Mr. Zucman developed Border Patrol, a New Music interview program, for American Public Media. Also in production is Strange Angels, an interview program on a wide range of visual, performing, and literary arts for Kbeach Radio. In over 100 interviews Mr. Zucman has spoken with a wide spectrum of contemporary thinkers, ranging from former NEA Chairperson Dana Gioia to Nobel Laureate Francis Crick and many others.
Using a range of new media technologies: websites, blogs, social platforms, and virtual worlds, Mr. Zucman has organized over 100 virtual art gallery, installation, and performance projects with students and colleagues.
From his Los Angeles-based studio Mr. Zucman creates and exhibits visual art ranging from abstract-geometric-realist portrait paintings that explore the phenomenology of human visual perception to multi-screen video installations to various robotic artworks including robotic “artists” who draw, give spiritual advice, and pursue their own search for the spiritual, all in a quest to explore the destiny of homo sapiens here in the 21st century.
LOCATION / SENSATION
In this ongoing series of explorations of Locations and the Sensations found there, Mr. Zucman crosses geographic space with numerous remote sensing tools to record both the perceptible, and for humans, imperceptible phenomenology of the space. Recording images, sound, particulate matter, temperature, wind, humidity, pressure and radio frequency spectral analysis of a series of locations he presents the world we exist in but do not perceive, either because we have no sensitivity to given phenomena, or conversely, because as with light, we have such a wide sensitivity range, that it is difficult to perceive actual levels separate from the context of our cultural experience.
