InFormaDiScienza

L'arte oggi si misura a livello poetico, filosofico e pragmatico con le biotecnologie, con la robotica, con le nanotecnologie, con la vita artificiale, con la genetica, con i cambiamenti climatici, con la dimensione remota dell'universo. Oltre a riflettere e far riflettere sul presente e sul futuro tecnoscientifico, l'arte porta anche un contributo che non è solo di immagini, di simulazioni, di scenari, di rappresentazioni e discussioni, ma che può configurarsi come costruttivo per lo stesso amb...

L’arte biotecnologica dell’innovazione

L'argomento delle relazioni tra forme artistiche, tecnologie e innovazione è ormai presente, anche in Italia, all'interno del panorama dell'arte. Queste nuove forme, in linea con l'ascesa dell'importanza scientifica, culturale e sociale dei processi naturali, hanno recuperato la dimensione organica, l'ambito della biologia, dando origine a esiti che sono stati chiamati "bioarte", come arte e ricerca biotecnologica, come arte e ricerca genetica, come arte e ricerca sulla vita.

Tomorrow now: l’opera senza centro – Art Biotech

L'Arte Biotecnologica dimostra che l'arte trae ispirazione e fa ampio uso dalle tecnologie del suo tempo. Essa infatti si basa su una reale manipolazione genetica e quindi evolve di pari passo con le tecniche e le conoscenze in campo biotecnologico. Spesso si tende a considerare questa nuova realtà artistica come un'appendice naturale delle new media arts, ma gli ambiti hanno anche caratteristiche specifiche; la prima è di derivazione informatica e si basa su tecnologie digitali che creano imm...

Mondospazzatura a Galassia Gutenberg

Il tema può essere trattato da politici e filosofi, letterati e scienziati, artisti e amministratori. Ma tutti sono chiamati a dirci cosa davvero c'è dietro questa che è una delle più grottesche tragedie ecologiche e sociali del nostro presente, una catastrofe emersa ora - dopo anni e anni di inaudita fermentazione - con massima violenza e inaudito dolore. Sin dentro Napoli e in Campania. Ma anche dentro il tempo della crisi dei modelli di solidarietà sociale e delle nuove dimensioni post-umane....

Geostationary satellites

Italiano sotto Geostationary satellites playing broken telephone game. Discretely. Confidentially. 22.400 Miles above our heads.

Invisible Influenced

Turbulence Commission: "Invisible Influenced" by Will Pappenheimer and Chipp Jansen http://turbulence.org/works/invis/ "Invisible Influenced" is a Rorschach test for envisioning the US as the recipient rather than the cause of worldwide events.
