CIC Artweek: Arts Technica

Arts Technica aims to highlight how artistic expression is incorporated into modern technology. Guests will try out different tech demos and interactive exhibits and learn about arts created by modern technology. Art and tech enthusiasts alike will gain a deeper understanding of how artistic expression and technological developments can complement each other. The demos will include virtual reality, augmented reality, video game graphic demonstrations, art installations using ePaper technology, and much more. Arts Technica aims to highlight both art created by technology, and art as seen in technology, for a dynamic and multidirectional sensory experience. Featured Demos: Can you have fun exploring "grief"? EmotiVR helps people connect with their emotions using Virtual Reality, with real-time biometric inputs. Leveraging the unique 360' audiovisual immersive characteristics of VR and surreal animation as the medium, EmotiVR taps into the subconscious and takes you on a journey to channel the rather elusive "emotion." We've had great responses with our past participants, including at ICA and GDC. Come and feel for yourself. E Ink Prismâ„¢ creates unique architectural experiences like never before. Manufacturers and designers now have the ability to integrate E Ink technology with traditional architectural products to create dynamic walls, ceilings, furniture and habitats.
