Crossover at Boston Cyberarts. Art and Technology have continually intersected. May 3 – June 15, 2014. Opening reception: Saturday, May 3, 6-8pm.
Boston – Where is the line between fine art and technology? Historically, art and technology have continually intersected–from the accused Old Masters who are rumored to have used the technology of their time in the production of their masterpieces, to contemporary artists who often straddle the line between the cyber and the palpable. Art is a vehicle for intersecting interests and media, and the use of technology in the creation of fine art further demonstrates this notion. With artistic movements such as “The New Aesthetic”, we are experiencing the influence of technology on art even through more traditional processes. “Crossover” exhibits examples of ostensibly traditional work that are heavily influenced by technology. Even though these pieces do not overtly demonstrate the utilization of technology, they do exemplify the novel way in which technology and fine art are interrelated.
