This year’s theme for the Gladstone Hotel’s annual Nuit Blanche celebration Fly By Night is Into the Wild. Nuit Blanche at the Gladstone Hotel brings together the raucous creations of makers from all disciplines. Temporary and site-specific installations by dozens of artists, designers and performers are showcased throughout the hotel in this 12-hour tour-de-force exhibition. We will be giving you a little look at what’s to come over the next week.
Room 205: a WIRED vision by Alek Grguric – a WIRED vision is a compelling sensory experience that combines the tactile nature of print publishing with the limitless expanse of digital media. Using LCD monitors and speakers, custom software continuously displays each magazine’s introduction spread, “reads” the associated visionary quote via computer-generated voice, and plays an ethereal music soundtrack. Alek explores methods and techniques that coalesce digital media, interactivity, and emerging technologies into the media arts. He works in the virtual and physical realm, often combining varying media types, design, logic, mathematics, and programming in order to execute the final presentation which can be static, dynamic, or interactive.
