Art & Technology: Gettin’ It On (Event #3)

Saturday September 15, 7-8:30pm

The Project Room presents the final results of this three-part experiment in bringing artists and technologists together to meet, talk, and make! The work presented during Gettin’ it On will be based on the topic “Debris and Value,” which came about during the first two events. Participants will work together creatively and constructively to demonstrate proof-of-concepts and present these ideas to an audience and two special guest panelists. A presented idea might be a website, an object, a performance, or some other kind of prototype. So join us to see what’s been made!

Special Guests:

Donald Byrd- Tony Award nominated choreographer (“The Color Purple”, 2006), and Artistic Director of Seattle’s Spectrum Dance Company.

Sarah Novotny- Chief Information Officer for the Seattle-based gaming company, Meteor Entertainment, and Founder of the database company Blue Gecko.


This event is part of TPR’s summer topic, Solutions.

Participants (L-R): Writer Lesley Hazelton, Writer and Art Critic Jen Graves, and CEO of Potavida Charlie Matlack in discussion at Speed Dating (Event #1)


More about the Art & Technology experiment:

Event #1 was Speed Dating, in which ten artists and ten technologists went on six-minute “dates” while ten “chaperones” tweeted their observations. Read the Twitter highlights here.

Event #2 was Dinner & A Movie, during which the participants discussed a topic of their choosing from Event #1 in front of an audience.

Now, they will come together one last time to make something…
