“When we say expanded cinema we actually mean expanded consciousness." - Gene Youngblood

Within each medium of art making, the boundaries of what is possible are constantly being pushed forward. Techniques such as projection mapping, also known as spatialized augmented reality, can serve to alter the audience’s perception of the artwork in relation to reality. This technique allows artists working with media to break the form of the flat rectangle, whether via projection or a physical screen. It creates new potentials for exploring relationships between projected light, form, and space. Expanded cinema also alters our experience of digital media beyond the role of passive observer and transforms the viewing space into an active environment where the viewer becomes a participant in the creation of meaning. Featured works were created during the course VIS 145B: Time and Process: Digital Media II in the exploration of new ways of working with digital media, projection mapping, and physical computing. These works seeks to explore concepts related to new ways of engaging with technologies as our concepts of “reality” expand beyond the binary of digital and analog existence.

Featured Artists: Amber Lord, Hayley Matsumoto, Rozanna Marie Lescano, Tralton Bellings II, Todd Everett, Holly Johnson, David Gavino Juarez, Christiane Pham, FRI Garcia, Jose Quintero, and Hongjing Zhu
