Artnodes publishes a new series of interviews with international experts in digital art and culture
Artnodes, the UOC'ï¿½s internet space on the interrelations between art, science and technology, is to publish six new interviews with international experts on digital art, which are to remain on the website permanently. This series of interviews reflects on some of the hottest issues in digital art and culture, including surveillance technology, the effects of software on our daily lives and virtual reality communities.
On this occasion, the experts interviewed are Erkki Huhtamo (Associate Professor at the University of California, Los Angeles), Andreas Broeckmann (artistic director of Transmediale), Alex Galloway (programmer and Professor of digital media at New York University), Jonah Brucker-Cohen (digital artist and researcher), David Rokeby (digital artist) and Marc Downie (artist and artificial intelligence researcher).
These experts discuss issues such as the effects of software on our daily lives, the development of media archaeology, surveillance technology in artistic projects, physical toy interfaces linked to surveillance software, connected virtual reality communities and the creation of sound by virtual reality creatures.
The interviews and videos, made by Pau Alsina (Professor at UOC), Alba Colombo (Berlinale) and Pau Waelder (Artactiva), will remain on Artnodes permanently. Artnodes usually publishes documents to inspire theoretical reflection on or historical study of this field of interdisciplinary creativity.
