This weekend, the Austin Museum of Digital Art will hold the PROTOS Digital Art and Prototyping Festival—four days of daytime events (free!) and nighttime events (not free!) at the Long Center Rollins Theatre. There will be a whole bunch of super-smart, cross-disciplinary, hip techno-geeks getting together to present workshops and seminars during the afternoons, and then partying down with concerts, A/V performances, and interactive dancing into the night.
If the PROTOS Festival turns out to be a futuristic overload, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston will present a trip into the (not-so-distant, really) technological past on the following weekend when it opens Faking It: Manipulated Photography before Photoshop. The exhibition boasts its own prototyping examples: “Nearly every type of manipulation now associated with photography was also part of the pre-digital repertoire.”
