The Electric Objects Salon is open to all XOXO attendees and their guests -- if you aren't an XOXO attendee, register on this site to gain admission. All ages welcome until 7pm, 21+ after 7pm.
It's 2015 and our aesthetic tastes reflect the fact that we live, at least in part, on the internet. From lenticular GIFs to emoji fashion, these trends do interesting work by applying the trappings of the internet to offline contexts. But a shirt emblazoned with the frames of an animated GIF is not the same as the GIF itself. Is it possible to experience net art away from a laptop or phone, in some context other than multitasking our way against the day? The Electric Objects Salon represents a hypothesis, that one vector for bringing net art itself into the home environment is the EO1, the world's first computer designed expressly for displaying net art.
See art exploring humanity's relationship with technology, expressed using technology as art. Including: works created for Kickstarter's $5 Commission by Lauren McCarthy, Casey Reas, Addie Wagenknecht, and James George; Darius Kazemi's newest piece, made especially for the EO1; sensory stimulation with beauteous projections and soundscapes created by Dots; and more!
