Ethan Edwards is a Researcher with the Experiments in Art and Technology Program at Nokia Bell Labs. He coordinates large-scale collaborations between artists and engineers and works to find new forms of human communication.
Technological art thrives when many individual specialities and systems work together. Immersive installations require sound, visual, cameras, IOT sensors, and any number of interactive systems to communicate and share data in real time. At the Nokia Bell Labs Experiments in Art and Technology program, Ethan has been part of building many performances and installations which rely on different varieties of networking technology in a number of different presentation contexts.
Ethan Edwards will share best practices for tying novel systems together, present E.A.T.’s work in this field including new Bell Labs inventions, and explore the future of large-scale artworks which rely on our networks.
