Exhibition preview: 'Engineering Utopia'

Jim Fischer
Columbus Alive

This three-segment exhibition examines the ways in which artists and engineers interact and support one another's work.

First, there are materials documenting restoration efforts on work originally done by Chris Burden, whose work focuses on the interactions between art and engineering, and Ken Goldberg, a dual practice artist and robotics researcher. A second segment includes films made during a landmark collaboration at Bell Laboratories in the 1960s and '70s that saw artists in residence support and expand on the work of the engineers at work there. Lastly, there are images from the Ohio State University's Art and Technology program.
