Metodi ed Emozioni / Méthodes et émotions

[ITA] L’emozione è proprio ciò che conduce alla curiosità scientifica. L’opera d’arte dà luogo anche a una riflessione di tipo scientifico perché include una componente scientifica. Proprio perché c’è un contenuto d’informazione di tipo scientifico può esserci un valore estetico. [FRA] L’émotion est justement ce qui nous amène à la curiosité scientifique.

Biennale WRO 2021 REVERSO

REVERSO is a call to look at what is happening now in art from the underside which, until recently just peeking through, is now becoming increasingly visible, from the reverse of a suddenly upended side, as well as being a device that saves the lives of climbers in case they suddenly fall off the rock, helping them convert an inevitable crash into a controlled rappel. If the discovery of cyberspace as a social territory in the 20th century is compared to great geographical discoveries, the diss...

Coevolution of Human-Machine Creativity: Incorporating the Visual Output of Artificial Intelligence into Traditional Art Making

The visual output from these AI generated paintings were incorporated back into abstract artworks of my own creation using traditional means; and these could subsequently be used as input to the DCGAN algorithm. When implemented iteratively, this procedure can lead to coevolution of human-machine creativity, as the artistic output of each entity (human and AI) influence each other.

Future World Games will be played not on Dymaxion maps but on virtual real-world locations.
