Techniques to coalesce digital media, interactivity, and emerging technologies.
I am exploring methods and techniques to coalesce digital media, interactivity, and emerging technologies into the media arts. I work in both the virtual and physical realm, often combining varying media types, design, logic, mathematics, and programming in order to execute the final presentation which can be static, dynamic, or interactive. Although my themes and subjects are varied, my central motivation is to constructively utilize technology in the presentation of a divergent perspective on the physical world, be it to expose or to enlighten. BIO Alek Grguric has been producing interactive digital media in Toronto, Ontario, CANADA for over 20 years. His stimulating, educational, and imaginative projects have captivated audiences at the 1992 Universal Expo in Sevilla Spain, the National Archives of Canada, the Bata Shoe Museum, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Canada Science and Technology Museum, and Ottawa‚Äôs Capital Infocentre. Alek's media arts practice began in 2010 with a collaboration on the interactive digital media installation "H2Geneous" for Propeller as part of their official Nuit Blanche participation - Face it Head On: Self-Portrait Redefined. Since then Alek has exhibited with Propeller, The Latcham Gallery, and The Invisible Dog Art Center, along with online exhibits at Getty Images mishmash and The Celeste Network, and a second collaboration for Propeller's 2011 Nuit Blanche participation - Intersecting Messages.
