About the Event
As art and technology become more and more intertwined, many contemporary artists are adopting new types of media to create their work. From immersive storytelling, projection mapping, to generative animation, artists are using rapidly developing technologies to push the boundaries of their practices.
Save the date for a new series of virtual talks that combine an artist talk with a technical demonstration. Curated by VMA professors Rashin Fahandej and Leonie Bradbury, this event is presented by Emerson Contemporary and supported by the Department of Visual and Media Arts and the School of the Arts.
Chapter I: Public Encounters: Using Emergent Technologies to Build New Communities (Spring 2021)
In part 1 of this 3-part public programming series, Pierre Friquet, Violeta Ayala and Pamela Hersch share how they use emergent technologies to build and connect new communities online and in person.
Wednesday, March 31, 6-8 pm Join experimental video artist and musician Pamela Hersch as she discusses light as a public intervention in urban spaces and her use of the open tool suite TouchDesigner to create dynamic projection mapping installations.
Pamela Hersch is a Boston-based, multidisciplinary artist originally from Mexico. Her primary focus is at the intersection of art and technology. In her projection-mapping and video artwork, Hersch plays with properties like time, scale, texture, color, juxtaposition of raw footage with graphics, and the combination of organic and artificial elements to tell a story and to transform spaces. She has collaborated with producers, musicians, and dancers, aiming to represent their distinct sounds and personality by creating visual content across a spectrum that includes photography, music videos, lyric videos, and live show visuals.
