    Device Art 2.006

    The term “Device_art” signifies an artistic production based on creative use of new or oldtechnologies and includes mechanisms based on analogue or digital technology, concepts basedon creative or resourceful use of media, robots, archaic devices, kinetic-optic works, interactiveprojects… “Device_art” is the name of a cultural and artistic performance which blurs the boundaries between art, technology and design thus offering a different way of understanding art and its relationship with technology and vice versa.

    In 2004, together with the curator duo from Zagreb - KONTEJNER | the bureau for modern artpractices – we organized the first international exhibition “Device_art” with the aim to initiate, map
    and contextualize artistic practice which comes into existence with the help of modern technology.The exhibition garnered a lot of public interest and turned out to be a great success.

    This year “Device_art” was spatially and conceptually broadened, which means that the Multimedia Institute in Zagreb and the Blasthaus Gallery from San Francisco got involved with the project.This means the exhibition turned into a several days long event which starts with the exhibition and performances in the Galženica Gallery and continues and ends in the Tvornica Jedinstvo in Zagreb with an exhibition and lectures dedicated to the relationship between art and technology. Also, in November this year the “Device_art” exhibition will be presented in the Boca Gallery and the RXGallery in San Francisco.
