Art|Science and the New European Bauhaus

We think that while current covid-times are dire, all the elements are present to take up the legacy of the Bauhaus as a new reflexive transdisciplinarity, to push decidedly into uncharted territories and start shaping an as yet unknown future. The SciArt movement has been showing this new direction, with growing strength, since the middle of the last century.

Call for interest to participate in the Artificial Biology, Robotics, and Art (ABRA) Workshop Series

ABRA (Artificial Biology, Robotics, and Art) is an Erasmus+ consortium project for developing transdisciplinary education in arts, robotics, artificial biology, and sustainability. Through hands-on workshops and training, teachers and students tackle the skill-gaps within these disciplines while also addressing sustainability and climate goals. In this entanglement, new questions and new solutions are expected to be generated.

Art versus Société: un défi prométhéen?

Le titan Prométhée est moderne, modernus. Sa vision de l’homme et surtout sa volonté de dérober le feu du ciel pour le donner aux humains, est une métaphore pionnière de notre trinôme contemporain : progres, humanité, liberté. Il n’y a rien de dogmatique, de péremptoire dans ces gestes mythiques, mais on peut y voir plutôt le courage de l’héresie, toujours aussi nécessaire de nos jours. L’art doit s’immerger dans le vortex de nos sociétés actuelles, retenter d’y créer un sens fort, souvent héthé...

Within the Frame: Continuum of the Still Image

We are interested in a range of approaches including those from the past and those from the bleeding edge, using out of the box or homespun tools. Still images of any kind are welcome as our ultimate goal is to not only establish how digital methods are essential to image making, but also to highlight and perhaps remind us that the single image is still powerful and still important now, more than ever.

Biomimetics and shifting languages: computation to aid nature

These concepts are now absolutely crucial as the world warms beyond all previous predictive analysis. The analog of technology may have already reached a complexity apex. The circle would close when we move toward helping the organic world and the concerns therein. Complexity is many layers or parts working together, but when overpacked, it becomes overly complicated.

How to draw new Possibles to come, and not just confirming those that are there waiting to be confirmed, experienced and thought, as Possibles that can be brought to existence in our worldview? How to move from the impossible, the fable or the utopia to directly bite into our reality? The Possible is inscribed within the arts, design, sciences and technologies that surround us now and those yet to come.

The Deep Meaning of Poetry. Eduardo Kac’s Art of the Fundamental Processes [Part 2. Interview to Eduardo Kac]

I create form, I create form that gives itself to the senses which is to say, form that provides an aesthetic experience. That is what I do and that is what art is supposed to do. What is particular in what I do, that is unique and underpins all of my interests, is that early on in my life I understood that life could not fold into haze: either we would find ourselves in a condition that we would be free or we would find ourselves in a condition that we would not be free.

Digital Matters: Designing/Performing Agency for the Anthropocene

In scholarship the Anthropocene has been tied up with the experience of the unthinkable­­ by thinkers including Timothy Morton, Donna Haraway, and Amitav Ghosh. Yet, the current COVID-19 pandemic—which as a crisis also exemplifies the human impact on and a reshaping of environments—challenges the pervasiveness of the key concepts of abstraction and unthinkability. Instead, the pandemic has turned the Anthropocene into a concrete, intensely lived, globally shared experience.

Pink Water Landscapes of Artifice. On Smithson’s “Spiral Jetty” Heritage in the Making of “Vanishing Point”

In 2019 I visited the “Spiral Jetty” twice: alone right after my arrival in Utah, and on the morning of a late summer day when I had to fly back to Italy. That was when I shot the video-performance “Vanishing Point” influenced by Smithson’s idea of entropy and disruption, and his interest in geology, time sediments, location identity (Kwon, 2002), and environment that are widely investigated in his writings (1996).
