Pratt Institute | 200 Willoughby Ave
Pratt Upload 2016 and Patterns of the Mind invite artists to examine our digital reality, in its multifarious forms. The relationship between screen-based culture, bodily, psychological, and linguistic forms is examined in this multi-media, full day festival of talks, exhibitions, and workshops. From Tyler Coburn’s interface panel to Faith Holland’s investigations into cyber-feminism, this one-day academic symposium centers around new mutations in digital art production and culture. Anna Frants and Cyland Media Arts Festival presents Patterns of the Mind a month long exhibition in conjunction with the festival. Patterns of the Mind features both international new media artists and Pratt Faculty in an exhibition which forefronts the artist’s gesture as the forerunner in any technology driven field. We are honored to have Canadian new media artist Lorna Mills as the festival Keynote. A graduate exhibition Zeroes and Ones curated by students Sung-Ah Jun, Bryce Grates, and Cedric Yon will be held as part of the festival. The Pratt Upload symposium will take place at the Pratt Department of Digital Arts in Myrtle Hall on February 6, 2016, and will run from 10 AM to 10 PM.
