BAM’s interactive arts showcase Teknopolis™ returns for its fourth year with a program designed to inspire creativity, connect with the future, and embolden a renewed sense of play for all ages. Named for the Greek words Tekne (craft or art) and Polis (ideal city), Teknopolis offers the latest in technology-fueled art and participatory environments. It features work by leading artists and technologists who are pushing the artistic boundaries of VR, AR, mixed reality (MR), 360° films, as well as sensor-based technology and displays. This year’s three-week-long showcase includes 20 highly interactive installations and six 360° films. Artists from 12 countries are presenting their work, which combines art, film, music, and technology, over five levels of the BAM Fisher building. Many of the exhibitions allow participants to interact with the installations directly.
