Media Arts and Technology (MAT) at the University of California, Santa Barbara is a transdisciplinary graduate program that fuses emergent media, computer science, engineering, electronic music, and digital art research, practice, production, and theory. The MAT department will showcase the cutting-edge research and new media artworks of our students, presented on June 1st at the Santa Barbara Center for Art, Science, and Technology (SBCAST) and on June 9th at UCSB Ealings Hall.
 
The Media Arts and Technology Program at UCSB (MAT@UCSB) presents latent•ville, the 2023 EoYS (End of Year Show), in two events:
 
6-9 pm June 1 at SBCAST
513 Garden St, Santa Barbara, CA 93101
 
and
 
6-9 pm June 9 at UCSB
University of California, Santa Barbara, Elings Hall, Mesa Rd, Santa Barbara, CA 93106
 
The MAT@UCSB theme this year, latent•ville, is a play on latent space, a central concept in machine learning, and Alphaville, a reference to the classic 60s movie that anticipated the advent of artificial intelligence. A -ville being a space where people commune, latent•ville is the latent space we live in now. As AI’s awesome and terrible power colors our lives and pervades our public and private spaces, and even the spaces of our imagination, we ask, what is art in latent•ville now?
 
Both End of Year Shows (EoYS) events will showcase students’ cutting-edge research and new media artworks and work from MAT courses.
 
The June 1st SBCAST event will feature the work of MAT students at the new MAT AlloplexStudio@SBCAST, with extensive new projection mapping constituting a spectacular electronic audiovisual concert. And Nimita’s cuisine!
The June 9th Elings event will feature open laboratories: transLAB, Experimental Visualization Lab, Expressive Computation Lab, plus new immersive experiences in MAT’s famous AlloSphere.
