Art Gallery & E-Tech
This year’s Art Gallery theme was “In Search of the Miraculous” and “features digital and technologically mediated artworks that reveal moments of wonderment” (from the Advanced Program). The Art Gallery offered some lovely, and occasionally interactive, pieces that would be difficult to describe just through the written word… Instead, let’s take a look at the tour presented by this year’s Art Gallery Chair, Osman Khan.
Emerging Technologies (E-Tech) on the other hand “presents innovative technologies and applications in several fields, from displays and input devices to collaborative environments and robotics, and technologies that apply to film and game production” (from the Advanced Program). The opportunity to see both of these venues has come and gone, but just as we have a tour for the Art Gallery, we also have one from this year’s Emerging Technologies Chair, Preston Smith. Check it out to see what you missed… or relive it!
The Art Gallery’s theme this year is Tracing Home which is a presentation of “exceptional digital and technologically mediated artworks that explore issues related to the concept of home in the networked age.”
Emerging Technologies features a wide range of work from being able to experience pregnancy with a fetal movement simulator to a MoleBot.
