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

Crossing the boundaries from Cyberpunk Fiction to Reality, Stelarc’s work moves gradually towards the realization of a vision: To investigate the interface between the actual and the virtual world, with the body acting seamlessly in mixed realities, and with an intelligent avatar that performs in the real world, with optical density and tactile experience. 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. 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?

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.

Polyphibionics: from cyborganic amphibians to polyphibians

Returning to the origins of cyborg, conceived in order to automatize the homeostasis of human species of Earthlings, augmenting the human organism to conquer the knowledge of outer space, outside the safety zone of planet Earth, this paper re-examines the relation between the outward and inward directed explorations by considering how the journeys beyond the offerings of our atmosphere enable expansion of our noosphere.

Politics of the Machines: Art and After

The question of how the machine impacts and contextualizes artistic production and perception is the overall topic of this conference. 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).
