Cutting Edge – Technology Meets Art is a group show exploring the meeting point between art and technology. Exhibiting works by French originator NOART, Chinese art collective Liu Dao, as well as lenticular works by Italian artist Umberto Ciceri and Korean artist Bae Joon Sung.
Cutting Edge – Technology Meets Art considers both the rise of the aesthetic interface and its diversely global reverberations through contemporary art. Moving away from traditional art forms such as painting and sculpture, new media art can be traced back to the moving photographic inventions of the 19th century including the Zoetrope and the Praxinoscope, before developing into kinetic and light art in the beginning of the 20th century spearheaded by Alexander Calder and Tracey Emin respectively. New video technologies in the 1960s, computer graphics in the 1980s and the World Wide Web in the 1990s perpetuated the necessity of interactivity in art, which was rapidly becoming a critical component of new media art forms. These new media art offered a new type of social exchange, allowing the external viewer to participate and transform the piece itself.
