Sharing Visions of Art and Technology
Jeff Carpenter • March 1, 2010
Between June and August of 2007, AVL exhibited its work at Speculative Data and the Creative Imaginary, a cultural program organized by the National Academy of Sciences and held at its national headquarters in Washington DC.
According to the original press release, "The exhibit," curated by Pamela Jennings, "features interactive computer installations, large format digital prints, and wearable technology, representing a confluence of research and creative practices that include the visual arts, design, architecture, performance, science, technology, and engineering. These works illustrate methods of creative inquiry and practice that have the potential to lead to new forms of knowledge.
The exhibition focuses on computer-mediated experiences, technology development, aesthetic practices, and cultural criticality. The works celebrate imaginary scenarios and real-time phenomena from outer space to cyberspace, collective space to urban space, public space to embodied space, and ecological space to dialogical space.
This exhibition is organized in conjunction with the Association for Computing Machinery's Creativity and Cognition Conference to be held in Washington, D.C., from June 13 through June 15."
Other featured artists were Nell Breyer, Sheldon Brown, Roger Dannenburg, Ernest Edmonds, Tiffany Holmes, Pamela Jennings, Greg Judelman, George Legrady, Marcos Novak, Sabrina Raaf, Bill Seaman, Thecla Schiphorst, Christa Sommerer and Laurent Mignonneau, and Martin Wattenberg.
