October 16 – November 22, 2015

Stimulus/Response/Affect explores varied ways artists engage the human body through sensorial, perceptual, chronological and spatial shifts, using sound and kinetic sculpture, interactive video, participatory games, augmented reality, social media and programmed software. Featuring: Sophia Brueckner, Cuppetelli and Mendoza, Brian Patrick Franklin and Chris Wille, Ben Grosser, Aaron Higgins, Meg Mitchell, Byron Rich and John Wenskovitch, Andrea Roberts, Brian Schrank, Brad Tober, Channel TWo: Adam Trowbridge and Jessica Parris Westbrook. Curated by Colleen Ludwig and Vagner M. Whitehead

These dynamic artworks engage the viewer as a participant, raising questions about self, relationships, surroundings and society, and provide the unique opportunity to experience and actively (re)consider the relevance and implications of innovative interactive contemporary art.  With this in mind, we also invite you to attend a special symposium in conjunction with the exhibition the day after the opening. Full-color catalogue available.


New Media in the Great Lakes Symposium, Saturday, October 17, 2015
This daylong accompanying symposium is organized in four thematic sessions that widen in scope from the personal to the social as the day progresses. All participating artists will be present.
