Overclocked computers have been configured to run at faster speeds than intended. Overclocking can lead to instability in the system and unpredictable behavior. Overclocking is an act of pushing computers for more speed, while it is also a metaphor for high tech low brow techniques of hacking to wrest control from computer engineers. Overclocking can reference the dream of a higher-performance computer as well as the nightmare of runaway technological growth at the expense of biological and ecological systems. Now fueled by new forms of artificial intelligences that allow machines to upgrade themselves, who might be holding the joystick?
This semester, students in the Art & Technology courses – ranging from animation, digital imaging, moving image art, and 3D modeling, to robotics – have created individual and group artworks related to this theme and they will be presenting them in this juried exhibition.
OverClocked is organized by Ken Rinaldo and Amy Youngs.
