BioPresence, Department of Art, Art + Technology is an art exhibition about noticing and sensing all the living things on The Ohio State University campus and the local urban environment. At scales large and small, BioPresence acknowledges and celebrates the value of all life; birds, raccoons, bees, bacteria, trees, and the intertwined symbiosis that makes the Ohio State campus a unique urban ecosystem that involves human and non-human species. This themed, new media exhibition includes animations, robotic art, internet art, tactical media, sound works, maps, digital art, installation, video and algorithmic approaches to sensing and representing non-human beings. It will be held on The Ohio State University main campus in Hopkins Hall Gallery, Hopkins Hall, and the Mote 078 Galleries on High Street, in Columbus, Ohio.
The exhibition begins at Mote Galleries on November 16, 2015 with selected, invited artists. From December 10 through 16, BioPresence will expand into a large-scale exhibition in Hopkins Hall Gallery and throughout the building.
A reception will be held in the lobby of Hopkins Hall at 5pm, Wednesday, December 9, 2015 in conjunction with the Department of Art Open House.
