Art + Technology is a collaboration between Khalifa University and
Abu Dhabi Art. The initiative first launched
in 2017 and brings leading artists together with students from the university,
for a series of workshops that explore ways of making art through the use of
Abu Dhabi Art 2017 Art + Technology Workshops:
In this workshop, students created an artwork that combined
real-time electronic music and visual images using oscilloscope or laser
generator projection. The artist shared his methodology which creates
meditation through an electronic art form.
The artist worked with the students to build a circuit exploring
sound production. At the end of the workshop, the students created a group
sound piece. Magdi Mostafa introduced the students to sound as an art medium
that contemporary artists use in their work.
This artist led workshop gave the students an opportunity to
create an interactive artwork using technology and dry ice. In addition, the
students were able to create prints on canvas which were then exhibited at Abu
Dhabi Art 2017 in Manarat Al Saadiyat.
