What if we could hack the art in our community? In this inspiring talk, interactive artist Jen Lewin illuminates the ideas behind creating and experiencing art with others in the moment, and giving us a glimpse of the future of collaboration in public art.
Over the last 15 years Jen has honed her highly technical medium, fabricating large-scale interactive sculptures that combine light, sound and motion to encourage community interaction. Jen’s use of technology as a medium challenges popular conceptions of new media works and their limitations; she thinks beyond the traditional art exhibition to create an experience that brings vibrancy to neighborhoods, parks and public spaces. Jen’s design and multimedia work has been featured in publications such as National Geographic, Smithsonian, Wired, The New York Times, BBC News and The Straits Times. She also served as creative director for the Ceren Project and Ivee Project at The Sundance Laboratory for Advanced Computing in Design, as well as a lead designer for ITN in Palo Alto, Calif.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
