Carbon meets Silicon II


Launch Event


Monday 11 September 2017, 6pm

Oriel Sycharth Gallery, Wrexham Glyndwr University



Carbon meets Silicon II is an exhibition and symposium that forms part of the 7th International conference on Internet Technologies and Applications (ITA 17) held at Wrexham Glyndwr University.


The exhibition theme uses carbon and silicon as metaphors for the changing face of art practice in the digital age. Carbon references the materiality of the art object and silicon references how an artworks physical presence is questioned in the light of new media, resulting in the digital or virtual bringing artists closer to scientists and engineers.

The focus for this year is Arts/Science/Technology Collaborations and the exhibition brings together the work of fifteen diverse artists, scientists and technologists working in a range of media who have all in some way collaborated via ideas with specialist outside of their immediate field of enquiry.

The Carbon Meets Silicon II launch event will feature live interactive performances.
