Sept. 25th: Considerations for the Creation of New Media Art

Deep Wounds, Brian Knep

Art and technology have coexisted, with varying degrees of comfort, for a long time.  As computer based technology proliferates and previously unimaginable tools become democratized, how do artists find a way to incorporate such advances into their work?  And how does the artist create using modern technology without abandoning the basic transformative ideas of art?  This ATNE Salon will present high level issues in contemporary New Media Art creation and explore tools and considerations for the lifespan of such art.  Profiling a number of New England new media artists, their methods, priorities, and ideologies, this salon will provide a foundation for a discussion.

When: Wednesday, Sept 25th, 7:30pm
Where: Boston Cyberarts Gallery, 141 Green St.,  Jamaica Plain, MA
Presenter: Chris Clepper
Free event
RSVP to Space is limited.
