PROCEEDINGS OF THE IV DIGITAL ARTS' SEMINAR: RECURRENCIES AND HIBRIDAZATIONS
Realities of art, science and technology
Pablo Gobira (Orgs.)
The book "Contemporany Routes: Realities of art, science and technology" showcases a diversity of ways to look at art, science and technoly with its chapters being written by professors and researchers and doctors that are benchmark on the field of studies of those relationships.
The main themes are addressed through a number of correlations that showcase different levels through different points of view.
Also themes of this compilation are: alchemy, reality and lie, museums and sights, interactor and the reception of the artwork, virtual reality and the handmade dimention that it implicates, hybridasations, heritage and memory preservation, technical and poetical images, among others.
This book's works reveal ways of reading different realities. The important researches that make this book show us paths and end up chosing and walking one or more routes, one or more realities. Its up to the reader(s) from then on to analise and construct their own way of reading into it, their own route, searching for a way not only to go beyond, but to see beyond the shine ad glittering without swerving their eyes.
Technological art and culture
Pablo Gobira & Tadeus Mucelli (Orgs.)
(...) There are at least two meanings in which post-digital can be understood.
First, considering the prefix "post" in its temporal meaning, "after", post-digital would be referring to everything that came after the expanding and refined installation of computational algorithms in all human activities. It is a neutral, strictly chronological sense. But there is also a critical sense: it is necessary to go through its gains and losses. This is what is meant by "post-digital". Gone are the days of euphoria, by the way, accompanied by dysphoria that in its extremes nostalgically announced the apocalypse. Fortunately, a time of exceeding thoughts concerning the digital has gone. Now is time to face its ambivalences, paradoxes and contradictions. This is precisely what has been called "post-digital".
The book contains a myriad of perspectives, fine prismatic subdivisions of the technological art in its digital features with specific details of the production that makes use of new generation devices and resources, such as kinect cameras,multi interactive media, cyber interventions, mixed and augmented reality, three-dimensional modeling, programmable environments, complex algorithms, neural helmets, etc. On the other hand, the book is punctuated with theoretical and critical essays in which the new conditions of the museum, artists’ books, hybrid arts, authorship, digital art festival, digital cinematography and last but not least, geophysical materiality and geochemistry of the media are rethought and faced in the light of the most current challenges.
