Daniel Vogel: Siftor + My Name is Owen

8 March to 28 April

Artist and computer scientist Daniel Vogel presents two new, large-scale digital artworks revealing aspects of the Owens Art Gallery itself. Siftor harnesses subtle body movements of gallery visitors to interact with a wall-sized visualization of thousands of works of art in the Owens collection. A window projection, entitled My Name is Owen, is a pseudo-random text forming a one-sided conversation with a personification of the Owens website. Leveraging Vogel's inter-disciplinary practices, these installations also function as data gathering experiments exploring emerging research questions in Human-Computer Interaction. Daniel Vogel is currently a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow in the Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo.
