JCAL features artists using digital technology in new media art. Works are categorized as animated, interactive and/or media or web-related. LivePictures: The Digital World Animates Contemporary Art is an examination of the impacts of multimedia/digital technology on creative artistic practice, curatorial presentation, and public reception. The exhibition explores the artwork that uses today’s advanced technology in a sophisticated manner for interaction, animation, and automation.
For example, a painting in which the image within the frame interactively moves in reaction to the walking spectators; a projected image that incorporates surveillance technology, making viewers aware of their movement; or sculptural work that employs automatic mechanisms such as robotics. Keywords like game, surveillance, simulation, and automation guide the selection of works for the exhibition. All ages are invited to “log on”.
Participating artists include Shieh-Chieh Huang, Eunjung Hwang, Ayran Kwang, Patricia McLaughlin, Marcin Ramocki, Daniel Rozin, Bill Viola, Ricardo Miranda Zuniga, among others.
