OSCILLATE: Art Celebrating Light and Movement

Various Artists

OPENING Thursday, January 10, 2013, 6-10pm. FREE
(show runs through February 8, 2013)
Blitz! Second Thursday Artswalk is January 10.

Artists panel discussion on Wednesday, Feb 6, 7:00-8:30pm.

This show celebrates the human capacity to manipulate light and electromagnetism to shape sensory experiences of movement.

Works from thirteen artists and technologists were selected to reflect playful, innovative trends that emerge as artists embrace technology, and technologists embrace art.

Projects include Anthrolume: a wearable, computer-controlled light suit with 250 LEDs, Meteoroleum: a window of programmable lights representing oscillations of Seattle weather, a Self-animating Seesaw, driven by hand-wound electromagnets controlled by a microcontroller, and Tesla’s corpse: a kinetic sculpture visualizing electromagnetic flux lines.
