Electronic Visualisation and the Arts
7 & 9 July 2015
While technology is overgrowing our primal environments, transferring our activities into intermediary electronic environments, how do we adapt our cognition to increasing complexity of Cyberia’s (Rushkoff 1994) information landscapes? During the inevitable and persistent uploading of our minds into cyberspace how do we envision evolution of our cognitive organs inventing the technology that at the same time influences us through a feedback loop? If artists remain at the forefront by recognising the changes, deviations, traps and advantages of such feedback loops, should the mindset of our mutating cognitive organism be that of an artist? How are engineers participating in the creative act of an artist? These and other questions will be addressed in this research in order to consider both the design of the electronic environments we are submerging ourselves into and the fertility of such terrains to grow and augment our minds.
