Tra arte e complessità / Between Art and Complexity

[ENG] What emerges is both the complexity of art and, at the same time, the statement that claims that art can dissolve the skin of complexity itself in a recursive, fundamental and indispensable process where art reveals the philosophy of contemporaneity....

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...

Derived from science fiction literature, films and theatre (R.U.R robot of Čapek), humanoids are now a reality. By mimicking the gestures, behaviour, the way of speaking and interactions of humans, robots, androids, cyborgs, avatars as avant-garde of technology still cause surprise and evoke uncanny reactions. They have deep roots in ancient self-moving a...
Text is Mortal

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.

MATTER(S) matter(s): Bridging Research in the Arts and Sciences

With their shared interests in materiality and topical issues—the dual “matters” invoked in the exhibition title—the artists in the exhibition reveal an “epistemological turn” in the arts and sciences, focusing on how knowledge is produced and how the process of production inflects meaning and interpretation. This major presentation highlights how artists and scientists work together to imagine the future, today.

Climate Leviathan

Climate Leviathan is an essential book. I recommend it to anyone concerned about the future. However, it would have been an even better book if it were less nostalgic for lost certainties of the left. That would have made its panorama of the future even darker, but simultaneously may have revealed more than four political possibilities.

I will say something about the similarities and differences between the Situationist critical social theory of advanced or hyper-capitalism and consumerist media culture, and Jean Baudrillard’s theory of image, media and consumer culture. And about the implications for how resistance and change and transformation can come about starting from his theory of objects.
