I’m a sessional Lecturer in the School of Art & Design and have had numerous solo exhibitions around Australia and been considered as a finalist for major national awards. This year I’m really excited to be the helping to co-ordinate COMP1720 from the art side of things. I’ll be explaining some art theory topics in the lectures, helping out in labs & generally helping make sure this course stays creative and fun.
I have a long-running collaboration with coders at the Research School of Computer Science (supported initially by a 2016 Vice-Chancellor’s College Visiting Artist Fellowship) exploring the hypothesis that digital art is made compelling when the work demonstrates an equal balance of human gesture to mechanical structure; that is, artwork as simultaneously human and machine generated. You can follow my latest work in this vein on Insta (look for #wigglesandgrids) or at https://www.tonycurran.net.
