For the first time the SpaceTime Exhibition honoring student artists is a real art gallery with a traditional space. The Exhibition will be located on the main floor to the right of the Job Fair. The hours are Sunday 10am-5pm, Monday-Wednesday 9am-5pm, and Thursday from 9am-noon.
The three divisions within the SpaceTime Exhibition, print, animation, and interactive works, capture a moment in time that embodies the richness of creative expression within the space of computer graphics technology from the past and present.
The SpaceTime competition is an international juried Exhibition for students currently enrolled and working in computer graphics and digital arts. The Exhibition captures the state of creative computer based student work and acts as an annual slice of the computer graphics continuum. Over time the print, interactive, and animation projects displayed in the SpaceTime Exhibition will continually redefine the aesthetics associated with the discipline as the technology affords new opportunities.
This year, not only did the print division include our traditional poster Exhibition, but we added a new digital print category in which the artist determines the theme and the method of output or representation. The animation division includes excellent and creative examples of animation ranging from the hyper-real to the traditional abstract works. The interactive division showcases computer based interactive works that engage the participant in novel ways and includes web based, desktop, and interactive installation
In the Interactive category there will be 21 works, nine of which are physical installations. Of the nine, some will be on Exhibition while others will be shown as documentations. The desktop works will be shown on three different systems. The curator for the Interactive category is Scott Paul Dunham.
