Art and Technology Collaboration
Visual arts comprise many forms of art—painting, drawing, sculpture, music, literature and performance art being the most widely recognized. However, with the technological revolution, others forms have emerged such as digital art, computer graphics, computer animation, virtual art, Internet art, interactive art, video games, computer robotics, and art as biotechnology. It caused a big breakdown in how artists use traditional media.
The genres are getting blurred and it's kind of creating this whole new vocabulary within the art world of how we define different media. Digital art has obviously developed much more quickly than the thousands of years of hand-crafted techniques. A whole generation has been brought up on new technologies. But still most digital art is designed to be viewed on low-resolution devices. Much of this art will be obsolete if seeing on higher-resolution screens and devices. I find it a shame that so much great work is reproduced at such a limited resolution and scale. Not that much criticisms have been made against it: for example, given the variety of tools at their disposal, how much effort do digital artists really have to put into their work?
If visual art is on the same line with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math why do the artist often refuse a great opportunity to be in the technical upstream?
While DIY (Do It Yourself) workshops on a wide range of topics, including 3D printing, woodworking and building robots became a norm of knowledge large international conferences are still ignored by artists.
We had a look at one of the world's best-attended tradeshow dedicated to professional AV and electronic systems integration, offering a world of new business opportunities for its attendees. ISE (Integrated Systems Europe focuses on professional AV and electronic systems integration. No other European show comes close to ISE in terms of exhibition size or the range of new technologies on display. From large-screen video walls and projection systems to the smallest handheld remote controller, from cabling and infrastructure through to conferencing, digital signage, audio systems and content management, ISE has it all under one roof. ISE is a technology-enabled show, with exhibitors going to great lengths to show how their products contribute to real-world solutions.
We found some interesting solutions for our next projects: installations with synchronized projectors, waterproof sound system, trekking cameras for 3D visualization and much more.
Here is our small overview from ISE 2014.
