Technology-Driven Design or Design-Driven Technology? John Rothenberg and Eric Gunther will discuss recent work from their art and technology studio, Sosolimited. From real-time data visualization to physical installations to social-media analytics, their work lies at the intersection of new technology and age-old creative techniques. Eric and John will discuss how they attempt to take advantage of both worlds, without letting either one dominate.
About Sosolimited: Sosolimited is an art and technology studio founded in 2003 by Justin Manor, John Rothenberg, and Eric Gunther. The three met at MIT where they collectively studied physics, computer science, architecture, arts and music. They are joined by Lauren McCarthy and Sam Kronick and are based in Boston and San Diego. Today their practice operates at the boundary of art, design, experience and information. Sosolimited creates interactive installations, applications, and live performances. These projects incorporate elements of dynamic typography, video manipulation, computer vision, sensor technologies and sound design. Sosolimited performed ReConstitution, an award-winning live remix of the US Presidential Debates. Past clients include IBM, HBO, LG, Cirque du Soleil, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, L'Oreal, Honda, and the Nobel Peace Center. The studio has performed and exhibited artwork at Ars Electronica, Transmediale, Walker Art Center, Shanghai Biennial, ICA Boston, and the Cartier Foundation.
