Tech it out!

Tech it out!

Arts Space Wodonga is proud to present a youth focused exhibition featuring digital media works from young local artists.

Tech it out! will run from Friday, March 10, to Thursday, April 13, and highlights the diverse ways in which young artists are using technology to enhance their artistic practice.

The exhibition will allow visitors the chance to interact with technology in a variety of ways, whether it be experimenting with Chris Carter’s Light Clock application, using body movements to relate to an interactive wall or creating your very own stop-motion animation film.

One of the young artists (Chris Carter) is a young engineer with a fascination for art and design. He created Light Clock using open-source code to display the lights on the clock and later added Wi-Fi to alter the colours – something visitors can also have a go at.

Another artist (Tyler Grace) is a fine art photographic artist who uses imagery to tell stories that often evoke emotional responses. Many of his works draw upon his own life and his exposure to a chronic illness.

Students from Tallangatta Secondary College have developed a series of lightwave projections as part of an Artist in Schools project that helped them understand their place within their hometown and also as global citizens. The projections focus on issues such as labels, homelessness and bullying.

Helen Newman is an award-winning Australian filmmaker whose work over the last 15 years has taken her around the globe gathering stories from the inspiring to the heartbreaking. Several of her youth-focused films will feature in the exhibition.

The exhibition will be officially opened by 2017 Young Citizen of the Year Jye McBurnie on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 6pm (to coincide with SoundOut youth festival and National Youth Week).
