Ars Electronica 2017 - Artificial intelligence /// September 7-11, 2017, Linz /// #mediaart #artsci | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Artificial intelligence has done it again. Now that Facebook, Uber and Co. are suffering from an increasingly bad public image, the reinvention of Virtual Reality has already lost its allure, and the Internet of Things doesn’t seem to be able to get beyond the self-replenishing refrigerator, the thrill engendered by futuristic super-machines is dominating the headlines.

 

So what are we to make of artificial intelligence? Gigantic job eliminator? Or the next step in evolution, the one in which technology finally asserts its mastery over us? Or maybe the source of redemptive systems that develop new medications for us and operate on us, that invest and multiply our capital, and that even make better business executives because the boss is finally a more rational decision-maker? Artificial intelligence has many faces and they’re sure to pay attention to us all.

Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) push the boundaries of human knowledge. Unconventional ways of thinking and creativity open novel and visionary fields of research that radically shift. Our project brings together artists and FET projects using best practice methods to create high-impact collaborative outcomes including the production of new artworks, major exhibitions, media campaigns, and socially engaged events including festivals, debates and participatory workshops.

 

Six leading international artists are hosted within FET projects through fully funded embedded residencies. Through in-depth collaborations with researchers and reflecting on the projects, the artists explore, engage and communicate these new areas of research to reach the widest possible audiences, opening up societal discussions, raising awareness and enhancing take-up of radically new technologies.

 

In our video section you can also find introductory videos by our coordinator, Erich Prem, and our artist partner, Anna Dumitriu, to give you an overview of our project.

Overview du dernier Mirage Festival - plongée dans l'univers immatériel de l'art numérique

Overview du dernier Mirage Festival - plongée dans l'univers immatériel de l'art numérique | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Le Mirage Festival est un cocktail magique qui se sirote pendant quatre jours et quatre nuits. Subtil équilibre d’expositions, de conférences et de soirées électro, la recette 2017, intitulée "(Im)atérialités", promet des effets surprenants : donner accès à des choses habituellement invisibles, perturber les limites de la perception, envoûter les sens, titiller la réalité… Ses ingrédients principaux sont des couleurs, du son et du mouvement… Konbini vous présente des pépites repérées dans la programmation de cette 5e édition, qui se déroule jusqu'au 12 mars à Lyon.

 

Rendre visible l’immatériel, c’est le jeu auquel se prêtent les artistes présentés dans le parcours d’exposition (accessible à tous, gratuitement) qui s’installe aux Subsistances, à la Taverne Gutenberg, au Musée des Beaux-Arts et à l’École des Beaux-Arts de Lyon. "Le numérique est hyper présent dans notre quotidien, l’idée cette année était d’explorer sa présence, de dévoiler l'intangible", nous explique Jean-Manu Rosnet, cofondateur du festival...

TADAEX - Tehran Annual Digital Art Exhibition /// #mediaart #festival

TADAEX - Tehran Annual Digital Art Exhibition /// #mediaart #festival | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Tehran Annual Digital Art Exhibition, TADAEX, was founded in 2011 with the aim of opening new horizons for Iran’s interdisciplinary and digital art. Its intention has been to create a serious and independent atmosphere for enthusiasts and researchers alike. The non-commercial nature of this art, in addition to the high cost of the equipment, have always made it difficult for the Iranian artists to participate and gain experience in the digital arena.

 

Thus, the potential for exhibiting and presenting artworks in this field could not be properly realized, and therefore, by presenting works by international artists and creating a platform for engaging with and exchanging of their knowledge, TADAEX has endeavored to pave the way for Iranian digital artists to develop and nurture their art.

>> 09.03.2017 - ARTEFACT expo festival : The Act of Magic /// #MediaArt | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Artefact is a themed exhibition and festival on contemporary visual arts, current events and societal challenges. In 2017, Artefact looks at the Act of Magic. What does magic mean today? Which role does it play as a social phenomenon? How is it used as a metaphor? And how do contemporary artists tackle the subject? From poetry to strategy, from magical object to obscure systems, from harmless distraction to manipulation: the artists in The Act of Magic investigate what enchants us today.  

 

Curators: Karen Verschooren (STUK) & Ils Huygens (Z33)

 

Artefact is an initiative of the Province Vlaams-Brabant i.c.w. Stad Leuven, and is  supported by KU Leuven, Culture Office and the Group Science & Technology in the context of the policy guideline ‘art and science’.

#Call 2017 | ADAF // Athens Digital Arts Festival /// deadline 14.02.2017 //// #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

The elusive transition of digital culture is shaping a future ‘beyond digital’, where the physical and the digital are merging. In the late 90’s N. Negroponte stated that “the digital revolution is over”. Almost two decades later and having accepted that the digital culture has been stabilized into our everydayness, we are moving forward to a most abstract creation. The necessity of innovation and excess of limits, has been a primary goal imposed by the ever evolving technological fetish.

This futuristic lifestyle is reflected from the coherence of the ‘real – virtual’ boundaries. The humanization of technology along with the social and economic crisis lead to a replica of the physical world where everything is countable in digits, therefore simplified and transparent. Yet is post digital the real progress?

 

We call all artists that are fond of cutting-edge technologies to continue submiting their works in the following categories: #Installations, #WebArt, #VideoArt, #Animation, #DigitalImage, #AVPerformances, #Music, #Workshops, #Ομιλίες taking advantage of technolgies such as #VirtualReality, #360ovideo, #AugmentedReality, #3DPrinting, #ETextile, #Mappingprojection

Educational and experimental platform Transmit proudly presents second year of Transmit Festival! Festival will consist from a/v performances, live acts, talks, exhibition and panel discussions.

This year's theme is “Technology is now” We don’t wish for a different kind of technology. We want a different perception of technology. Technology is often thought of just as a series of different versions of the same product or principle made mainly for economic profit. This reduction bores us as much as centuries lasting techno-optimism. Technology itself has much greater potential...

#Call: Digital Art Co-Commission with British Science Festival - Brighton Digital Festival - deadline 24.04.2017

#Call: Digital Art Co-Commission with British Science Festival - Brighton Digital Festival - deadline 24.04.2017 | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

The British Science Festival and Brighton Digital Festival are looking to co-commission a new digital artwork that will be presented in a gallery space at the University of Brighton, Edward St Campus throughout the British Science Festival and Brighton Digital Festival (5 September to 13 October 2017).

 

We are particularly interested in works that explore and respond to themes of place: the shifting horizons of physical and virtual environments; the possibilities of technology to reimagine, reinvent and reinterpret space and place, and new opportunities to facilitate collaboration and connect people, place and things.

 

We are looking for an original artwork or a significant development of an earlier piece. Proposals can involve online work but a thought-out exhibition proposal must be included. Proposals should be aimed at a public audience and a focus on public engagement and participation will be viewed favourably.

04.07.17 - Hack It! - Art Fest New Media Art #Hack

04.07.17 - Hack It! - Art Fest New Media Art #Hack | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Organized by Victoria Bradbury and the New Media 420 Advanced Interactive Design students

 

Hackathons first emerged in the commercial tech sector where people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming. Art Hacks branch off of this phenomenon while also stemming from art historical precedents of collaborative making practices in the New Media field. At this event, groups will combine computer code with traditional art materials to co-create projects. Hack It! DIY Dystopia will engage participants to combine code, microcontrollers and cardboard to envision, prototype and develop survival-oriented materials.

 

This event will involve two UNC Asheville classes. It is led by NM 420: Advanced Interactive Design with students from ARTS 178: Powerful Stories Freshman Colloquium as participants. Collaborative teams will work together for five hours to create a final techno-sculptural project considering the themes of survival and technology. (Anyone is welcome to come and observe the process while also participating in short-term hands-on activities on-site).

6 expériences de réalité virtuelle qui en disent long sur son potentiel - overview Kaléidoscope 2017 | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

La réalité virtuelle est souvent associée au jeu vidéo. Pourtant, de nombreux artistes produisent des « expériences » immersives, souvent courtes, dans lequel l’utilisateur n’agit pas, ou très peu. Mardi 1er mars, une trentaine étaient présentées à la Gaîté Lyrique, à Paris, dans le cadre de Kaléidoscope. Cet événement, entièrement consacré à ce type de production, faisait une halte dans la capitale française avant de poursuivre sa tournée internationale à Tel Aviv, Stockholm, Tokyo ou encore Melbourne.

Du dessin animé à la prise de vue réelle, de la poésie à l’horreur, de l’information au clip musical : tous les possibles de la réalité virtuelle étaient présentés, offrant un aperçu alléchant des potentiels de cette technologie. Sélection.

Artefact 2017: are technology and magical thinking really incompatible? by Regine Debatty (we make money not art)

Artefact 2017: are technology and magical thinking really incompatible? by Regine Debatty (we make money not art) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Final chapter of the report from the Artefact festival at STUK in Leuven (this way for the previous posts, ladies and gentlemen —> Dataghost 2. The kabbalistic computational machine and Artefact festival: Magic and politics.)

This year, the event looked at magic, its meaning, reach and role in contemporary culture and society. The topic was analyzed through various lenses: entertainment, politics, finance, technology, etc. 

 

The relationship between technology and magic is a particularly puzzling and interesting one. You’d think that progress in science and technology would automatically mark the demise of our interest for magical thinking and occult forms of knowledge. Far from it. It seems that humans have an inherent need to leave some space in their world for the unaccountable and the supernatural. That’s why progresses in science and technology have often been accompanied by the arrival or renewal of paranormal phenomena. The advent of photography, for example, saw a rise in the popularity of spiritism and photography was even used as a proofthat ghosts and other spiritual entities did indeed exist.

HeK - (House of electronic Arts Basel) /// art forms, new media and technologies // #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

HeK is dedicated to digital culture and the new art forms of the information age. It is a place for creative and critical discourse on the aesthetic, socio-political and economic impact of media technologies. HeK shows contemporary art that explores and configures new technologies; it promotes an aesthetic practice that uses information technology as a medium, makes it vividly accessible and actively intervenes in its processes. HeK thereby addresses the pressing issues of twenty-first-century culture and makes an active contribution to their future evolution.

As an interdisciplinary venue, the institution engages with all aspects of the current arts scene and thereby crosses traditional genre boundaries between the visual arts, music, theater, dance, performance and design. Its insights into art production at the intersection of the arts, the media and technology draw a broad public. In a diverse program comprised of exhibitions, mini-festival formats, performances, concerts and educational opportunities, HeK picks up on current social issues and the challenges posed by increasingly ubiquitous digitization...

Si l’on parle quasiment toujours des lines-up de Peacock Society, on s’attarde plus rarement sur les acteurs des différentes scénographies numériques innovantes qui font de ce festival une expérience multi sensorielle, qualifié à juste titre de «festival des cultures électroniques (…) de la musique aux arts visuels». Ces scénographies révolutionnent notre façon de vivre, de penser et de ressentir la musique en mettant le spectateur au centre du processus créatif.

Depuis sa création, l’agence WE LOVE ART – à l’origine du festival – œuvre pour la culture de demain dans les domaines de la musique, de la scénographie, des arts numériques et de la technologie en proposant des événements novateurs où les nouvelles technologies sont mises au service de la création et du public. Et ce n’est pas un hasard si l’agence a proposé deux années des créations dans le parcours officiel de la nuit blanche – en 2010 en collaboration avec 1024 Architecture ; et cette année sur le Pont des Invalides, pour une performance bluffante...


Une fois tous les deux mois, Beat à l’air vous emmène à la découverte des meilleures scénographies immersives mêlant art sonore et visuel.

Le Centre Pompidou présente Mutations / Créations, une nouvelle manifestation, tournée vers la prospective et l’interaction des technologies numériques avec la création ; un territoire partagé entre art, innovation et science. Transversale, aux croisements des disciplines, mêlant recherche, arts et ingénierie, cette manifestation annuelle convoque, pour sa première édition, la musique, le design et l’architecture. Elle propose deux expositions – « Imprimer le monde » et « Ross Lovegrove » –, le Forum Art-Innovation, intitulé « Vertigo », ainsi que des journées d’étude et des ateliers.

Chaque année, des expositions thématiques et monographiques s’articuleront à une programmation de rencontres et d’ateliers qui feront du Centre Pompidou un « incubateur », lieu de démonstrations de prototypes, d’expériences artistiques in vivo et d’échanges avec les créateurs. Cette plateforme sera aussi un observatoire critique et un outil d’analyse des impacts de la création sur la société. Comment les champs de création se sont-ils emparés des technologies numériques pour ouvrir de nouvelles perspectives industrielles ? Comment interrogent-ils les effets sociaux, économiques, politiques, les limites éthiques de ces développements industriels ? Quels enjeux pour les mutations formelles dans les domaines de la musique, de l’art, du design et de l’architecture au regard des avancées des technosciences ?
