The notion of Life is defined and redefined with shifts in cultural narratives and emerging technologies. From inquiry into ecological awareness around climate change to making with life, artists and designers give shape and fresh new perspectives to the invisible things that make up our collective existence of life.
What are ways that we narrate and tell stories of ecology & living things? How does language affect our history and in turn our ways of seeing? This talk explores poetic inquiries and investigations in simulations of life, machine-generated Life forms, aesthetics of perception & biological sensing. By examining new processes and tools for exploring paths less crossed we strengthen the foundations for art’s critical inquiry and intervention in such spaces. The talk is an invitation to community and support artists and designers in the context of emerging biological technologies through integrating models for collaboration and new creative engagement with the sciences.
