A special viewing of experimental moving image artworks on CEWIT's Next Generation Video Wall System, in collaboration with the Department of Art.
Please join us at the Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT) on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at 2:30pm, for a special viewing of video-based artworks produced by Department of Art students from two spring semester courses, Graduate Electronic Media and Experimental Video.
Led by Professor Stephanie Dinkins, the CEWIT and Department of Art Video Wall Jamboree will present 30 short experimental moving image art projects on CEWIT's Next Generation Video Wall System, a thirty-two megapixel multimedia display array with 5.1 surround sound system; an extension of CEWIT's multimedia lab and a powerful tool for visualizing R&D development and activity. The artworks will consist of moving images constructed and deconstructed using digital technologies, such as Max Jitter, Processing, After Effects, and Final Cut Pro X.
As part of a constructive, forward-looking partnership, CEWIT, the Department of Art, and the Consortium for Digital Arts, Culture and Technology (cDACT) together drive a series of interdisciplinary special projects, R&D initiatives, and experiences at the intersection of the arts, innovation, and technology. Viewings such as this one will provide a space for active and sustained dialog among Stony Brook University-based researchers, artists, technologists, and entrepreneurs and will lay the groundwork for future collaborations.
CEWIT, the University’s New York State Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology is a leading example of multidisciplinary research and industry/academic partnerships propelling innovation at the cutting-edge of technology. The Department of Art offers undergraduate and graduate programs in studio art and art history with an emphasis on modern and contemporary art. We believe that art must be taught with a critical consciousness of the broad intellectual and social issues of our time, combining interdisciplinary approaches to further awareness of the arts, media and technology.
The May 4, 2016 program will open with an hour long session of student projects, 2:30pm-3:30pm, and will close with a light reception and open discussion, 3:30pm-5:00pm, on project critique, student feedback, and the importance of exploring the vanguard issues that arise at the intersection of computation and the arts.
For any question or concerns, please contact Professor Stephanie Dinkins, Stephanie.firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or LeeAnn Iassogna, email@example.com.
