Join ONE Lab contributor, RISD Critic, and Digital Media professor Eric Forman for a discussion of his work at the intersection of art, design, and technology!
Eric is a New York-based artist working with interactive installations and responsive sculpture. He develops his own circuits and software to create objects and spaces that are aware of their environment and can dynamically respond to it. His work crosses boundaries between fine art, design, and robotics – combining the technical rigor of engineering with the open-ended exploratory nature of the art experience. Eric’s creations employ modalities of interactivity not found in dominant forms of new media: subtle, slow, thoughtful, perhaps disturbing. His work gives us the magical and exhilarating qualities of the new, yet also plays on our uneasy fascination with the intersections of human and technology.
