The emotions and art of the societal impact of research

In recent years, STI policy globally has increasingly focused on ensuring that researchers engage with wider stakeholders to deliver positive economic impact and address societal challenges. This reflects the growing societal expectations placed on research and innovation, and increased concerns about how well research systems are aligned with the changing needs of society. Demand for research with impact has generated changes in how research is funded, evaluated, organized and disseminated.

Prompt Generations – Exhibition in Virtual Gallery 3d

La Generative AI Art può essere considerata una nuova forma di Media distinto dall’Arte Digitale “tradizionale”. Una delle principali differenze è il ruolo dell’artista nel processo di creazione. Nell‘Arte Digitale tradizionale, l’artista ha in genere un alto grado di controllo sull’opera finale, utilizzando strumenti e tecniche digitali per creare l’arte, per esempio codici di programmazione o interfacce grafiche. Al contrario, nella Generative Al Art, l’artista gioca un ruolo più indiretto, fo...

Artificial Intelligence and the Agelast. Iconopoeia of the mechanistic humor

Humour exerted by AI painting machines are gradually becoming empathetic (not yet conscious?) of comic information they attribute to audiences. In the symptomatology of artworks produced by machines, online AI text-to-image apps provide sliding menus for the diminution or exaggeration of a mimic property as laughter, eye-opening levels, etc. In any case, it is information stored from other historical art images or photographic paradigms, processed to formalise a new iconopoiia.

Meraviglia Ubiqua / Ubiquitous Meraviglia

Salvatore è un atto poetico e rivoluzionario, è performance stupefatta dove attraverso affinità empatiche e telepatiche partecipiamo a un grande progetto di “abitare” le vite (tutte). Questo mio discorso a cuore aperto, come un’operazione senza anestesia, forse non restituisce l’immensità di Salvatore, ma ne dà una goccia che spero instillerà nell’oceano agitato una promessa di continuare ciò che Salvatore ha fatto e continua con noi a fare, ossia aprire il suo corpo. Il nostro (suo) viaggio non...

ISEA 2023 – SYMBIOSIS

Symbiosis is a cornerstone of life itself — no organism, nor any species more widely, could survive in isolation and without reciprocity. This applies as much to human societies as to the rapport of those societies with their surrounding environments. More than a simple co-existence, symbiosis implies interdependence. It can be positive, neutral, or negative, varying according to the dynamic between the rapport’s attendant parts. We must, then, choose our symbiotic models wisely. This is the ori...

L’art au-delà de l’humanisme

L'art est une sorte de philosophie de la contemporanéité. Nous avons besoin d'un art éclairé, capable de prendre en compte aussi ce qui n'est pas humain (l'environnement, les autres espèces...), de se confronter et de dialoguer directement avec la complexité de l'existant, en dépassant des préjugés qui demeurent encore bien ancrés.

This symposium offers an incubator where artists, designers, scientists, and other thinkers will dialogue and debate on process and practice, exhibiting novel projects along the way.

Outsourcing Life

Humans have always been inspired by the living, representing, simulating and emulating it. Today we are witnessing the extension of life into a “Third Life” - being the “First Life” the biological life and the “Second Life” the life in the symbolic dimension - that expands Nature. This process is consistent with the progressive externalization outside the body of human functions and activities.

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.
