New Media Artwork by Norman White

The Interactive Zone will highlight artwork by Norman White, Digifest 2018 Digital Pioneer Award Recipient. 

Norman is recognized as an early pioneer of electronic, machine and robotic art. He started his career as a painter and later shifted his practice to kinetic electronics in the late 60’s. He presented his first collection of new media work at the Brooklyn Museum of Art in 1969. His electronic work merges motion, sound, movement and light. 


ReBlink provides a modern day recasting of the past. It is a digital intervention project that refreshes the traditional gallery viewing experience. Facilitated by augmented reality technology and shape recognition, established works of art are layered with an alternate re-imagining of the work.
