The theme of the SIGGRAPH 2014 Art Gallery is Acting in Translation. In the sea of ever-changing conditions of multiple realities, there is no single or homogenous approach, but a diversity of resisting mechanisms and artistic strategies. Therefore translation, as a term and as a tool, generates plenty of potential fields for art production in disconnected trajectories. Furthermore, these fields have the capability to cover and merge with other fields of knowledge.

Art Gallery Video Preview

Translation indicates a detached and forward movement from the source. It is also a freeing act, which paradoxically contains a burden of responsibility for the source. Therefore, this movement has limits and fine borderlines, yet it could designate "more" than the source. Translation is a call for other realities and also another way to see other realities. Translation can also blend "fact" with fiction by blurring the difference between them. In this vein, "translation" as a term could be interpreted in multiple ways on different layers of perception. While this term indicates a mechanical act, it may also refer to global and local societal developments such as resistance movements, alternative economies, information leaks, migration flows, mobility, etc.

Acting in Translation presents 2D and 3D artworks, interactive systems, electronically mediated augmented reality, mixed-media installations and performances, web-based art, responsive media, time-based works, works using digital communities and social media, robotics, touch-screens, wearable art, mediated music, sound, and audio artworks.
