> Programme


The sixth Art Meeting will deal with issues relating to Digital Art both on an artistic and a theoretical level. The polymorphous evolution of new art addresses the key issue of the interface as the place of interaction between the human senses and digital code. The interface (graphical and touch screens, graphical and textual terminals, operator panels, active matrices, head-mounted displays, multimedia helmets, sensory gloves and data suits, electronic prostheses, optical and physico-chemical sensors...) is understood here as the zone of threshold communication that links the biology of the human world with the mathematic-processual aspects of the calculator and the virtual reality it generates.

This year’s Meeting attempts to compare examples from the field of art with theoretical analysis viewed from the perspective of sociology, anthropology, semiotics, and cognitive science..., in order to track the changes brought about by digital technology in the art context as well as their contribution to the creation, recording and diffusion of artistic aspects of contemporary art. It will cover such situations as the emergence and creation of the work of art, the evolving attitude of the artist, and new artistic developments engendered by the use of interfaces.
