STATE OF THE ART: UNREALISTIC BEAUTY EXPECTATIONS
Do Space's State of the Art (SOTA) speaker series provides a platform for local.
Date: Tuesday, March 2, 2021 Time: 6:30pm – 7:30pm Presenter: Alex Myers Do Space's State of the Art (SOTA) speaker series provides a platform for local individuals and groups who are using technology in innovative ways to share their work and ideas. Each month will feature a different artist, maker, entrepreneur, industry professional or thought leader in an effort to stimulate discussion and inspire ideas around the topic of technology. Alex Myers is Associate Professor of Interaction Design in the Department of Computer Science, Design, & Journalism at Creighton University. Often interrogating issues of immersion, affect, violence, and interactivity, Alex's new media work has been widely exhibited in international venues across North and South America, Europe, and The Middle East. His work has also received numerous grants and awards, including the Provincié Groningen Kunst en Cultuur Prijs in 2009 and 2014; the Electric Objects Artist Grant in 2016; and the “Best Interactive” Award from the Austin Music Video Festival in 2017. In 2011, Myers was selected as one of ten “Artists to Watch” by the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art. As a visual artist, he explores the use of video game technologies in media art and the critical roles which technologies familiar from mainstream media contexts can play in experimental art practices.
