Avoiding the digital space is almost impossible. It has become an extension of our self-image and relationships. How we affect the digital world and how it influences us are very personal experiences. Like being in a city, individuals are surrounded by millions, but can still feel isolated. This digital space is a place of gray areas and vast knowledge that changes the analog world in unfathomable ways. This exhibition focuses on how we balance these two worlds and the lasting effects of intangible experiences on one another.

The Norton Museum of Art partnership with Jupiter Community High School, now in its fourth year, provides students opportunities to relate art-making to their lived experience. This year, AICE (Advanced International Certificate of Education) photography students visited the Museum to learn about its collection and exhibitions through direct observation and discussion. Students participated in a conversation and guided tour of the exhibition Earth Works: Mapping the Anthropocene with artist Justin Guariglia and the Norton’s William and Sarah Ross Soter Curator of Photography, Tim Wride.
After their Museum visits, students created digital artworks that explore the role of technology in their lives. Digital, Technical, Social includes works by 26 students. The Norton Museum of Art congratulates all of the students who participated, and thanks Jupiter High School Principal Dr. Colleen Iannitti, Jupiter High School Assistant Principal Amber Saunders, and teachers Sarah Knudtson and Stephen Germana for their dedication to student success through the arts.
