PAN-TILT-ZOOM talks - David Bowen

Tuesday, March 15th at 5:00pm

The Pant-Tilt-Zoom exhibition presents ptz=‘talks’; with our third and final guest David Bowen, artist and educator who creates kinetic, robotic and interactive sculptural works.

Using intersections between natural and mechanical systems, David Bowen produces unique relationships within his sculpture and installation. With robotics, custom software, sensors, tele-presence and data, he constructs devices and situations that are set in motion to interface with the physical and virtual world. The devices he constructs often play both the roles of observer and creator, providing limited and mechanical perspectives of dynamic situations and living systems. These devices and situations create a dissonance that leads to an incalculable changeable situation resulting in unpredictable outcomes. The phenomenological outputs are collaborations between the natural form or function, the mechanism and the artist.

Bowen has shown at Laboratoria Art & Science Space, Moscow, The National Art Center, Tokyo, The Soap Factory, Minneapolis; Silver-Echo Gallery, Los Angeles, and Vox Populi, Philadelphia, among many others, and has work in major media art collections such as the ZKM Karlsruhe. He is currently an Associate Professor of Sculpture and Physical Computing at the University of Minnesota, Duluth.

Join us Tuesday for an online talk about telematic art and interactive mechanisms, followed by a Q&A at
