The Leaders in Software and Art Salon will consist of four short presentations by artists who incorporate media and technology into their work, including multi-media installations, performances, digital imaging, and new media. There will be a short reception at 6 pm, followed by an hour of presentations at 7 pm. For those who would like to further discuss the presentations there will be an informal gathering at a venue nearby the museum. A donation is suggested.
The presenters include:
Ursula Endlicher's work resides on the intersection of Internet, performance and multi-media installation. Her focus lies in analyzing the social and structural components of the Web while translating its hidden architectures and languages - such as HTML - into choreography for performances, into layouts for visualizations, installations or objects, or into notation for music. http://www.ursenal.net/
