Pioneer sound and new media artist Stephan Vitiello creates installations that use the physicality of sound to define a particular space. In 1995 Vitiello was an artist in residence in the World Trade Center, World Views. The artist connected contact microphones to the windows of his 91st story workspace and recorded ambient sounds from wind, traffic, planes and the building itself moving. Vitiello has completed several other artist residencies including Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, and P.S.1 National/International Studio Program. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Kinetic Imaging at Virginia Commonwealth University, and just last night the artist performed at Diapason Gallery, NYC’s only venue devoted to sound art. Vitiello is a recipient of both a Creative Capital Foundation award and a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship. On January 31, GAS in NYC will present an exhibition titled [silence] featuring Vitiello.
