      Abstract

      This one-day Symposium explored themes of personhood, modernity and digital art, bringing together speakers from a range of disciplines to consider technology, artistic practice and society. It seeks a renewed consideration of the role of art in illuminating human identity in a positive relation with technology, and its transformative effects upon space and time. The concerns for the role of art amidst the forces of a post-modern world are influenced by important legacies of the past, by which ideas about human identity and difference have been made meaningful in the relation of history and technology. In the frequently transient and conflicting forces of humanness and forces of modernity, the digital world of the arts emerges as a means by which new ideas of space and time can be considered, with new perspectives of human identity seen as states of being, towards the possibilities of experience, technology, individuality and society.

        Galois Connections: Mathematics, Art, and Archives

        Évariste Galois (1811–1832) has been increasingly recognised as an important mathematician who despite his short life developed mathematical ideas that today have led to applications in computer science (such as Galois connections) and elsewhere. Some of Galois’ mathematics can be visualised in interesting and even artistic ways, aided using software. In addition, a significant corpus of the historical documentation on Galois and his family (including his brother Alfred Galois, who was an artist), can now be accessed online as a growing number of institutional archives digitise their collections. This paper introduces some of the mathematics of Galois, ways in which it can be visualised, and also considers the issues and new opportunities with respect to visualising information on Galois and his family (including the connections between them). Although the story of Galois and his close relations can be seen as one of tragedy with lives cut short, from a historical viewpoint Évariste Galois’ contribution to humankind has been a triumph.
