THE FRONTIERS OF ART AND TECH: THE IMAGINATION PARADOX
Panel by Mynah Marie, Julian Reyes, Amos Gaynes, quendera and Batuhan Bintas
Once upon a time, we believed art was the one field that was strictly human, but recent developments in technology are proving us wrong. Poetry, music, lyrics, images, and much more are now being generated by AI, re-shaping our reality and the way we think about human imagination in unprecedented ways.
As immersive virtual worlds become more sophisticated and prominent in our lives, is our ability to use our imagination slowly becoming irrelevant? If the impossible can now be made possible in a parallel world, how do we redefine our concept of what’s “real”? And do coders and engineers even realize, or care about, the massive role they play in influencing our culture?
Join moderator Mynah Marie and panelists Julian Reyes, Amos Gaynes, quendera and Batuhan Bintas to explore the frontiers of art and tech.
LIVE ALGORITHMIC AUDIOVISUALS
Performance by Not Binary Code (quendera and ndr0n)
Code is logical, functional and binary. Is it then compatible with artistic practice? What would non-binary code look like?
Live-coding is the practice of typing and executing chunks of computer code that, in real time, generate audio and video outputs.
In this performance, quendera and ndr0n will show the potential of this technique to empower artists and coders to create novel ways of artistic expression.
