Art in Silico is a computational art exhibition and event series that examines the expressive world of creative computation and the confluence of technology and art, connecting circuit board to canvas.
As technology pervades our existence, forming new universes—metaverses—in which we can live, act, and perceive, the spaces between the conventional science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines and the creative arts have shrunk to the infinitesimal. Art in Silico celebrates the continuum of arts and STEM, seeking to hack your mind and STEAM your brain to experience a world in which data are compelling, evocative, provocative, ugly, beautiful, and appealing.
Submissions may take the form of (but are not limited to) digital art, AI art, robotics, video, audio, interactive artworks, coding, performance, and/or traditional media--as long as the artwork addresses some aspect of computing, that’s what this show is all about.
Interested participants will need to use the submission form in advance of the deadline (March 4) with respect to the submission guidelines. Submissions are encouraged from everyone, not just from Michigan Tech students, faculty, and staff. Any questions about submissions, including guideline inquiries, can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Artwork will be displayed from April 2 to May 6, 2024. Artists can opt to allow their pieces to be auctioned to support student scholarships and/or the Copper Country Community Arts Center in Hancock.
