Biomimetics and shifting languages: computation to aid nature
These concepts are now absolutely crucial as the world warms beyond all previous predictive analysis. The analog of technology may have already reached a complexity apex. The circle would close when we move toward helping the organic world and the concerns therein. Complexity is many layers or parts working together, but when overpacked, it becomes overly complicated.
xCoAx 2021 9th Conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics & X
xCoAx is an exploration of the intersection where computational tools and media meet art and culture, in the form of a multi-disciplinary enquiry on aesthetics, computation, communication and the elusive X factor that connects them all. The focus of xCoAx is on the unpredictable overlaps between the freedom of creativity and the rules of algorithms, between human nature and machine technology, with the aim to evolve towards new directions in aesthetics.
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?
Architectures of Interaction, Architectures of Communication
New ways of using space are emerging and moving towards real time management. The architect has perhaps become a super programmer? In this perspective, we can say that the present city is partly an expression of the 20th century urban and technological utopianism.
McLuhan’s “Understanding Media” is 50
In 1964 the Canadian scholar Marshall McLuhan published his seminal book "Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man", that gave a new sap to the media studies introducing new perspectives. He suggested that “the medium is the message”, namely that the media affect the society in which they play a role.
Simulation beyond perspective
Holography suggests a new visual universe within a culture where the visual simulation is the most effective communication system; and it let us reflect about the need for a more comprehensive definition of “image”. We can believe that future images will also be holographic and that we shall communicate more and more through them, in a delicate balance between presence and absence, immediacy and remoteness, present and past, materiality and immateriality, matter and energy.
Telestreet: la sostenibile leggerezza dell’etere
Qualche mese fa è nata a Bologna OrfeoTv, una micro-tv di strada, indipendente, che trasmette in un raggio di qualche centinaio di metri sfruttando il cono d'ombra di Mtv. Insieme a questa è nato anche il progetto Telestreet, per creare una rete di televisioni di strada.
