Computing has transformed many aspects of the world, from how we communicate to how global markets function. Propelled by cheaper, faster, more capable microprocessors and the creativity of individuals and organizations to harness this processing power, computers have become a ubiquitous, empowering presence in our lives.
Artists, as intellectual pioneers, have embraced the unique aesthetic and creative possibilities of computing since the dawn of the Information Age and increasingly apply digital tools with the same fluency as physical ones.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is pleased to present Technovisual, featuring eight artists from across the U.S. who use computer programming and the science of computing to create new experiences and ask new questions.
The exhibition includes a mix of 3D printed and kinetic sculpture, digital photography, simulation-based video and interactive artworks from the following artists:
- Mike Beradino (Houston, Texas)
- Leigh Brodie (Monterey, California)
- Jean-Pierre Hébert (Santa Barbara, California)
- Andy Holtin (Washington, D.C.)
- Shane Mecklenburger (Columbus, Ohio)
- Brandon Morse (Washington, D.C.)
- Barry Stone (Austin, Texas)
- Amelia Winger-Bearskin (New York, New York)
- Sam Lavigne (New York, New York)
The artists range from some of the originators of computational art — including one of the original “Algorists,” Jean-Pierre Hebert — to mid-career and emerging artists from Washington, D.C., Texas, New York, Ohio and California.
The exhibition demonstrates the diversity of artistic responses to emerging technologies and introduces audiences to exciting artists working in the new medium of code-based art.
- Monday – Friday: 9am to 5pm
The AAAS Gallery is located at 1200 New York Ave. NW.
