ON! Handcrafted Digital Playgrounds is an exciting, interactive exhibition celebrating our intuitive attraction to play. ON! transforms the CAC galleries into a collection of playgrounds where creativity is limitless and experimentation is the norm. The exhibition features installations from some of the most creative minds breaking ground today–artists who are sought after by the entertainment industry, Silicon Valley and museums alike.
These artists personify the new reality of creative production today: genre-bending, creative ingenuity at its most fun. From hi-tech to analog, these artists use code and circuitry as adeptly as paper, ink and canvas. Their interactive installations, games, drawings and toys all engage the visitors’ imagination and encourage participation. Together they form a new kind of museum experience where the visitor is player, tinkerer, maker and collaborator. These are playgrounds, after all–so game on. This is the new recess. Now let’s play!
