Vital Technology

October 17 - December 6 Frederick Layton Gallery Opening Reception: Gallery Night, Friday, October 17, 5 - 9 p.m. Vital Technology, a duo exhibition with Milwaukee-based artists Bryan Cera and Nathaniel Stern, uses digital media to invite an exploration of movement as thinking and feeling. The show encompasses large-scale interactive installations - incorporating such technology as body- and motion-tracking, 3D scanning and printing, gesture recognition, and more - as well as more traditional art objects, and process documentation that come out of Cera and Stern's interactive studio practices. The artists ask how our ongoing relationships to digital culture continuously change what we move and think and feel.
