Satellite: The Artist and Educator as Orbital Connectors

2024 Mid-America College Art Association Virtual Conference
Hosted by Auburn University
March 21–23 2024
Registration Link

Conference Theme

Invisible orbiters dispersed among the sky watch, collect, and report back on what they have witnessed. Artists and educators are satellites set on a polar-orbiting path, observing slivers of the world at a time, collecting data through tuned instruments, and sending out signals for others to intercept and interpret. We facilitate the linear to curve, distance to shrink, and information to transfer. In a world where distance is growing physically, politically, economically, and ideologically, artists and educators position themselves in the information space. We provide data points in an attempt to provoke, inspire, and transform the pieces of the world we interact with. We are a network of satellites distantly collaborating to build a higher resolution image of our world.

MACAA invites both professionals and students (graduate or undergraduate) to participate in conference sessions, workshops and our exhibition, which will be held virtually via Zoom.
