Listen to art at the Bay Area Discovery Museum with new Artist-in-Residence Marco Pinter

Pinter combines cutting-edge computer technology and art in interactive exhibit

The Bay Area Discovery Museum has announced Marco Pinter as the newest Artist-in-Residence in its ongoing Artist-in-Residence program.

An artist and computer scientist, Marco Pinter connects technology, engineering, art, science, movement and music in his pieces and performances. From October through December as the Bay Area Discovery Museum’s Artist-in-Residence, Pinter will develop “Symphonic Picnic,” an interactive exhibit that uses computer vision technology to translate art into music. As part of the exhibition, visitors will be invited to create their own shapes in a variety of colors and work with Pinter to witness how subtleties in their design affect sound.

"We are thrilled to have artist Marco Pinter to the Bay Area Discovery Museum as part of our Artist-in-Residence program,” said Karyn Flynn, CEO of the Bay Area Discovery Museum. “Pinter’s incorporation of technology and engineering in his work is a great segue into the Museum’s forthcoming exhibition set to open in early 2016, an early childhood Fab Lab that will provide children with the computer-based innovation, design and fabrication tools to bring their ideas to life."

The Bay Area Discovery Museum's Artist-in-Residence program engages artists of all types including visual artists, musicians, composers, media artists, architects, builders, poets, writers, scientists, naturalists, dancers, choreographers, puppeteers, storytellers, actors and playwrights to develop projects that complement and augment the Museum's art programming. The Artist-in-Residence program is supported in part by an award from the National Endowments for the Arts. 

Pinter will be onsite at the Museum during open-studio hours and workshops from October through December 2015.
