There is a similarity between art and technology and the same link between energy and matter. And this is all thanks to the digital that inextricably links expressive and visual forms with information.
On the one hand, the representation of data increasingly needs the creative input to give strength and comprehensibility to complexity, think of the forms of representation of flows in meteorology and digital geography; on the other hand, art lives a total symbiosis with technology, which has become both matters, think of color, or the forms of three-dimensional modeling with their textures and illumination, and medium: there is no brush, point or lens that is not a digital tool.
The first of the big issues we address with the News Atlas of Digital Art is the relationship between art, science, and technology.
Going beyond the issue of science popularization, talks will cover the relationship between mutual contamination and inspiration, and how this brings forward joint reflection on the challenges of our time. The role of artistic research in business and various models of cross-fertilization for sustainable innovation will also be covered. Light will be shed on new art forms emerging from this in-disciplinary contamination that have their originality of language.
The Meeting is being developed as part of the ST+ARTS initiative with the Regional STARTS Centers Project “Repairing the present” sponsored by the European Commission.
