Photo ‘Blackboard Notes’ by Roy Ascott, 1967.
Digital Analogy is an exhibition that addresses computer code from an artistic approach. The artists participating stand out as pioneers who have influenced the creation of current interactive interfaces. They are some of the pioneers of Electronic and New Media Art, as understood today.
The exhibition explores the artistic, social and scientific discourses in an effort to understand the evolution of New Media Art. Looking at the different approaches the curator seeks to comprehend some of the philosophical and technological evolutions brought to the arts. Amongst the artists featured there are works by British Professor Roy Ascott whose theories about “Telematics” influenced mobile communication. Other artists featured include Casey Reas, co-creator of the programming language processing.
Visitors to the exhibition can expect to enjoy an interactive layout with video installations, mapping projections and site-specific interventions. This initiative will give the public in Bogotá the opportunity to discover the outstanding works of the pioneers of New Media alongside an exhibition of artworks from the Sedition Curated collection including works by Matt Pyke, Jenny Holzer and Bill Viola. The exhibition will run from 8 – 28 February 2014 at MAC Bogotá in Colombia. For more information head over to the MAC website.
