Oocyte Aesthetic, Human Design and Mission Creep

The admixture of global interspecies variety through genetic engineering and the cloning of spectacular hereditary cascades should only be approved through an aesthetic advisory commission made up of artists, art historians and off-the-locus aesthetics specialists. The future of style and the avoidance of our populous birthing any aesthetic hazards are dependent on collaboration between new reproductive biotechnology and the Arts.

Arti e scienze nell’era post-accademica / Arts and sciences in the post-academic era

[ITA] Arti e scienze esprimono aspetti fondamentali della cultura delle società. Esemplificano il pensiero astratto, interpretano il reale e rappresentano, da punti di vista complementari, la complessità del loro tempo. Connubio indissolubile. [ENG] Arts and sciences express fundamental aspects of the culture of societies. They exemplify abstract thinking, interpret reality and represent, from complementary points of view, the complexity of their time. An indissoluble union.

(UN)REAL

What is real, and how are you sure it is so? How can you determine which experiences are "real" if they are digital, virtual or influenced by the chemistry and architecture of your brain? Scientific research uncovers ways that our minds and senses conspire to produce gaps between the actual and the perceived.

AI and Humanities workshop

In line with the datami concept – to bring rest and repose against the digital onslaught – the idea is to organise an investigation into the cultural aspects of Big Data/AI/Digital Transformation, calling upon the Humanities to shed some light beyond the blind spot of technological progress, to help us out in avoiding mass delusions and close the gap with computational machines that are supposed to carry out their own embedded desires.

Post-polyploidy subgenome evolution of glitch art

Can artistic innovation be inspired and guided on knowledge taken from the field of plant genome evolution? The author explored this question by subjecting a glitch artwork to processes analogous to those shaping the evolution of the maize genome; that are whole genome duplication (WGD), subgenome bias fractionation and genome dominance, respectively.

Cambiamenti climatici e paure collettive

La comunicazione assume toni allarmistici, eppure... nella nostra “economia dell’attenzione”, risorsa scarsa nel moltiplicarsi di appelli drammatici, la ripetizione e la pluralità dei messaggi di fonti diverse ha spesso effetti controproducenti. La paura, più che spingere all’azione o a cambiamenti di comportamento (di cui vorremmo vedere subito gli effetti) alimenta un immaginario catastrofico.

A Framework for the Integration of Art & Science

The ideas the author expresses here intend to codify the types of creative expression that may lead to the integration of art with science in the near future. The time has come for the emergence of a new science in which creative expressiveness is part of the research agenda and this essay aims at inoculating scientists with the spirit of art, and artists with the spirit of science.

The Bioart of Neurons and Memory

Demonstrating the preservation of cells after a living organism is pronounced dead and revived is not a traditional bioart topic. But it is an important one. It is a crucial step for advances in the use of lowered temperatures for sustaining the efficacy of organs and organisms during medical procedures, and especially of preserving neurons for the science cryonics. My recent bioart research is a breakthrough that will help to build momentum toward more advanced studies on information storage w...

Text is Mortal

Text twitches and is wound. Text is hallucinatory by design to convey images without anything but letterforms. Text is held like traffic flows by not stop signs but commas and semicolons and all the rest. Text is mortal and mutates. It is time to look not just into creative experiments and new methodologies within textual works but text itself. Something interesting can happen if interaction happens within the body of the letters themselves.
