Telfair Museums continues to lead the conversation in art and technology with its 13th installment of the PULSE Art + Technology Festival. This year, the festival will take place from January 23-26 at Telfair’s Jepson Center. PULSE 2020 showcases artists and creatives who demonstrate how technology can either work against us or help us solve global problems. The multi-day event invites individuals of all ages to enjoy exciting exhibitions, screenings, lectures, workshops, and educational events. The exhibition Machines of Futility features interactive works that question technology’s usefulness, while installations in the museum’s TechSpace titled Second Nature connect virtual and augmented reality, and games with the natural world.
The festival kicks off on Wednesday, January 22 at 6pm with a panel moderated by PULSE Curator Harry Delorme and visual artists Neil Mendoza, Alicia Eggert and R. Luke Dubois. The artists will discuss thought provoking topics and explain how each use electronics as a medium to create works of art that inspire dialogue and self-reflection on our culture and the use of current technology.
