May 27th: COLLISION: Stealing from the Real: Simulation and sense making

How do we make sense of our environment parse it, probe it, and enact change? COLLISION: Stealing from the Real examines the transformative power of play and technology’s place within this act. Increasingly computer-mediated, simulation is how we learn about the world and test scenarios, a way of exploring identity, critiquing societal norms, constructing and reframing history or just plain having fun. Simulation redefines play as a rules-based process that allows artists to mimic reality and push formal, technical, and conceptual boundaries.

This exhibit at the Boston Cyberarts Gallery features 10 artists from the US and Canada: W. Benjamin Bray, Rob Gonsalves and Anna Kristina Goransson, Faith Holland, Anette Isham, Erika Lincoln, Sarah Rushford, John Slepian, Mark Stock, and William Tremblay. Join us to hear some from the artists and curator Georgina Lewis.

Where: Boston Cyberarts Gallery, 141 Green St., Jamaica Plain, MA (next to the Green Street Station)
Presenters: Curator Georgina Lewis and COLLISIONcollective artists
Free event
