Science and Engineering: CalArts’ Digital Arts and Technology Expo

Don’t miss a thing. Get breaking Santa Clarita news alerts delivered right to your inbox.

This year’s Expo forecasts future directions in gaming, animation, human computer interaction, digital performance, graphic design, projection mapping and machine learning. 

 At the forefront of arts and technology practice, CalArts is home to the celebrated Machine Orchestra of robotic instruments and has developed an arts-based curriculum for students with little or no previous experience with computer science.

 In fall 2013, CalArts will launch a Digital Arts minor for students in all areas of the arts.

 Valencia, CA, April 23—Project yourself into a virtual music studio or control sound with the movement of your hand. California Institute of the Arts’ (CalArts) Digital Arts and Technology Expo features creatively adventurous and technologically imaginative new work from across all disciplines of the Institute—featuring the latest faculty and student projects that integrate leading-edge engineering and computer science with visual and performing arts. 

 On May 9, 2013 from noon to 10 pm, the public is invited to the Digital Arts and Technology Expo’s demonstrations, interactive audio-visual experiences, performances and concerts on CalArts’ campus in Valencia, California. Admission is free.

 “The work is insane,” comments Associate Dean for Research and Development in Digital Arts, Ajay Kapur. “Students are coming up with ideas and projects for things I’ve never seen before. They view technology as another tool for artists—and are reinventing uses for existing devices and creating completely new applications to create the projects they imagine.”

 Not to be missed: The Third Room, an interactive sound installation in virtual space, powered by the user’s own body; the Turntable Synthesizer, a projection mapping system on turntables that creates an interactive surface for real-time mixing and musical composition; and Kontrol, a wearable interface by which hand gestures control electronic music and effect machine learning. (Use password mtiid to access Kontrol video.) The Expo also features the premiere of, Aqua Harp, the newest addition to CalArts’ celebrated Machine Orchestra of robotic instruments.

 Earlier this month, Mark Zuckerberg and other Silicon Valley leaders called for increased investment in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education to train a computer literate workforce. At a time when educating creative and technically proficient professionals is essential to American economic development, CalArts offers a comprehensive program of computer science, engineering and design for students ranging from beginners to highly advanced. In fall 2012, with support from the National Science Foundation, CalArts launched an innovative arts-curriculum for teaching computer science skills to students in non-STEM fields—some with no previous experience.

 CalArts has long been at the forefront of arts and technology practice. The Institute’s Music Technology curriculum is unique in the world, engaging students in custom software design, circuit design for human-computer interfacing, and the use of robotic mechanical systems and artificial intelligence in musical and artistic practice. CalArts’ School of Film/Video, with its renowned animation program, has been a global leader in innovations in computer graphics and advanced digital media technologies.

 In fall 2013, students around the world can experience CalArts’ innovative arts-based computer science curriculum for free. CalArts has teamed with premier online education provider Coursera to offer this digital programming class, as well as two other MOOCs (massive open online courses).
