(PAST) Digital Dreams
Time & Location
About the Event
Digital Dreams aims to articulate the relationship between the human experience and technology through the exploration of the subconscious. The duality of our experiences becomes tangible in the works of these artists, who use various mediums to describe the very human experience of dreaming or to explain things that simply cannot be put into words.
The artists explore the subconscious through a wide variety of mediums, from digital video to experimental blown glass, in hopes to describe the indescribable. The results are surreal and visceral pieces built on the emotions and subconscious thoughts of each artist.
The exhibition is curated by nine Emerson College undergraduate students in conjunction with a Visual Media Arts course “Curating Contemporary Art.” The process was guided by Dr. Leonie Bradbury—Emerson’s Foster Chair of Art Theory and Practice and Distinguished Curator-in-Residence. Students were responsible for all aspects of the exhibitions including: exhibit design, building a website, loan agreements, the object checklist, educational materials, social media assets, and press materials.
