"The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed." - C.G. Jung

"PTSD: Post-Technomatic Similacral DIYconstructions," is an interactive exhibition of the artworks of four national and internationally exhibiting artists who explore political, economic, social, gender-based, and cultural topics through interactive and kinetic technologies. The exhibition, in the Linda K. Jordan Gallery in Washburn Arts Building, runs from February 3 through 28. The opening reception with the artists is on Thursday, February 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. 

Artists are:

  • BLAKE FALL-CONROY who is presently a Robotics Engineer at International Climbing Machines, Inc. in Ithaca, N.Y.
  • KRISTEN ANCHOR who is a Digital Media Specialist at The Digital Media Center at  Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md.

The world around us has become more automated and intelligent, and in many instances these automated systems carry out the desires and directives of commercial and institutional entities. Dense amounts of information are being collected from devices in public space or cell phones, stored, and transmitted to virtual storage systems that are sometimes being shared without public approval.  "PTSD: Post-Technomatic Similacral DIYconstructions" should bring you delight, while profoundly impacting the way you view hardware, software, and network technology as media for expression.
