With electronic arts practiced not only by those who have fully devoted themselves to the medium, but also by artists from disciplines as varied as music, sculpting, painting and performance, electronic technologies have become frequently used brushes in an artist’s paint box. As Executive Director of Harvestworks, a facility that provides access to electronic technology and teaches artists of all kinds how to use it, Carol Parkinson has watched electronic arts evolve and hybrid art forms incorporating cutting edge technology appear. At this event she will discuss recent developments in electronic art and artists.
