"Into the Wild: Electronic Art and the Great Outdoors."
Electronic artist and art installation consultant Rob Ray has spent the last five summers integrating and maintaining alternative energy technologies for electronic artworks in the extreme climate of the militarized salt flats of Wendover, Utah. His projects have included the circuitry and power generation of a radio tower designed and built by Deborah Stratman, a push-button system for film projection and viewing, and interpretive audio kiosks for the Center for Land Use Interpretation, in addition to his own artworks. For the first time, Rob will present his experiences and research from these projects. Rob will also explore the technical, fiscal, and creative implications of alternative energy technologies on sound, video, and interactive artworks. This presentation will be particularly useful if you are an artist looking to integrate alternative energy technologies into your practice - or even your home!
