Computer-generated interactive art exhibit on display April 20

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - A student art exhibit that playfully investigates the complex relationship between computer-generated images and the physical environment around them will be on display 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday (April 20) at Purdue University's Envision Center for Data Perceptualization, Stewart Center, Room B001.

The exhibit is called "BE_TWEEN" and features works by six senior or graduate students in the Envision Art 01: The Responsive Screen Class. The course is the first in a series of interdisciplinary electronic- and time-based art classes offered through the Visual and Performing Arts Division of Art and Design. The course combines resources and technologies in the Envision Center with contemporary artistic research and practice.

Student artists whose work will be displayed are: Hai R. Han, Jack Moreland, Michael Muehlhausen, Candice Reed, Yvette Shen and Carlene Takaki. Each work is an invitation to the visitor to discover and participate, emphasizing the process and immediate experience, rather than contemplation of a finished product.

Fabian Winkler, an assistant professor of Visual and Performing Arts, collaborated with Laura Arns, associate director of the Envision Center for Data Perceptualization, to organize the exhibit. The student exhibit received the support of custom software interfaces developed by David Braun, ItaP research programmer, for the class.
