Colliding Worlds – where contemporary art meets technology
Contemporary Art – meet Science and Technology. Professor Arthur I Miller of UCL will be at Shoreditch House to explore exactly how cutting-edge science is redefining contemporary art, the subject of his latest book ‘Colliding Worlds’. Science, engineering, computers, and algorithms are inspiring artists today, just as nature, hate, love and death used to inspire them. Arthur will explain the new and exciting era of digital contemporary art as artists strive to depict the wonders of our age of information – take a look at huge data sets worked aesthetically, sculpting with sound, folding together concepts of art with physics, using living matter to manipulate inert materials into new and beautiful forms, and artists who are striving to investigate what changes chip implants, gene transplants, and 3D printed organs make to our idea of what it is to be human. Understand the future of art with Professor Miller.
Following his presentation Arthur will be in conversation with the pioneering computer artist Professor William Latham of Goldsmiths College, an artist/scientist/technologist.
