Teknopolis 2017 at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) (New York)

February 25 - March 12

Curated by BAM Education

Algorithms ignite and formulas are felt in this stellar showcase of interactive technology. BAM’s first-ever tech takeover features three floors of innovative installation pieces that bridge the arts and digital media to inspire kids and parents alike.

VIRTUAL ADVENTURE ROOM
Curated by Future of Storytelling
Take a virtual reality dive into fantasy forests, office cubicles, artist’s studios, and two original VR films in this room full of immersive technology, where paintings come to 3D life and everyone’s the hero of their own story. Featuring Google Tilt Brush, Job Simulator, Quiver, Wuwu, Rain or Shine, Turning Forest and INVASION!

XYZT
ABSTRACT LANDSCAPES
Adrien M & Claire B
Letters blow like leaves off trees, shifting sands respond to your lightest touch, and clouds mold to your shadow in this series of 10 dreamlike installations, each a unique encounter with a different digital landscape.

LUMARCA
Matt Parker, Josh Holtsford
With just a computer, a projector, some strands of string, and a Microsoft Kinect system, this deceptively simple installation creates your digital avatar and launches it into 3D space.

POP N’ LOCK DANCE MACHINE
Catshrine
Karaoke for the movement-inclined. This fun-filled installation allows participants to select their dance, choose some animated backup performers, and put on a show to the hottest tunes.

EXP. INST. RAIN.
Balam Soto
Part instrument and part installation, this tactile experience gives users an opportunity to “play” sound and light together by touching different points on a wireless cube.
