1pm to 3pm Free.  Digital Arts Salon: Nathan Selikoff. Coral Springs Museum of Art Inc. 2855 Coral Springs Dr, Coral Springs, Fl.  Nathan Selikoff’s award-winning artwork has been exhibited and performed in galleries and venues throughout the United States and around the world, including Art Basel in Switzerland; Bridges Math Art Conferences in Portugal, Hungary, Canada and the Netherlands; the Maitland Art Center in Florida; AXIOM Gallery in Boston; the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art; the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art in California; SIGGRAPH Art Galleries in various US cities, and the Orlando Mini Maker Faire. Recently, Selikoff was one of a small group of developers to launch apps for the new Leap Motion Controller, a futuristic 3D motion control technology for computing. His experimental art app, Beautiful Chaos, allows users to explore the curves and ripples of mathematical equations brought to life in vivid color. In 2012 and early 2013, Selikoff participated in The Corridor Project, The Creative City Project, and the Cardboard Art Festival in Orlando, installing site-specific sculptures made from recycled cardboard inspired by some of his digital works. Selikoff was born in Atlanta in 1980. He received a BFA in Computer Animation and a minor in Computer Science from the University of Central Florida in Orlando, where he resides with his wife, Amy. He is also the founder of Processing Orlando, a bi-monthly meetup for artists interested in using technology, and provides freelance graphics programming and technical direction services through his company, Digital Awakening Studios.
