Techspressionism Roundtable #02
Recorded January 23, 2022
In this Techspressionism Roundtable, Michael Pierre Price moderates an engaging discussion with fellow Techspressionist artists Roz Dimon, Tommy Mintz, and Renata Janiszewska. Techspressionism is defined as “an artistic approach in which technology is utilized as a means to express emotional experience.” One key idea here is “artistic approach,” as opposed to style or technique, which historically has defined many artistic movements in the past. In this Roundtable, each artist discusses what the term “artistic approach” means to them by sharing examples of their artwork and highlighting how the use of technology has shaped their creative process.
