MS in Information Webinar Series: “Art as Information”

Wednesday, January 15, 2020

12:00 PM-1:00 PM

Drexel University's College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) presents its third event in its new monthly MS in Information Webinar Series:

“Art as Information”

Wednesday, January 15, 2020

12:00 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. EST

Abstract: With digital technology have come new art forms, broadly called information arts. But if information is something we can learn from, something that shapes us, then all art has always been informational. This explains how we can come away from certain works of art feeling that we've learned something, even if art doesn't inform us in the way that Wikipedia articles and the news do. In this webinar, Drexel CCI Assistant Professor Tim Gorichanaz, PhD will discuss what it means to see art as information: for artists, information professionals, and the general public.

This online event is free and open to all.

Participants will receive login information for the Zoom meeting upon registration.

This session will be recorded and available for later viewing on Drexel CCI's YouTube channel.
