The Digital Blur: Artist/Technologist

A session at MCN 2012

Thursday 8th November, 2012

2:00pm to 2:30pm (PST)

Museum technologists today are engaging audiences in ways that a generation of artists could only imagine. Visualization software transforms collection data into elegant cascades of color; mobile apps allow for Happenings on a huge scale; audio tours are developed as sound art. Likewise, artists today are using cutting-edge technologies as their palettes, delivering engaging, thought-provoking, digital works of art that provoke and inspire. Data is a medium of choice for a group of emerging artists; composers create location-specific pieces for mobile devices; artists splice and re-edit the digital film archive into new operatic forms. What are the dangers and opportunities in this digital blur between artist and technologist?
