In collaboration with the artist John Bardakos, the Pearl Art Museum organizes a cycle of three lectures whose theme is "Noesis in Art and Technology". This Sunday 27 January from 2pm to 5pm you can attend this first session.
In the same spirit of the exhibition on view at PAM, "(Re) Model The World: 20 Years of Digital Creation" in collaboration with Le Fresnoy - National Studio for Contemporary Arts, we have the honor to invite John Bardakos to talk about his conception of digital art and the link he sees with other mathematical, biological or poetic concepts.
How to conceive of space, time, reality, data in the world of digital art?
What is the meaning of this "Neosis" in art and Technology?
This first lecture, "The Poetics of Technoetics", introduces three layers in which Roy Ascott's "Technoetics" can manifest and become a generator for aesthetics. The artist will explain us the first apporach into this way of thinking and doing (as a loop in an art and technology context) revolves around multiple perception of realities. The lecture offers a framework to think in all these realities is Cybernetics, a method of exploring information flow in systems of art. This discourse allows a pure structural way of openess.
