The Art Institute of Charlotte in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Michael Wirth
From projected artificially-intelligent drawing bots and video tracking to printed vector graphics and paintings, Pixelated, by Charlotte, NC-based digital artist Michael Wirth will be the featured exhibit from June 1-30, 2006, at the Elizabeth M. "Libby" Guinan Gallery at The Art Institute of Charlotte.
Wirth is an Interactive Media Design instructor at The Art Institute of Charlotte. The artificially-intelligent drawing "bots" is one in which the computer draws its own pictures on a large screen. Since it draws on its own, it is considered to be artificially intelligent.
In his work, Wirth explores the pixel (one of the tiny boxes that make up an image on the computer screen) as an intelligent, interactive and aesthetic form and gaming. Wirth is a digital artist and educator originally from New York City who now resides in Charlotte. Pixelated invites gallery visitors to play with the many interactive and exciting pieces on display. The work spans many media, from canvas to digital prints to screen-based projection.
