Art Through Technology

The vast majority of the art exhibited in the galleries and museums of New York City is created using centuries-old technologies (paint on canvas, chisel and stone, etc.)  The same can be said of most "serious" music performed in this city, composed for the classic instruments of the orchestra.  Even rock music's electric guitar traces its beginnings back to the 1920s.

We love the ancient technologies!

Beyond the Silicon is a web tour of artistic endeavors (high, low, serious, pop, and other) created using novel or experimental technologies.

We'll start things off with one of our own.  This video was originally posted in December 2006 as an episode of the Silicon Soul Show.
