Artists show technology works

Artists using technology to create new forms of art incorporating multi-media, visual art, music and computer science will showcase their projects at a workshop at the UNM Arts Technology Center (ATC), 1923 Las Lomas NE, on Friday, Nov. 1, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Seven participating artists recently took part in an Artist-In-Residence Program “Cultural Practice/Virtual Style: Creating an Arts Environment in High Performance Computing” sponsored by the ATC and UNM High Performance Computing, Education and Research Center and funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Rockefeller Foundation.

Working at the UNM computing center, the artists used supercomputers, a visualization lab that supports 3-D imaging and the AccessGRID high bandwidth virtual meeting room, which allows for collaborative design with international partners.

“Everyone working in this field is experimenting and learning. That is what makes these projects interesting,” said Danae Falliers, ATC associate director.

Among the artists who will present work is GRONK, widely known for a thought provoking body of expressionistic work including painting, performance, photography, video and installations.

For GRONK's residency in November, he will create an animation to be translated later to the LodeStar Astronomy Center’s digital domed theater. GRONK will work collaboratively with students from the College of Fine Arts and the Computer Science Department.

Artists will present their work from 10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Breakout sessions will be held in the afternoon. GRONK will demonstrate in the visualization lab from 2-3 p.m.
