Art of the App: Mobile apps and their potential for creative expression
February 24, 2016 - March 17, 2016
Art of the app
Mobile apps and their potential for creative expression
LSU Student Union Art Gallery
February 24–March 17, 2016
Opening: March 5, 2016, at noon
Art of the App is a gallery show about the creative potential of mobile applications curated by LSU digital art faculty and graduate students. In a world with more mobile devices than people, mobile apps have not only become a means of communicating and sharing information but also a widespread medium for artistic expression. In addition to allowing for the rapid consumption of static works, apps are uniquely capable of enabling new forms of interactive, participatory, and generative art. Through the fusion of art and code, artists utilize an array of sensors and inputs such as GPS, accelerometers, cameras, touch screens, and wifi to bridge vast interconnected networks and individual experiences.
Works chosen for the show include applications that push that boundaries of electronic art, music, design, and literature on platforms such as Apple iOS, Google Android, and the mobile web. Selected pieces resonate with the theme of LSU’s 2016 TEDx event of how questioning is at the heart of learning and understanding and how asking “why” sparks change in our community and our world.
Participating pieces include: Papers Please by Lucas Pope, Blackbar by Neven Mrgan, Vanitas by Tale of Tales, Energy Flow by F I E L D, For All Seasons, Andreas Müller, Monument Valley by USTWO, Tengami by Nyamyam, Sometimes You Die by Philipp Stollenmeyer, and Eliss by Steph Thirion.
Art of the app opens during the TEDxLSU conference at noon on March 5, 2016, at the LSU Student Union Art Gallery and runs from February 24 to March 17.
