The SIGGRAPH 2014 Art Gallery will gather and present 14 outstanding, critical, and innovative unique works and projects, incorporating its theme, “Acting in Translation.” While the essential aim of the Art Gallery is to provide a deeper insight into the relationships within art, science, technology, research, and societal developments, “Acting in Translation” concentrates on strong content and criticality in these works and projects, conveyed through the use of advanced technologies.
Curated by Basak Senova, “Acting in Translation” aims to revolve around the readings, responses, and perceptions of ‘the act of translation’ as a productive tool based on criticality. The participating artists are Paul L. Stout, Rachele Riley, Yunsil Heo, Hyunwoo Bang, Joseph Farbrook, Yoichi Ochiai, Yunsil Heo, Hyunwoo Bang, Inmi Lee, Kyle McDonald, Zohar Kfir, Sam Blanchard, Kirk Cameron, Robert Redfern, Sergio Bernales, Bo Li, Michelle Will, Hung-Ching Chang, Kelsey Farenholtz, Brandon Deaguero, Timmy Meyer, John Mooring, Ali Butt, Speculatorum Oculi, Erik Brunvand, Alon Chitayat, Jeff Ong, Emilio Vavarella, Fito Segrera, Burak Arikan, and Ed Konowal/GraphicsNet.
The Art Gallery will also feature one panel and four Talks with the artists along with an afternoon networking reception.
“The 2014 Art Gallery represents no single or homogenous approach, but a diverse display of artistic strategies," said Basak Senova, SIGGRAPH 2014 Art Gallery Chair. “Translation, as a term and as a tool, generates numerous potential fields for art production, which is why we selected it as this year’s theme and are thrilled to have these outstanding works and projects.”
The 2014 Art Gallery will take place in the West Building, Exhibit Hall A at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Access to this program can be purchased for as low as $75 USD at s2014.siggraph.org. A special opportunity for meeting with the artists will occur on Tuesday, 12 August during an afternoon reception sponsored by Leonardo/ISAST and The MIT Press.
Highlights from the SIGGRAPH 2014 Art Gallery:
Looking Glass Time
Artist: Yoichi Ochiai
“Looking Glass Time” aims to represent social media activities and their timelines with physical clock animation, without any recording media.
The Internet SteamGauge
Artist: Ed Konowal / GraphicsNet
Internet usage is typically measured in Mb/s (Megabits per second). “The Internet SteamGauge” takes the same data and translates it to a real-world gauge.
The Evolution of Science
Artist: Rachele Riley
The Evolution of Silence addresses the scale of damage brought about by 41 years of nuclear testing at the Nevada Test Site. The Web-based archive presents a non-linear map and interpretation of the area’s destruction, and an opportunity to explore this restricted desert landscape.

Deploying applications in hybrid cloud environments is hard work. Your team spends most of the time maintaining your infrastructure, configuring dev/test and production environments, and deploying applications across environments – which can be both time consuming and error prone. But what if you could automate provisioning and deployment to deliver error free environments faster? What could you do with your free time?

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
