THROUGH THE MEMBRANE
| James Paterson at Eyeo 2018 |
James is a Montreal-based artist and creative technologist whose work hangs out at the intersection of drawing, animation and code. Each of these mediums offers limitless room for exploration, but when braided together they can open up wormholes of creative possibility.
This talk is about skipping back and forth through the membrane between physical and virtual worlds, exploring the relationship between traditional art mediums like drawing, animation and sculpture, and emerging ones like VR, AR and 3D printing/scanning. New technologies are spraying out of the firehose at breakneck speed. While it can feel bewildering at times James believes these new forms are ripe for creative exploration. How can we use them to express ourselves in ways previously unimaginable?
