Scope Sessions #84
Artist Talks & Media Salon
13.06.2019 6:30pm - 9pm
Thursday, June 13th 2019, SomoS hosts the 84th edition of the “Scope Sessions Artist’s Talks & Media Salon.” In this edition, VanTa and Automaton Lab will present their work, followed by an Q & A.
VanTa is an experienced developer, with a strong focus in the field of computer graphics. In his creations, he always tries to find a balance between geometry, abstraction, and chaos.
At the age of eight he left home and founded his own aerospace startup with very little venture capital, that operated from his parents’ porch. With a background in environmental science, his work revolves around the intersection between art, science, and technology. He loves when digital elements align with the real world; either in augmented reality overlays, projection mapping on architectural landmarks, or pixels floating in thin air. VanTa also performs as a VJ and musician in different locations and festivals around the world. When he finds the time, he teaches coding to designers and artists.

Automaton Lab is a collective of New Media artists with backgrounds from interactive media, creative coding, performance, installations, and design. It is Automaton Lab’s goal to strike a balance between artistic concept and aesthetics, while attempting to tackle topics from various interdisciplinary perspectives, be it social-political, design, relational or other.
In their presentation, Automaton Lab will give an overview of their projects, expanding on their driving ideas; their concept of mind and space,
and future projects.

Scope Sessions Artist’s Talks & Media Salon
Scope is a meeting point for the creative and the curious, a platform for sharing and learning in an informal setting. Each session, two guest artists are invited to present a project, a concept, a process or an experience. The presentations are short, around 30 minutes and unrestricted in form. Offering a variety of topics and approaches, Scope is about exposure, not for the artist, but for the audience.
