TechnoSonics XII: Light (September 22-23, 2011), a two-day themed program of digital arts. Invited guests and members of our own community offered creative works, research, and theoretical perspectives on “light” – as sonic cause, correlate and effect, as metaphor, as counterpoint, and more. Featured composer Jeff Herriott (University of Wisconsin) gave a special colloquium, “Simplification: From Music to Life” on September 22 at 7:00 pm in the Kaleidoscope Room in Newcomb Hall. The concert, in the Rotunda Dome Room, featured his music as well as compositions by UVA composers Matthew Burtner, Ted Coffey and Judith Shatin.

The exhibition of recent sculpture by artists who have spent formative time in the U.Va. Sculpture Community reflects both the richness of contemporary sculpture and the diversity of the community. While eclectic in material, style, and approach, these artists are unified by a shared interest in making art that is informed by the past, rooted in the present, and filled with the unexpected creating of a bridge to the future.
