About EoYS

Join UCSB MAT for our End of Year Show, a presentation and celebration of this years research in electronic music, emergent media, computer science, engineering, and art. Together we can share in a transcendent experience as new art forms are born and new, expressive media is unleashed.
Our theme this year is Invisible Machine, representing the mechanism of inducing transformation in the world of Media Arts. At MAT, our community research is the art of the “invisible becoming visible” in every field, from revealing the abstracted processes between input and output of a machine, to turning the complicated scientific data into shapes and colors. As technologists and artists, we weave through this diverse research in novel ways, creating new works that transcend the present way we view the world. Our show is the product of this process, and we invite all to join us in its celebration.

The EoYS Invisible Machine exhibition features demonstrations, installations, performances, and concerts by over 50 student and faculties at MAT, AlloSphere Research Facility, Experimental Visualization Lab, Four Eyes Lab, RE-Touch Lab, Systemics Lab, and transLAB.
The media and research works represent transdisciplinary subjects and span areas such as computer graphics, robotics, virtual reality, data visualization, generative design and experimental music.
Visitors to the EoYS have the opportunity to take a guided tour of the Allosphere, the only immersive research instrument/lab of its kind in the world.
