Art and Tech MFA alum Fernando Orellana’s has a solo show at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA), recently reviewed by Hyperallergic. To summon the ghost of Thomas Eakins to Philadelphia through art machines and nude models, robots are constantly sampling three different measurements: electromagnetic, temperature, and infrared. All three of these are what pseudo-scientist and paranormal researchers measure when they try to detect ghost activity.
Art and Tech students and faculty and alumni presented work at Maker Faire in Ottawa Canada in a special art exhibition titled Preternatural, co-curated by Ohio State University Professor Ken Rinaldo and Maker Faire curator Remco Volmer. They invited artists whose works address the perspectives of animals, media and technological representations, ecosystems, futures, coevolution, symbiosis and friction between human and non-humans. These included 3D rapid prototyped sculptures, 3D animations, robotic artworks, performance and moving image art installations.
