Berkeley Big Bang 08
June 1-3, Berkeley, CA
Join us for Berkeley Big Bang 08, three days of new media and art
hosted by the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive and the
Berkeley Center for New Media, timed to link with 01SJ: A Global
Festival of Art on the Edge, a new media art biennial taking place
June 4–8 in San Jose. Occurring together for the first time, these two
events combine to create one of the nation’s largest gatherings of new
media art, a week-long “big bang” of innovation and creativity.
The Berkeley Big Bang program will include a two-day symposium on new
media, art, science, and the body in partnership with Berkeley Center
for New Media and Leonardo: The International Society for the Arts,
Sciences and Technology; campus media lab demonstrations; and an
alternate reality game. Berkeley Big Bang is presented in tandem with
BAM/PFA exhibitions of work by media artists Trevor Paglen, Jim
Campbell, Lynn Hershman Leeson, and Scott Snibbe.
