‘Human + Computer’ New Media At Exposé

human + computer [Update: Another “Opening” is scheduled for Thursday night, February 20th. Yay!

The snow did not stop some exceptionally hardy new media types from gathering last night, but without the refreshments and provisions it did not quite satisfy. So Thursday then!]

New show opens Saturday at RISD’s student-run gallery Exposé, presented by RISD STEAM, Brown STEAM, and the MIT Media Lab.

STEAM is a movement championed by and widely adopted by institutions, corporations and individuals over the last several years. An acronym for adding the Arts to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), STEAM represents an integrative and multidisciplinary approach to learning and making.

Example works include a device that communicates ones heartbeat wirelessly to a loved one, a garment that resembles a swarm of butterflies that challenges one’s perception of the real, and a silicone cast brain that visualizes the cognition of the person holding it.

Opening night will include music, refreshments, interactive works, and limited-edition prints will be distributed to attendees. The show will remain up after the opening for one week.

Opening 7pm to 10:30pm, Saturday, February 15, Exposé, 204 Westminster Street, Facebook event
