Technology in Art
Aug. 29 – Sept. 30, 2017
Where would the Impressionists have been without the invention of portable paint tubes that enabled them to paint outdoors? Inventions and innovations have been providing artists with new ways to express themselves for a very long time.
Over the past few decades, art and digital technology have become more inter-twined than ever before, whether it’s through providing new ways to mix different types of media, giving birth to new art forms, or simply making the process of creating it easier.
Digital cameras, photo editing programs, painting software, 3D printers, smartphones, iPads, Inkjet printers—all these devices are used by artists to create artwork in ways that were never possible before. Some artists use digital devices as tools along with traditional materials, while others use digital programs entirely for creation of art.
Entered artwork must be the original concept and design of the artist. Technological aspects of the art that contributed to the creation of the piece will be identified. All media are acceptable. Artists are encouraged to share their processes on the SPACe website.
The show will be on display in conjunction with the “Michelangelo: Sketches in Clay” exhibit in the Fuller Gallery.
