3LD Art & Technology Center is a community-oriented and artist-run production development studio foremerging and established artists and organizations that create large-scale experimental artworks of all kinds. Another favorite at Digital Revolution” is an experience called Petting Zoo. ” Instead of rubbing cute goats and furry rabbits, you get to cozy up to snake-like tubes hanging from the ceiling. Doesn’t sound like fun? But wait, these are very responsive tubes, bending and moving and changing colors based on how they read your movements, sounds and touch. They might pull back shyly if they sense a large group approaching or get all cuddly if you’re being affectionate. And if you’re just standing there, they may act bored. The immersive artwork, developed by a design group called Minimaforms, is meant to provide a glimpse into the future, when robots or even artificial pets will be able to read our moods and react in kind.
Digital wall art is either entirely generated on the computer or based on a scanned image which is then digitally enhanced to create the finished product.This new form of art emerged in the 1960s and has become more common place with advances in computer technology and desk top publishing software.
Art and artists are increasingly responding to these changes by integrating the language and methods of science. The Art + Technology program prepares students to become artists by facilitating the conceptual, technical, and creative development of an informed and critical practice.
Inspired by the spirit of LACMA’s original Art and Technology program (1967-1971), which paired artists with technology companies in Southern California, the Art + Technology Lab at LACMA supports artist experiments with emerging technology. Through our sponsors, the Lab provides grants, in-kind support, and facilities at the museum to develop new artist projects. To date, 20 artists from around the world, including Ghana, Ireland, Korea, Mexico, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Switzerland, have received awards through the Art + Technology Lab.
