SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The PULSE Art and Technology Festival kicked off in Savannah on Wednesday night.
PULSE 2016 features innovative art experiences and hands-on workshops, allowing audiences to participate as collaborators and creators.
There are exhibitions, artist talks, performances and more. Wednesday night featured a lecture by L.A. artist, Nova Jiang, and a gallery turned musical score by two Danish-born musicians and designers.
"It's a great opportunity for everyone to learn more about how artists are using technology creatively. There are so many new technologies that are available to artists, everything from virtual reality to face-recognition software and artists are always using new tools," said Telfair Museums Senior Curator of Education Harry Delorme.
2016 is the 10th year for the festival and it runs through January 31st.
Exhibits (on display throughout the festival):
- I'll be Your Mirror: Interactive Reflections brings together five recent interactive art installations that allow participants to see their images reflected and transformed in real time.

- Another exhibit Interactive Sound Installations by Foo/Skou, features the work of musicians and visual artists Louise Foo and Martha Skou. Guests can read the music written on the wall! The artists combine digital technology and analog techniques to let museum guests make original music on their smartphones.
