Lorado Taft Lectureship on Art: Steve Ciampaglia and Kerry Richardson
The Plug-in Studio is a socially engaged new media artist collective. Collaborating with youth and families in diverse Chicago communities, the Plug-in Studio makes video games, interactive kinetic sculpture, augmented reality graffiti, soft circuits, and other art with technology. Projects incorporate programming, engineering, and design in a critical context. The Plug-in Studio, founded by Steve Ciampaglia and Kerry Richardson, redefines art curriculum as technological, critical, contemporary, and relevant. Introducing creative computing, programming, and robotics to laypeople, children, and adolescents creates opportunities to become critical producers of programmable media (apps, video games, digital animations, and electronic toys).
