Synthesis: Art and Nature in the Post-Digital Age
On view Dec 12, 2019 - Feb 8, 2020
Opening reception and Artists' Talk Dec 12, 5-7pm!
As our technology advances it is easy to believe that we have grown very far from our natural selves. Many people fear the state of our Post-Digital world, consumed by screens and overwhelmed by targeted advertisements and social media, as technology becomes more completely integrated into our everyday lives. The artists in this exhibition look past the blip of the digital screen and into the future - a future in which the boundaries between nature and technology blur completely.
Featuring work by 26 artists from around the globe, this exhibition includes 3D printed sculpture, Virtual Reality, special effects animation, interactive smartphone filters, digital painting, and traditional media.
Programs of the Twin City Art Foundation are supported by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council as administered by the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council. Funding has also been provided by the National Endowment of the Arts, ArtWorks.
