La vie devient matériau. Le #bioart à travers l'oeuvre de Lu Yang par Catherine Barnabé

La vie devient matériau. Le #bioart à travers l'oeuvre de Lu Yang par Catherine Barnabé | Socialart | Scoop.it

Lu Yang est une jeune artiste dont les travaux s’inscrivent dans le courant du bio-art, une pratique qui consiste en l’utilisation des biotechnologies comme méthode de travail pour la réalisation de projets artistiques. De manière générale, les artistes du bio-art utilisent le vivant comme matière première.

 

Ils s’en approprient les ressources plastiques et scientifiques afin de développer une pratique tout à fait singulière dans laquelle s’amalgament les arts et les sciences, notamment la biologie moléculaire, la génétique et l’informatique. Les artistes qui touchent à ce type de pratique ne possèdent pas toujours les connaissances scientifiques suffisantes pour concevoir leurs projets, ils collaborent ainsi avec des experts qui les encadrent dans leurs réalisations.

 

De nombreuses questions éthiques émergent en observant les travaux de certains artistes qui utilisent, par exemple, des tissus humains ou encore, des êtres vivants, souvent vulnérables, pour mener à bien leurs projets. Les œuvres audacieuses de Lu Yang, que l’on peut qualifier d’expériences, mettent en doute notre morale et interrogent certains fondements des comportements éthiques socialement acceptables.

▶ The Transition Between Human And Cyborg : meet media artist Aaajiao (interview 2013)

▶ The Transition Between Human And Cyborg : meet media artist Aaajiao (interview 2013) | Socialart | Scoop.it

Chinese media artist Aaajiao combines visual and musical aspects to create works of art that imitate nature in thought-provoking new ways. 

 

Aaajiao (XU Wenkai) was born in 1984 in Xi'an, and later moved to Shanghai, where he continues to live and work. Aaajiao is one of China's foremost media artists, bloggers and free culture developers. In 2003 he established the sound art website: cornersound.com, and in 2006 he founded the Chinese take on the blog We Make Money Not Art: We Need Money Not Art. He is devoted to Processing, an open source visual programming software, Dorkbot, a non-profit initiative for creative minds, and eventstructure, an interdisciplinary center for art, media technology and academic research based in Shanghai. In his works in general, Aaajiao focuses on the use of data and its various forms of display, and how meaning is understood through the process of transforming the movement from reality, to data, and back again. His most significant aesthetic contribution to new media in China is a social one, acting as a vector for the interpretation and communication of international and local trends in the usages of software in artistic practice.

The Evolution of 8-Bit Art | #8bitart

Beginning with early Atari and Nintendo video games, the 8-bit aesthetic has been a part of our culture for over 30 years. As it moved through the generations, 8-bit earned its independence from its video game roots. The idea of 8-bit now stands for a refreshing level of simplicity and minimalism, is capable of sonic and visual beauty, and points to the layer of technology that suffuses our modern lives. No longer just nostalgia art, contemporary 8-bit artists and chiptunes musicians have elevated the form to new levels of creativity and cultural reflection.
