Lower East Side, Manhattan. August 12th-24th, 2016.
The relationship between art and technology is an age old story still in the making. Technology, and its increasing availability, fueled the tech-art movement begun by E.A.T. in the 60s, when artists such as Jean Tinguely and Robert Rauschenberg worked alongside computer scientists and engineers from Bell Labs to make computers and sculptures do things they never would have otherwise. Now, tech-art doesn't necessarily require direct collaboration - many artists consider the language of code on screen, easily learned through online tutorials, to be analogous to the language of color on canvas.
