BRATTLEBORO -- How have computers changed the aesthetic landscape? What are the implications for artists and audiences of the use of technology in art? These questions and more will be addressed by video artist Michel Moyse in a talk titled "Art & Technology" at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center on Thursday, at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, $4 for students, free for BMAC members and children under 6.

After working as a freelance sound editor in feature films in New York City, Moyse moved to Vermont and founded the Center for Digital Art, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational resources and promoting filmmaking and video art.

Moyse’s past credits includes "The Runner," a nine-channel video art piece and official selection at the Eighth Biennial of Moving Images at the Center for Contemporary Image, Geneva, Switzerland in 1999; "Cowards," an hour-long experimental three-channel video art work that won Best Experimental in the New England Film and Video Festival in 2002; and "The Round Schoolhouse," a video art installation created for BMAC in 2002.
