Concept

Technological progress and the usage of technical devices is just what art borrows from science in our age of digitalisation. Lets try to perceive the algorithm just as we perceive the golden ratio: a tool to a very old question.

Let’s explore the digital range in art and foster its creations by trying to figure out how the computer interacts with our creativity. 

Approach

To discover innovative digital art and culture, audiences have to manoeuvre a labyrinth of academic discourse, early stage technological experimentation and commercial appropriation. Unsurprisingly, creators and art professionals face similar challenges in finding appropriate outlets to present their works and are confronted with exuberant fees to participate in international art fairs.

Digital technology has permeated every aspect of our lives, including the arts. With technological innovation growing at an exponential rate, the arts provide a unique space for the critical reflection on current disruptions and future prospects of society. At the same time, today’s creatives employ an exciting new toolset in their work and provide audiences with the opportunity to familiarise themselves first-hand with the possibilities (and limitations) of new technologies.


Art challenges technology, and technology inspires art.
