Miami, anew is a student-produced art exhibit that combines virtual reality, data visualization, digital music, and print media to immerse audiences in Miami’s changing environment. As climate change and sea level rise threaten today’s quality of life, destroying the massive development that’s made many rich and forcing those that aren’t to move.
Curated by FIU professor Robert E. Gutsche, Jr. for the Art + Hack + Data Miami Media Art Weekend September 8 to 10, 2017, the student exhibit features virtual reality experiences within landlocked, Miami mangroves, wall-sized data visualizations of sea rise in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, and art that immerses viewers in the unseen of Miami’s submerging landscapes.
The event and exhibit will appear at the Pérez Art Museum Miami and Wynwood’s Bakehouse Art Complex, which is scheduled to be on temporary permanent exhibition there until November.
Miami, anew is a product of Florida International University’s Mobile Virtual Reality Lab within the university’s School of Communication + Journalism.
