and visual repetition his work raises issues relevant to information theory, perception of time, structure, and gaze. This lavish and unique monograph is the first survey of the artist's work from the 1990s to the present. Published to accompany DuBois's first major solo exhibition at The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, it features his most important works, including the recent commission for the National Portrait Gallery, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, a fascinating generative video portrait of the founders of Google. R. Luke DuBois: Now includes perceptive essays by leading critics, an introduction from artist Matthew Ritchie, and liner notes by DuBois himself. Featuring full-color illustrations and an elegant design, this book will be the definitive volume on the work of this groundbreaking artist in the prime of his career. R.
Luke Dubois, one of four local artists that have been invited to work for three months each as part of the new Times Square Artist in Residency program, plans to stage subtle performances and record them on webcams installed throughout Times Square. "It is essentially a 90-day, time-lapse film shoot," Dubois says. He plans to use the footage to create "a continuous video portrait of Times Square."
