ATNE hosts an evening with the artists of the Grounded group show at Boston Cyberarts Gallery.
Boston Cyberarts Gallery is pleased to present Grounded, an exhibition that explores the use of technology in contemporary art. In electrical terminology ‘grounded’ is the state of being connected to the earth. As an adjective, ‘grounded’ can also mean sensible, realistic, and unpretentious. New media is sometimes considered the most outré of art forms, but the dynamic nature of technology provides artists with a unique platform to substantively consider current events and the nature of the modern world. In Garden Rooms, Sophia Sobers attempts to reconnect people with the natural world by creating 3D scans of plants and rendering them into digital narratives. By training the world to jump synchronously, Total Jump attempts to accomplish world peace. Mark Stock implements computational physics to simulate the core of a supernova that is then represented as a sculptural object in Chaotic Escape (m70).
Join us to hear some of the artists from this show discuss their work. Artists in this exhibition include: Betsy Connors, Amber Davis Tourlentes, Joseph Farbrook, Caitlin Foley and, Misha Rabinovich, Raquel Fornasaro, Simón García-Miñaúr, Ryan Kuo, Dennis H. Miller, Nick Montfort, Brooke Scibelli, Matthew Shanley, Sophia Sobers, and Mark Stock.
