It’s not often you get to peer into the deep frontier of art. Your next chance is coming up fast. UC Santa Barbara’s Media Arts and Technology Graduate Program (MAT) is hosting its annual End of Year Show (EoYS) June 1 and 2.
This year’s show, “InVisible Machine,” highlights the culmination of research in electronic music, emergent media, computer science, engineering and art. As a transdisciplinary program, MAT weaves these diverse fields into cutting-edge works that transcend the way we see the world.
The EoYS “Invisible Machine” exhibition features demonstrations, installations, performances, and concerts by over 50 student and faculties at MAT, AlloSphere Research Facility, Experimental Visualization Lab, Four Eyes Lab, RE-Touch Lab, Systemics Lab and transLAB.
The show kicks off Friday, June 1, in UCSB’s California NanoSystems Institute (Elings Hall) at 5 p.m. with a keynote address by Marko Peljhan, professor and MAT department chair. Concerts in the campus’s mind-bending AlloSphere, which is open to the public only twice a year, will be presented every half-hour through 9 p.m.
A series of performances, beginning at 6 p.m. June 2 at the Santa Barbara Center for Art, Science and Technology at 513 Garden St., will feature MAT students.
The event is free and open to the public.
