Art 107 Class Show
Advanced Digital Projects facilitates sustained investigations into digital interactivity in real space. Students created interactive installations, web or public interventions, and critical design objects using sensors or other computational devices. Specifically, the artists in the exhibition are responding to several overarching themes:
Disruptions & Glitches in Social Space: What makes a space social? How do certain spaces change what is considered normal behavior? How do we test the rules? What happens when we don’t follow them? How do we misinterpret each other? Failures, communication breakdowns and arguments, ambiguity.
Augmented Systems: How has technology changed the way the body interacts with the world? How has technology changed the way we interact with other humans? Mobile, public and participatory performance platforms, Social Media, App-Based Sharing Economies, Public vs Private, Inside versus Outside, Happenings, Individuals, Teams, and Mobs. Assistive Technologies, Transparent Enhancements, Extensions, Network Theory, Cyborgs, Object Oriented Ontology
Critical Engineering: Can engineering be critical? Can it be political? Design in the Anthropocene, Philosophies of Design, Ethical Hacking, security/surveillance/privacy, Social engineering, phishing, cross-site scripting, trolling, & authenticity.
