art*science 2017/Leonardo 50 – Una supernova accende una nuova storia / A supernova that lights a new history

[ITA] art*science 2017 si è proposto come terreno fertile su cui seminare domande e riflessioni, ma soprattutto si è gettato il seme della collaborazione. art*science 2017 festeggia in maniera straordinaria l'anniversario di Leonardo evocando nuove possibilità di ricerca e nuove metodologie e idee. Scienziati, teorici, ricercatori e artisti hanno dato vita ad un dibattito che in Italia manca e lanciato una sfida per il futuro.

Call for Proposals: Modules for Master Degrees in Arts and Science

The European Commission launches €1.5 million experimental call for proposals to design innovative interdisciplinary modules for Master degrees, combining arts and ICT with entrepreneurial skills and business exposure. Creative industries are experiencing a significant skills gap at the crossing of creativity and technology. This action, provided by Creative Europe, aims to promote an interdisciplinary approach in masters and university courses by fostering cross-sectorial curricula combining...

L’Ambiente Dentro. Una riflessione epistemologica sul confine / Environment Inside. An Epistemological Reflection on the Border

[ITA] Le nuove suggestioni dalle scienze della complessità erodono un confine ideale e troppo ben definito tra noi e l'ambiente. L'ambiente non è più qualcosa di fisso, "là fuori", ma una produzione delle nostre rappresentazioni individuale e collettive. I nodi epistemologici, ecologici ed economici di questa concezione sono qui identificati. [ENG] The new suggestions from the sciences of complexity erode an ideal and too well defined boundary between us and the environment. The environment is ...

Giornalisti? ‘Cani da carne’ in salsa high-tech / Journalists? ‘Meat dog’ with high-tech sauce

[ITA] Cambiano i tempi ma David Cronenberg, regista etichettato come il Barone del Sangue, non si smentisce. [ENG] The time is changed but David Cronenberg, the director too labeled as the Baron of Blood, makes no exceptions.

Call for Exhibition: States of Matter

The embodiment of artistic intents in the plastic and figurative forms of representation has been a dramatic moment in the human history defined by revolutionary processes to master matter in terms of colors, shapes, materials and techniques. A New Renaissance brought to practitioners, in this contemporary age, by the enormous availabilities of scientific and technological knowledge together with a change of perspective, in which cross-disciplinary discourses are established between specialized ...

Call for Papers: Art and Education

The relationship between art and education has a long history during which it has acquired various forms that, far from following each other in a linear sequence, coexist and hybridize. Thus, we find different currents in education that advocate the inclusion of art in general schooling with the purpose of fostering personal, intellectual, moral, social (and, of course, professional) development. Furthermore, there have also been artistic projects undertaken in cooperation with certain groups, i...

Noema’s n.blog & Subtle Technologies

The 15th annual Subtle Technologies Festival took place in Toronto for 3 days (May 24-27, 2012), with scientists, artists and designers from all around the world to share ideas, science and artworks. This year the Festival for the first time was made in collaboration with Ryerson University, with a packed program of presentations, workshops, performances, screenings and more, all connected to science and art. Also this year (like in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011) Roberta Buiani from Toronto at...

Around Simulation

So, what is simulation? How does it work? Does it only stick to human representations or visualizations or does it refer to a more general realm? What are the layers (technological, social, imaginative, conventional) that construct simulation? Which conflicts and power relations (in material or technological and sociocultural terms) are involved in their construction? And how do we make sense of them? Can these mechanisms be modified, enhanced, re-elaborated through artistic practice?

BIACS 3 – YOUniverse

Sono andato, qualche giorno prima della chiusura, a vedere la Biennale de Arte Contemporaneo de Sevilla (BIACS 3) (2 Ottobre 2008 - 11 Gennaio 2009), giunta alla terza edizione e intitolata YOUniverse. Il commissario, nonchè direttore artistico, di questa edizione era Peter Weibel, e dunque la cosa mi incuriosiva: perchè mai una biennale d'arte, che normalmente opera sulle forme artistiche della tradizione, aveva scelto, "coraggiosamente", un commissario così "tecnologico"?

Due o tre cose su Nam June Paik

Con Paik l'arte si estende agli strumenti della televisione, del video, rafforza la sua presenza - inaugurata dalla Pop Art e oggi abituale grazie a strumenti come Internet - nell'ambito delle comunicazioni di massa. E va a compimento quel declino della presenza della materia nell'opera d'arte, inaugurato dalla fotografia, che qualche anno più tardi, nel 1973, sarà celebrato dalla critica d'arte Lucy Lippard nel suo celebre The Dematerialization of the Art Object.

Addio a Pierre Restany, lo spirito libero della critica

Restany non si occupava di arte tecnologica ma non era affatto estraneo alle tematiche di Noema. Pi? in generale, pu? essere considerato un esempio nel panorama dell'arte contemporanea. Viaggiatore infaticabile, frequentatore e spesso amico dei pi? grandi artisti e creativi fin dai loro esordi, era una persona lucida e aperta che nei fenomeni culturali, anche i meno appariscenti, sapeva riconoscere gli elementi innovativi, cogliere i risvolti, anticipare le ricadute.
