      Coded Communication: Digital Senses and Aesthetics, Merging Art and Life

      Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2017) (EVA)
      Electronic Visualisation and the Arts
      11 – 13 July 2017
      Digital aesthetics, Digital art, Digital culture, Digital humanities, Digitalism


            This one-day symposium framed several central questions in digital practice and digital theory, examining historical and contemporary themes across art, science and the humanities. Art has been transformed by the digital age, changing the tools and processes of practice, moving to digital expressions and digital seeing. These changes are balanced by the recurrent questions of the human condition, and of the ways that art both defines and transcends its time. In what ways does digital art address the social, cultural and historical debates of this time, without being simply determined by its technologies? And how can emergent disciplines around digital aesthetics and the digital humanities converse with the work of artists, innovators and technologists? In what ways does the new digital palette afforded by contemporary media open new ways of seeing, sensing and understanding the world? The symposium organisers invited a range of artists and theorists to discuss these themes, framed in the broader contexts of electronic visualisation and digital art of the EVA London conference.
