Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) announces the return ofTeknopolis™, the interactive multi-space digital arts showcase for all ages which debuted to sold-out crowds last year.
The two-week-long digital playground is designed to inspire creativity and explore new frontiers in interactive technology. Featuring both local and international digital artists and technologists—including Google Spotlight Studios and Fingerlab—the selected installations use technology to inspire the same exploratory and creative impulses we satisfy when we set foot on a stage or grab a musical instrument.
Teknopolis™ takes over the BAM Fisher Building once again, offering an expanded four-floor showcase of installations and displays. The Fishman Space will present NYC premieres of eight motion-based and touch-based interactive installations by San Francisco-based artists Marpi and ecco screen. Marpi’s Binary Garden populates six large touchscreens with faceless digital tiles which respond to the user’s touch and voice, and can be manipulated in real-time via app by users anywhere in the world. The balcony of the Fishman Space will feature Light Orchestra, a cascading interactive wall of 1,250 full-color LEDs stretching 20 feet from the ceiling.
