Each year Digital Atlanta hosts an event that highlights the intersection of art and technology. This year, we're stepping it up a notch and partnering with WonderRoot to showcase local artists' digital works and interactive media! Projects will aim to activate, enliven and interact with the audience of Digital Atlanta, who will then have a chance to vote for their favorite piece. The digital arts showcase will seek to create connections between the arts community and the technology and design communities to share influence of the creative class in our city.

Come out for an electrifying night of digital art as we party long into the night!

Virginia Byers and Aria Ritz Finkelstein - Automatic Drawing
Mixed media
Automatic Drawing is one project within a series of experiments investigating the use of small electronics and open source programming as research, drawing, and construction tools. Specifically, it harnesses a self-navigating quadcopter as a painting tool.

Andrew Quitmeyer, Ava Ansari, Michael Nitsche, Digital World and Image Group, The Back Room, and Anonymous Iranian Performers - Subway
Android Camera Library, Adobe After Effects
The Subway project digitally joins performers and activists from Atlanta and New York with participants in Teheran to digitally circumvent restrictive laws against dancing in Iran. Together, they create a new hybrid performance spanning the digital and physical boundaries of three cities. The piece uses digital technology to break a dance video documentation into individual frames, which become the basis for a cell phone application that allows performers in Iran to re-enact individual poses. Finally, each pose is sent back and re-assembled in the documentation of the shared event. 

Mary Stuart Hall - Thinking of you thinking of me
Max MSP software with X-Box Kinect as a sensory
An interactive video installation, Thinking of you thinking of me, seeks to engage conference participants and the general public to explore the permeable boundary between viewer and content generator.  When the viewer approaches the TV screen they will see a live image of themselves but scrolling text will appear above their heads.  The X-Box Kinect delivers the live image of the viewer and senses when a face is present.  When a face, or multiple faces, are present, scrolling text will appear above their heads.  The text in the thought bubble is from John Dewey’s essay on qualitative thought.  Thinking of you thinking of me invites viewers to engage in the installation and provides a catalyst to reach beyond the conference and construct their own meaning, knowledge and experience.
