Antibodies. Lynn Hershman Leeson At HeK

HeK has recently dedicated the solo show "Anti-Bodies" to Lynn Hershman Leeson, which focuses on her most recent studies into biological advancement, regenerative medicine, antibodies and genetic research.

[ENG] The what3words commercial geocoding system, founded in 2013, allows to locate geographical positions through the algorithmic assignation of a combination of three words, a textual tag that replaces the uncomfortably numerical lat-long coordinates.

Towards a Semi-Living Avatar. Investigating the Interface Body-Smart Machines in Stelarc’s Work

This idea, seems to permeate his experimentations with engineering, robotic and digital technology, and with artificial intelligence and biot...

Text is not Static

Text in its nature and very architecture is anxious, it is neurotic. It is only held in a seemingly apparent stasis. A work with text is never truly finished but ceased. The paragraph is a shivering mass of bent lines as is a single sentence. The systematic function of text is to infer a voice in a code of bent lines and spaces between. The sculptural nature of the lines of letters is akin to an exhibition of forms encoded with implied speech and thought. It also is like the ground awaiting crac...

Comunicare la scienza tra arte, scienza e tecnologia

Riflessioni in forma di dialogo sulla comunicazione della scienza, di come "raccontarla” efficacemente e sul possibile ruolo dell'arte, sulle relazioni tra arte e scienza, sui pubblici e sulla necessità di un discorso interdisciplinare.

La Complessità come problema, sistema e risorsa

Pordenone, 23 Maggio 2018 Ore 09:30 - 17:30 presso Consorzio Universitario - Pordenone FVG Se i problemi che ci assillano: ambiente, alimentazione, lavoro, povertà, salute, sono generati da una rete di fattori che si configurano in modo ricorsivo e sistemico, il pensiero abilitato alla loro soluzione sarà plausibilmente un pensiero anch’esso “a rete”. Il problema è che questo nuovo paradigma cognitivo che, in definitiva, è lo stesso che regola i processi in natura, non ci viene spontaneo m...

Evolutionary creativity. The inner life and meaning of art

Generative art is a key example of a general transformation carried on by many disciplines, which are going to populate our world with increasingly different subjects. [...] In mirroring nature and life, also the generative art forms and processes are leading to the advent of a “Third Life”, the life that little by little humanity is giving to its artefacts.
