Opening of the Resonances III Exhibition – DATAMI
Datami is an exhibition of 24 artworks created by selected artists in close collaboration with scientists and policymakers. The datami is a 'data tatami': a place of concentration, of rest and repose against the digital onslaught, a unit of measurement of digital freedom.
The sixth extinction may well claim us; considering what our species has done to the rest of life, we may deserve to go extinct, sooner rather than later. But I hope that we survive. [...] Much of our habitat seems likely to be lost. However, if we survive there will be song and dance, stories and drawings. These are what human beings have always done best. One way or another we will have a new culture, genuinely new. Many new cultures may arise, some, perhaps most, beyond imagining today.
Una pubblicazione sulla comunicazione della scienza / A publication on science communication
[ITA] La pubblicazione costituisce il primo risultato di una serie di incontri, discussioni e approfondimenti del gruppo di ricerca PICS, composto da esperti e studiosi. [ENG] The publication is the first outcome of a series of meetings, discussions and in-depth studies by the research group PICS, composed by experts and scholars.
Il Ritmo dello Spazio / Le Rythme de l’Espace / The Rhythm of Space
La recente rilevazione delle onde gravitazionali derivanti dalla fusione di buchi neri e/o stelle di neutroni che producono vibrazioni nello spazio-tempo, consente di aggiungere il “ritmo” o, in un certo senso, il “suono” dello spazio alla millenaria concezione e rappresentazione dell’Universo come immagine sublime ma silenziosa, invitando a profonde riflessioni sul rapporto dell‘uomo con il Cosmo, la Terra, la Società.
FOR – The Festival for the Earth. Sustainable Visions in Art and Science
We aim to contribute to shaping a new, more sustainable future, with positive and constructive messages on how human-kind can co-exist with nature in a changed environment and how we can transform climate change in a new wave of opportunity for all. We shape our messages with the contribution of economists, managers, environmental activists, corporate entities at the forefront of environmental innovation, but also artists, whose special sensibility and absence of boundaries can help breaking ba...
Resonances III Datami
The Resonances Festival celebrates the work of the JRC on a specific theme. This year's theme, Big Data/AI/Digital Transformation is seen through the prism of Datami. After the 2018 Summer School, 24 artists have worked with JRC scientists on a unique artwork blending JRC science with their art.
Techfest, IIT Bombay
Techfest, IIT Bombay is the annual science and technology festival of the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. Started in 1998 with the aim of providing a platform for the Indian student community to develop and showcase their technical prowess, we have now grown into Asia's Largest Science and Technology Festival: a grand three-day event on the campus of IIT Bombay attracting people from all walks of life including students, academics, professionals and the general public. Year after year, T...
Appel à films/Call for films/RISC 13
Le festival propose de découvrir une programmation de courts, moyens et longs métrages (documentaire, fiction, expérimental, art vidéo, animation…) issus d’une sélection internationale, et dont le thème et/ou la démarche témoignent d’une forte proximité (ou affinité) avec des champs de la recherche scientifique.
Technoshamanism. Ancestorfuturism, Cure and Health
We organise a party in London to support health center for indigenous health in Brazil, more specifically, the Pará Pataxó Village of Southern Bahia. We are inviting artists interested in the indigenous communities, health and cure to present their work in artists talks, workshops, performances / live music.
Ludic Epistemes. Inner and Outer Space in Art and Psychophysics
An artistic game-experiment performed in a space habitat and an authentic report of experiences from parabolic flights form the poles of a speculative discourse between an artist and a neuroscientist on conditions, possibilities, similarities, and differences of artistic and scientific research.
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.
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.
Transcending Digital Disruptions in the Post-Informational Age
The event is expected to bring together rising & proven experts, professionals and innovative young researchers from the region and globally, working in multiple fields of the future transcending digital disruptions in the post-informational age.
Tra arte e complessità / Between Art and Complexity
[ITA] Emerge la complessità dell’arte e allo stesso tempo è l’arte stessa a sciogliere la matassa della complessità in un processo ricorsivo, fondamentale e imprescindibile dove l’arte di-svela la filosofia della/sulla contemporaneità. [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....
