SIGGRAPH 2014 Focus: Art

Speculatorum Oculi (The Eyes of Spies) comments on current surveillance activities of governments and corporations through an installation that includes an architectural model surveilled with looming video cameras providing live feeds to a set of video monitors.
SIGGRAPH 2014's creative explorers present artwork and sessions on 2D and 3D art, interactive systems, augmented reality, mixed-media installations and performances, web-based art, responsive media, time-based works, works based on mobile technologies, digital communities and social media, robotics, touch-screens, and wearable art.

Listed below is just some of the SIGGRAPH 2014 content that may be of interest to the following people: Graphic Designers, Information and Visualization Designers, Multimedia Artists, Painters, Sculptors, Art Managers, Art Students, Art Teachers/Professors.

Here is the preview video for the SIGGRAPH 2014 Art Gallery "Acting in Translation"

Curated by Basak Senova, “Acting in Translation” aims to revolve around the readings, responses, and perceptions of ‘the act of translation’ as a productive tool based on criticality. 
Looking Glass Time aims to represent social media activities and their timelines with physical clock animation, without any recording media.
The participating artists are Paul L. Stout, Rachele Riley, Yunsil Heo, Hyunwoo Bang, Joseph Farbrook, Yoichi Ochiai, Yunsil Heo, Hyunwoo Bang, Inmi Lee, Kyle McDonald, Zohar Kfir, Sam Blanchard, Kirk Cameron, Robert Redfern, Sergio Bernales, Bo Li, Michelle Will, Hung-Ching Chang, Kelsey Farenholtz, Brandon Deaguero, Timmy Meyer, John Mooring, Ali Butt, Speculatorum Oculi, Erik Brunvand, Alon Chitayat, Jeff Ong, Emilio Vavarella, Fito Segrera, Burak Arikan, and Ed Konowal/GraphicsNet.

The Art Gallery will also feature one panel and four Talks with the artists along with a Tuesday afternoon networking reception.


Levitate is a kinetic sculpture composed of levitated ping-pong balls in acrylic tubes that interact with audiences.
“The 2014 Art Gallery represents no single or homogenous approach, but a diverse display of artistic strategies," said Basak Senova, SIGGRAPH 2014 Art Gallery Chair. “Translation, as a term and as a tool, generates numerous potential fields for art production, which is why we selected it as this year’s theme and are thrilled to have these outstanding works and projects.”

The Modern Video Processor is a skeuomorphic metaphor to reminisce about the simple days when talking to machines just meant plugging cables, switching buttons, and rotating dials.
