The first time the cute boy from science class typed “lol” into our AIM chat, my heart fluttered. Of course, later my older, wiser sister had to explain to me that these three letters were internet speak for “laugh out loud,” not “lots of love” as I’d hoped. This easy misinterpretation is just one of the effects of the digital age, in which computers, cell phones and other technologies have totally changed our lives. In Spencer Brown-Pearn’s master of fine arts thesis, he explores the intersection of art and technology with an exhibit lololololololololol. His argument centers on where the expressive “hand” meets the coded, digital world. See the exhibit — it's paintings, drawing and sculptures — during the opening reception at 7 p.m. Saturday at CentralTrak (800 Exposition Ave). For more information visit centraltrak.com.
Mondays-Sundays, 7 p.m. Starts: May 31. Continues through June 14, 2014
