Barnard IMATS and the Computational Science Center (CSC) are holding a competition for art + tech proposals that use the Cyber Visualization Wall in Milstein 516. This competition is open to all undergraduate students in all disciplines at Barnard and Columbia – winning submissions will receive a $500 grant to develop their proposals. Show us what you’ve got!

We want to see proposals that embrace the medium and capabilities of the Visualization Wall - remember it’s touch sensitive! Winning submissions should engage directly with the medium (the Visualization Wall) and theme (technology). You can use technology (through design programs, coding, or digital art) to create art or make artistic interventions and/or you can use art as a medium to explore technology, the impact of technology on society, or technological concepts. You can submit digital art, a game design, utilize the interactive/touch aspects of the panels, or find clever ways to subvert our expectations.

  • 6 interconnected (3x2), touch enabled panels
  • Panels can also be used individually, e.g. up to 6 discrete devices can be projected at a time
