CFP for Panel @ UAAC Conference – Round Table: Transformation of the Artist’s Studio

Panel Description: Digital and post-digital movements have transformed traditional studio spaces into labs and confined virtual spaces such as computers and the internet. We investigate this transformation and its implications on the practices that result from this loss of physicality.

Moreover the digital aesthetics discussion has moved to the post-digital debate that yet again opens up a new dialogue for the practitioner. Invited speakers will demonstrate a couple of…

DISSOLVING SIGHTS: An Exhibition of Projection Art

February 24th, 6-10pm LOCATION Automata 504 Chung King Court Los Angeles, CA 90012 The projection overlays itself onto objects and architecture thereby merging two distinct types of information as a hybrid form.
