SIGGRAPH Art Gallery Unveils Event Line-Up

The SIGGRAPH Art Gallery released its line-up for events during conference week.

The theme for this year is “Tracing Home” and the following is Mona Kasra’s [the SIGGRAPH 2011 Art Gallery chair] vision statement for the content:

“In the era of networked technology, the interplay of physical and virtual within our lived experience opens up portals and wormholes enabling simultaneous and discontinuous realities at the touch of a button, echo of a voice, or nudge of a sensor. The new dynamics not only reconfigures our relations with ourselves and with one another, but most importantly, it reshapes our sense of identity, belonging, and place. The SIGGRAPH 2011 Art Gallery: Tracing Home, presents exceptional digital and technologically mediated artworks that explore issues related to the concept of home in the networked age.”

Listed below is a guide to the week’s activities:
