The Media Arts and Technology Program at UCSB (MAT@UCSB) presents latent•ville, our 2023 EoYS (End of Year Show), in two events:
513 Garden St, Santa Barbara, CA 93101
Elings Hall, University of California, Santa Barbara, 93106
Our theme this year, latent•ville, is a play on latent space, a central concept in machine learning, and Alphaville, a reference to the classic 60s movie that anticipated the advent of artificial intelligence. A -ville being a space where people commune, latent•ville is the latent space we live in now. As AI's awesome and terrible power colors our lives and pervades our public and private spaces, and even the spaces of our imagination, we ask, what is art in latent•ville now?
Both EoYS events will showcase our students' cutting-edge research and new media artworks and work from our MAT courses.
Media Arts and Technology (MAT) at the University of California, Santa Barbara, is a transdisciplinary graduate program that fuses emergent media, computer science, engineering, electronic music, architecture and design, and digital art research, practice, production, and theory.
