Ars Electronica – a historic institutions which every September gathers together the most brilliant professionals and theorists engaged in research at the crossroads between art and technology, continues its work with Ars Electronica Home Delivery.
This is not just a guided tour of its exhibitions. It is this too. But it also offers the opportunity to visit the Machine Learning Studio, concerts with real-time visualisations, Deep Space Live sessions, workshops with engineers and conversations with artists and scientists from around the world. It is, therefore, a programme that has developed from Ars Electronica’s original mission, one rooted in the relationship between art, technology and society. “Our educational mission is to enter into a dialogue on current developments in art, technology and society”, says Gerfried Stocker. To this end, they are working on hybrid delivery models.
It is now possible to connect remotely to the laboratory facilities that, over the years, have joined with FabLab and that, just last year, inaugurated an entire laboratory floor with MaterialLab, BioLab and CitizenLab. Animations will also have their own live space dedicated to films and meetings with artists in which the public can participate. The award that Ars Electronica has established for this category has now reached its 23rd edition.
Its first experimental phase started on May 1st with a concert from the piano room of the Ars Electronica Center where Maki Namekawa and Dennis Russell Davies played Ma Mère L’Oye by Maurice Ravel, accompanied by real-time visualisations created by Cori O’Lan.
