The Department of Art & Art History at UNCW invites the UNCW and greater Wilmington community to participate in an evening of interdisciplinary, art and science collaboration.

Gene Felice II, the Department’s newest faculty member bridges his creative practice across art, science, education and design. Gene's hybrid practice grows at the intersection of nature and technology, developing interactive work using a variety of input and output sources such as bio and eco sensors, motion, sound and light. His projected video and animated imagery transform two dimensional surfaces and architectural structures into three-dimensional storytelling systems. He also employs ecologically minded materials through hybrid fabrication methods such as 3D printing, CNC milling & laser cutting, combining digital and analog technologies to create innovative 3-dimensional work. To learn more about his work and Coaction Lab, visit www.genefelice.com & www.coactionlab.org.

Aside from a variety of art and science inspired work, professor Felice will also be displaying his recent Iron Lotus Project from his 4 week residency in Alexandria Egypt, working with the U.S. Consulate, American Arts Incubator Program. 

The show will evolve throughout its duration, displaying additional work-in-progress, evening video projection mapping performances via the Mobile Coaction Lab and a series of Friday afternoon, creative technology workshop sessions. Times and dates of the workshops are listed above.
