"In Human Nature, I explore what happens when we step back to view ourselves within the expansiveness of nature and time. I consider how this scale realignment can change our perspective, offer context, reveal absurdities, and evoke humility, insights, and awe.

Trees, Time, and Technology: 

Ancient Wisdom for a Future Ecology

Excited to share that The Getty just announced that Ken's and my new exhibition will be part of their PST Art: Art & Science Collide initiative at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles opening fall of 2024. 

 

This new exhibition builds off both of our work: my films and Human Nature artwork and Ken's work at the intersection of art & science. You can watch The Getty's video about the initiative here, and read about it in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and Flaunt Magazine.

PREVIOUS EXHIBITIONS AND SHOWS

This live documentary "spoken cinema" performance by Tiffany Shlain takes the audience on a riveting journey across the past, present, and future of the relationship between humanity and technology. Incorporating live narration, mesmerizing visuals, an  evocative soundscape, and audience engagement, Dear Human is a one-of-a-kind experience that invites the audience to think deeply about how technology is both amputating and amplifying our humanity, and how to stay human as we pave our way into the future.

How do the images around us affect our brains? How do they influence the ghost in the machine? In this exhibit, visitors will enter a photo booth and put on a portable brain scanner — a low resolution EEG that “uses sensors to tune into electrical signals produced by the brain.” They will then be shown film sequences of both compassion and violence. We will take the data from the scanner and create artistic interpretations of the patterns our brains experience for each. Visitors will leave with a unique photo strip from: The Brain Portrait. Read the press release.

UCSF’s Sandler Neurosciences Center partnered artists with neuroscientists. Shlain was partnered with Dr. James Doty from Stanford and premiered the art installation Brain Portrait as part of the Mind Matters art exhibition. Watch a short clip about it here.

An interactive art installation with video projection, step plate, custom electronics, and software.

Ken Goldberg and Tiffany Shlain (electronics design by Danny Bazo)

Smashing is an interactive new media installation where motion triggers audio and video. Visitors are invited to make a silent vow and then to stomp on a floor plate. The impact triggers a projected slow-motion video of breaking glass accompanied by a musical track that responds to the quality of each impact.

Shattered glass has punctuated crises and transformations through history and across cultures from Kristallnacht to the Watts Riots to the breaking of a glass at the conclusion of the Jewish wedding ceremony. Smashing debuted on opening night of the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco and was exhibited at the Pulse NY Contemporary Art Fair, in New York
