Immersive Artist Gabe Barcia-Colombo – Collectors


– So I’m really interested
in how we take stories off of a screen and bring
them into the real world. My name is Gabriel Barcia-Colombo, and I’m an artist and professor. This piece is called Collectors. It’s about two digital art collectors that are collecting images of the people in the gallery. The piece looks at people, and it assesses their facial reaction, so it can tell if you’re happy.
It can tell if you’re sad. And so it creates a unique
title of the artwork for you. This piece is kind of personal. You may feel rejected by
a work of art suddenly. So hopefully this piece makes you engage with the world around you again and think about maybe
how we look at people, how we interact with people and how we look at art. (upbeat music)
