Constellations: The Universe is Watching
The Universe is Watching explores our fascination with watching and being watched. By the universe observing us through the light of the stars, breathing us into existence; by the cameras, mirrors, and sensors that surveil us, making us visible to the world, influencing our thought, perceptions, actions, and identity; and by the machines that increasingly study as they evolve to have agency, identity, and creativity.
In January 2023, a group of artists, technologists, architects, musicians, hackers, and engineers gathered for a weekend of art‐tech collaborative creative experiments at the CETI Lab at Portland State University—an exciting interdisciplinary creative weekend to bring unique light and sound pieces, immersive experiences, and performances to life.
