Black Box Project

Black Box Projects, led by Beall Center Artistic Director David Familian, will focus on the research and development of responsive environments, installations and sculptures by artists who will be working collaboratively with various research departments at UC Irvine.

Recognizing the initial focus of the Beall Center to exhibit new forms of art and also to become a center for research, The Beall Center will initiate Black Box Projects in 2011.  Black Box Projects is a 2-year program focusing on the research and development of responsive environments and sculptures by media artists who will work collaboratively with various research departments at UC Irvine. This initiative will provide an opportunity for artists to have access to the latest research to further their practice, and allow the Beall Center to exhibit high quality work while functioning as a center for research and discourse in media arts and new technologies. Black Box Projects will broaden the Beall Center’s research component and further engage its relationships with UC Irvine’s Claire Trevor School of the Arts, UC Irvine’s larger academic community, and practitioners in the field of art and technology.
