THE MEDIUM IS THE MESS AGE:

Drawing Experiments on the relationships of the body, new and old media, in the internet age.

26 Oct | Thu | 3-5pm | 5th Floor, Sceneshop, School of Design and Arts

Our smartphones have become indispensable tools for staying in contact with our friends, the world, and information in general. This workshop aims to explore the relationship between the actions we perform to operate our smartphones and the images (photographs, video) that these devices provide us with, as well as investigate the human physicality that faces off against information. In the workshop, participants will operate smartphones with paint attached to their fingers, leaving the trajectory of their finger movements on the screen. This “painting” will accentuate the action of manipulating information as a trace of human act. While referencing the different paintings created by the participants, the workshop will elucidate the relationship between interfaces, action, and media-generated imagery.


Participants must bring: Smartphone, Painting Brush


Workshop includes: Protection screen for each phones, Acrylic luminous paint
