Processes. Loops. Glitch. Noise. Feedback. Nostalgia. Sustainability. World building. An ecosystem of ecosystems. This year’s show, My ______ is an Ecosystem (said “my blank is an ecosystem”) features a selection of art, workshops, discussions, and performances that explore the former ideas in many ways.

From interactive installations to video art, and audiovisual performances to sculpture, this exhibition features artists using live coding, artificial intelligence, custom electronics and software, repurposed electronics and e-waste, permacomputing, and more.

The title of the show refers to the relationships these featured artists build with their imaginations and tools. An alternative name for this show could be “This is an ecosystem,” referring to this collection of work, the event, and the community of artists involved.
