New Media Curation (NMC) is a move towards understanding the curation of technological artworks. From action/response works supported by floorpads, to laser or image recognition installations, to generative and augmented works, NMC can assist you in facilitating, administering, and actualizing your exhibition both nationally and internationally.

This year’s art exhibition for Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interactions is inspired by a hopeful co-mingling between art and technology with the site being our future bodies, our future selves. The idea of a palindrome, a phrase that is the same spelled forwards and backwards, nods to the idea of meeting in the middle. Transhumanism, cyborgs, engineering experiments, and designed interactive engagements have existed in past science fiction, film and literature, often pointing to a dystopic future. What we aim to present here is a collection of works by experimental artists and performers who congregate in the present but draw on ideas of the future through aesthetics of the past. 

What emerges is a landscape encoded with two-way messages and filled with two-way journeys. Visitors tthe gallery can lose themselves in an infinity mirror, read chalk messages from a robot, transmit portraits of themselves, travel into paintings through virtual reality, transport their mindsets with scent, a pulsating heart or projected aura, rock in tandem with a hidden collaborator and dance with distributed and autonomous robotic roller skates. 

Join us in this futuristic blast from the past, where the possibilities are endless and optimistic, but not quite polished. It is a future that is Never odd or eveN.
