Campus’ Stuart Art Collection to Receive $30,000 Restoration Grant from National Endowment for the Arts

The National Endowment for the Arts recently allocated a $30,000 grant to restore part of UCSD’s Stuart Collection of public art. The conservation project focuses on reinventing the video-art installation “Something Pacific” by the late artist Nam June Paik. This exhibit consists of various television sets scattered across campus and an indoor wall of 24 screens that used to be interactive when it was designed in 1986. With the help of UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering students and faculty, the Stuart Collection aims to restore some of the original visual effects on the indoor video wall and add new methods of interaction, including motion and sound sensors and a webcam.
