Join UCSB Media Arts and Technology program for our End of Year Show, a presentation and celebration of this year’s research in electronic music, emergent media, computer science, engineering, and art. Together we can share in a transcendent experience as new art forms are born and cutting-edge expressive media is unleashed.

Our theme this year is Invisible Machine, representing the mechanism of inducing transformation in the world of Media Arts. At MAT, our community research is the art of the “invisible becoming visible” in every field, from revealing the abstracted processes between input and output of a machine, to turning the complicated scientific data into shapes and colors. As technologists and artists, we weave through this diverse research in novel ways, creating new works that transcend the present way we view the world. Our show is the product of this process, and we invite all to join us in its celebration.

The EoYS Invisible Machine exhibition features demonstrations, installations, performances, and concerts by over 50 student and faculty members at MAT, AlloSphere Research Facility, Experimental Visualization Lab, Four Eyes Lab, RE-Touch Lab, Systemics Lab, and transLAB.

Immerse yourself in the world of new media, with demonstrations and performances spanning computer graphics, robotics, data visualization, virtual reality, generative art and experimental music.

Seize your opportunity to tour UCSB’s Allosphere, open to the public for only two days a year.
