Opening reception: May 17 at 6:30 pm
How can environmental health be supported by new media art projects? At this opening reception, we will exhibit the results of the month-long American Arts Incubator workshops and community project development focused on this global challenge. Four community artist teams will present their new media art projects to a panel of local experts. In addition, American artist and workshop leader Michael Kuetemeyer will premiere a solar-powered Time Lens installation. The projects explore the ways that immersive 360 Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality media technologies can create interactive experiences that lead us on a path to a sustainable future. Through smart phones, we can explore these new worlds that address the environmental challenges of plastic waste, water pollution, global warming and preserving precious Cambodian forests.
The American Arts Incubator program in Cambodia is an international creative exchange program managed by ZERO1 in partnership with Bophana Center. The program is sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh and the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
