Il mondo della ricerca artistica può fornire ulteriori stimoli per alimentare tale discussione? In che modo l'arte può interagire con la comunicazione della scienza?

Recent research on the impact of machines and technology on art places the machine in the centre of ‘ecologies’ (Fuller), ‘archaeologies’ (Parikka) and ‘aesthetics of interaction’ (Kwastek) pointing towards a ‘techno-ontology’ (Broeckmann).
