Technology Expanding the Horizon

In the past the landscape was understood as a physical place; the distance you could see to the horizon or the rows of corn needing to be plowed before sundown. Now, with ubiquitous Google Maps, the World Wide Web, digital photography and nanotechnology, the landscape, a physical place has been evolving into the landscape as a virtual place. As experimenters and meaning-makers, artists create an important dialogue about how technology impacts and changes our notion of the meaning of this landscape. To address these issues the Art & Technology area and the Photography Area within the Department of Art have invited artists, theorists, and scientists to participate in a free public symposium of art and ideas about today’s reinterpretation and creative investigations of the landscape. During the symposium there will be exhibitions and performances allowing the symposium participants, as well as the general public, to engage with the landscape of the Ohio State University and the city of Columbus.

Four panel discussions take place over this two-day symposium scheduled for March 29 & 30, 2007 at the Wexner Center of the Arts.
