Playing with Time – Tech Talk
with Antoinette J. Citizen
9 October 2017 - MELBOURNE
Is time a perception relative to our experience in the world? Why does time feel like it speeds up or slow down as our lifestyle changes? ‘Apparatus and Method for Time Displacement’ is a series of wearable devices that challenge our expectations of time and offers audiences to take control of their own experience. Join Experimenta Make Sense artist Antoinette J. Citizen as she investigates the idea of the ‘extreme present’ and demonstrates how to use her devices to affect visuals and audio perceptions.
Experimenta Make Sense is an exhibition that expresses the disconcerting and delightful world of the digital age. Both playful and challenging, this exhibition asks audiences to immerse their senses into a ‘thinking’, ‘feeling’ and ‘doing’ contemplation of what it is to be human in the technologically accelerating information society.
This is a special Seniors Festival Event, including morning tea. We welcome seniors (and their carers) to join us for a first-hand insight into media art in this engaging artist led session.
