Exhibition Description TRANSPOSE continues Gray Area’s investigation into expansive forms of technology and the painting of landscapes through digital means. Code is a rule for converting a piece of information into another form or representation. Here we present two artists who work visually and creatively with code, shifting data around into different compositions, transposing their received nature into an alternate one through interpolation and algorithms. Aaron Koblin is an an artist specializing in data visualization.
With Daniel Bisig/Martin Neukom/Jan Schacher, Jason Kahn, Yves Netzhammer/Bernd Schurer, Felix Profos and Jeroen Strijbos/Rob van Rijswijk. Exhibition Description From the rooms we imagine when we hear our noisy neighbors across the wall to the echoes that bounce off mountain cliffs, sound and space combine to create mental landscapes that become important parts of our environment. As developments in media technology make these virtual spaces and soundscapes ever more present in our lives—think video games, GPS applications, and audio surround—they are increasingly the subject of cultural theory study. Rarely have these concepts been explored in media art exhibitions, however.

Thousands of spectators young and old saw the light at MIT — literally. FAST Light, the finale event of the three-month-long Festival of Art + Science + Technology, illuminated MIT's campus and the Charles River on May 7-8, 2011. Onlookers filled campus and the banks of the river to see the 20-plus projects that used light as a focal point. A weekend of kinetic illumination kicked off with the launch of Otto Piene's SKY Event when large-scale, brightly lit stars flew over MIT's Killian Court.
