Although electronic art practices are widely spread, it is still a challenge for curators, museographers and artists to show, store, restore and preserve electronic artworks. Join SDAI for a panel discussion and networking mixer at San Diego City College with Justin Manor, Roberto Romero-Molina and Francisco Eme as they explore the challenges of their field.
Justin Manor is a co-founding partner at Sosolimited, an interactive design studio with offices in Boston and San Diego. He focuses on the creative applications of new technologies in entertainment, architecture, and communication. Most notably, Sosolimited has created Twitter driven lightshows, an algorithmic clothing line, and a chandelier that tells us about resource scarcity. The studio has performed and exhibited artwork internationally at festivals and museums including Ars Electronica, Transmediale, The Walker Art Center, Cooper Hewitt, Shanghai Biennial, and the ICA Boston. Justin is a graduate of the MIT Media Lab, and holds degrees in Media Arts & Physics.
Roberto Romero-Molina is a visual and sound artist working on both sides of the United States-Mexico border. Originally trained as a painter, his work with sound and electronic mixed media takes a distinctly visual approach, engaging space and design as essential elements of his multisensory installations. His work explores the relationships between experience and representation, occurrence and memory, and perception and thought.
Francisco Eme (Mexico City, MX and San Diego, CA) creates electroacoustic compositions, multimedia installations, interventions and performances that immerse the audience into a world rich in symbols and poetics. Interested in the everyday situations of life and reflecting on social interactions in the world today, His works have been presented across México, United States, England, Spain, France, Italy, Czech Republic, Canada, Colombia, Argentina and El Salvador. Francisco uses technology in a way that speaks to the most essential human emotions. Francisco Currently works as a curator at The Front Arte Cultura in San Ysidro CA.
