This interdisciplinary lecture and workshop will highlight the ways in which contemporary artists meld old and new technologies. We'll begin with a guided tour of the AAHD Faculty Triennial exhibition, stopping to discuss pieces that blur the line between science and art. Afterwards, participants will try their hand at creating their own tech-infused embroidery pieces using LED lights. Prerequisites include the ability to hand sew basic embroidery stitches. This electrifying experience is led by Dr. Stephanie E. Vasko, an artist, design historian, and managing director of the MSU Center for Interdisciplinarity. The 2021 MSU Department of Art, Art History, and Design Faculty Triennial is on view Aug. 7 – Dec. 19 at the MSU Broad Art Museum.
