Week 8: Technology and Art

Technology is one of the tool of producing art works. The artists use the different way to create the unique art piece. In the lecture, the professor showed us the fractal art with the music which was really interesting to me. In this video I found from the link that professor provided on the syllabus. The technician spent lots of time to design the light with the music of the museum, which makes an amazing performance.

Lights On is an audio visual performance created for opening of the new Ars Electronica museum in Linz, Austria, which has a facade that contains 1085 LED controllable windows. The windows’ colors are changed in realtime with music that’s broadcasted on speakers surrounding the building.
The performance is approximately 10 minutes long. The whole performance has been recorded in software and can be replayed in the future for events.

The technician spent time on collecting data, designing the pattern, and testing the progress. This makes me feel that this art work is alive that the light changes by the change of the time and music. When the light changes, the emotion of the audience changes as well as a way to communicate with the audience. In the lecture slides, it stated that “technology is a tool of the mind in the ‘human-nature mangle,'” which I will consider it as the computing art, which the artist uses the “human-made” tool or way to create a “conversation” with other human beings.

In this video list below, it was a decoration for the Christmas with music and lights. Same as the previous video, the light changed with the music.

I always enjoy the the art which combines music and images because it always catches my attention.
