Event description

Description

Join artist Antoinette J. Citizen for morning tea and a demonstration of her wearable art devices that challenge our perceptions of time.

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 session with a visual artist.

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: International Triennial of Media Art, RMIT Gallery 2 October – 11 November 2017, 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.
