Art in Wilson Libraries
The Art in the Libraries 2010 exhibition Tangible Digital Matter celebrates digital media in the work of undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff from the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota. All of the work in some way is shaped, affected, manipulated or informed by digital technology. Digital prints, ink jet and laser pieces, mixed media works, and installations integrate simple and complex digital facets with fabric, ceramics, photography, drawing, painting, and sculpture.
The theme of the exhibit is particularly timely for the University Libraries. As books and information find their way more and more in digital form, researchers are, like artists, inventing and journeying through new paths of research praxis. Not only is the path of research and discovery new, but the end products are, also, finding new form and born digital. Tangible Digital Matter is a reflective and metaphoric show for the Libraries, inviting researchers to contemplate the visual manifestations of digital information as it integrates traditional and technologically formed media.
