IAS Fellow's Public Lecture - Natural Phenomena as Media: Challenging Perception and Experience Through Multimedia Artworks
Art science collaborations are becoming increasingly prominent, the new media field is exploding, and data driven, interactive artworks are more at home in museums and galleries than ever before. We are in the age of interdisciplinary research and hybrid arts.
Artists have always experimented with media and form, and with the wealth of investigative paths that emerging technologies and material science offer, it is fair to say that some works of art seem more akin to scientific experiment than sculpture.
The success of experiential and immersive art, allows artists to experiment with duration and ephemeral works.Alexandra will explain her process and conceptual methodology of using natural phenomena as media to challenge perception through kinetic and transient works.
By exploring the use of magnetism, scent, weather, sound, light, growth and phase changes, this lecture presents the myriad ways artists have pushed the boundaries of material as time-based media to make comment on the themes of liminality, materiality, transience and impermanence.
This lecture is free and open to all.
