Vasilios Papaioannu, an assistant professor of film in the Department of Transmedia, will have his piece "N.1368597069" (USA/Greece/HD/2015) screened Sept. 28-Oct. 30 as part of the exhibition “Interventions: The Fuse Factory Electronic and Digital Arts Lab’s Juried Exhibition” at the Ohio State University’s Pearl Conard Art Gallery on the Mansfield Campus. Papaioannu directed the six-minute experimental project.
The exhibition includes artists’ works that explore how scientific methodology intervenes between art and science or inversely; how art concepts contribute toward scientific research; how technological interventions create artistic spectacles within the intersection of art and technology; the aesthetic discourses between the natural and technological-“unnatural”; and how artists can use technological interventions in which organic things integrate with inorganic mechanical systems and interspecies.
The Fuse Factory is an art and technology initiative based out of Columbus, Ohio, focused on cultivating artistic production, research and experimentation with digital media and electronic tools. "Interventions" is a group exhibition juried by Tyler Cann, associate curator of contemporary art at Columbus Museum of Art; Amy Youngs, associate professor of art & technology at the Ohio State University; Alison Colman, Fuse Factory founder and executive director; Kate Shannon, associate professor of art at Ohio State Mansfield; and Doo-Sung Yoo, new media artist and curator.
