The event will feature two days of talks, hands-on labs, and the opportunity for artists and technologists to explore and collaborate. Key areas of exploration of Betascape Labs Include:
• Physical Computing: Building interactive physical systems by the use of software and hardware that can sense and respond to the analog world.
• Data Visualization: Visually representing data sets to communicate specific ideas or interpret specific data.
• Generative Art: Algorithmic parameters that can be influenced by individuals to generate unique, non-repeatable outcomes whether applied art, science or a discipline in between, in endless variations.
• Digital Fabrication: Creating objects using 3d modeling software and rapid technology such as 3d printers and laser cutters
“We’re excited about the direction Betascape is heading,” says lead organizer Heather Sarkissian. “Both the format and partnerships with Maryland Institute College of Art and University of Baltimore this year promises to offer the most engaging experience we’ve ever had.”
The event will be hosted at the University of Baltimore and the Maryland Institute College of Art. More information will be available on the Betascape website. Speakers and other related events will be announced in the coming weeks.
Last year’s event drew more than 250 participants from across the country, and featuring lectures, discussions, workshops, and a CreateCamp, a hands-on experience where participants built and shared art/technology projects.
Betascape, in its latest iteration, is an evolutionary multi-day experience of art and technology. Started in 2009, Betascape offers immersive learning experiences where artists, technologists, and everyone in between, can explore the intersection of art and technology.
