The Owens Art Gallery is presenting the work of artist and computer scientist Daniel Vogel. Vogel’s large-scale digital art works, Siftor and My name is Owen will be showing at the Owens from March 9 until April 28. The opening reception will be on Saturday, March 9, at 7:30 pm. The artist will be present at this event and all are welcome to attend.
The work within this exhibition includes two components. Siftor focuses on human-computer interaction allowing the movements of the viewer to act as catalyst for thousands of images that belong to the Owens collection. My name is Owen is a window projection, which randomizes text to engage in a one-sided conversation with the Owens Art Gallery website. This exhibition also acts as Vogel’s research, analyzing engagement between humans and computers. Vogel is currently a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow in the Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo.
A publication on Dan Vogel's research and documentation of the exhibit with an essay by guest writer Susan Edelstein will accompany the exhibition.
