If Cyberarts needs new vision, make it this. Get on BoingBoing.net. Keep the small shows, but exercise more quality control and curate marquee projects that attract out-of-towners. The Cory Arcangel survey that opens May 26 at New York's Whitney Museum should have originated here as part of Cyberarts. Arcangel is based in New York, but he's collaborated with the Massachusetts and Rhode Island collective Paper Rad. Paper Rad's Ben Jones is out in LA preparing an animated series for the Cartoon Network. Cyberarts should have brought him home to screen a preview. Add live demos of the superfreaky BigDog robot by Boston Dynamics in Waltham and the flying car developed by Terrafugia in Woburn and you've got a major attraction.
