"Field_Notes – Deep Time"

"Field_Notes – Deep Time" is a week long art&science field laboratory
organized by the Finnish Society of Bioart at the Kilpisjärvi Biological
Station in Lapland/Finland. Five working groups, hosted by Oron Catts,
Antero Kare, Leena Valkeapaa, Tere Vaden, Elisabeth Ellsworth and Jamie
Kruse, together with a team of five, will develop, test and evaluate
specific interdisciplinary approaches in relation to the "Deep Time"
theme.

"Field_Notes – Deep Time" is in search of artistic and scientific
responses to the dichotomy between human time-perception and
comprehension, and the time of biological, environmental, and geological
processes in which we are embedded. The local sub-Arctic nature,
ecology, and geology, as well as the scientific environment and
infrastructure of the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station will act as a
catalyst for the work carried out.

Keynotes by Roy Ascott and Jill Scott

The beginning of the 21st century is characterized by an overwhelming
awareness of environmental issues. Facing the threat of global warming,
the findings of scientific research have become a subject of intensive
political debate. The ethical questions traditionally discussed in the
green-wing marginals have become mainstream, as science has become a
coffee-table topic.

The field of art that interacts with the practices of science and its
technologies is commonly referred to as ART&SCIENCE. During the past
decades, this hybrid field has become more or less established, with
landmark works, major institutions and written histories. However, with
the new wave of environmentalism, a further wave of artists working with
methods and questions related to scientific research has also emerged.

The conference seeks to contextualize the practices of ART&SCIENCE both
in the contemporary political atmosphere and the history of contemporary
art.

The first day of the two-day conference focuses on the practices in
transformation as a result of research-orientation and
cross-disciplinarity, characteristic to the field of ART&SCIENCE.

The second day of the conference looks at the technologies of encounter
between human and non-human worlds. The aim is to address the ethical
discourse taking place in art practices which look at the interaction
between humans and non-humans.

ART AND TECHNOSCIENCE
- taiteen muuttuvat praktiikat

Kansainvälinen konferenssi, järjestäjänä Suomen Kuvataideakatemia,
yhteistyössä Biotaiteen seuran ja Pikseliähky - festivaalin kanssa

Aika: 24-25.3.2010 10-17h
Paikka: Auditorium, Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki, Kaikukatu 4.
Tilaisuus on avoin yleisölle. Vapaa pääsy.

Keynotes: Roy Ascott ja Jill Scott

2000-luvun alkua leimaa ympäristökysymysten voimallinen
politisoituminen. Ilmastonmuutoksen edessä tieteellisestä
tutkimuksesta on tullut poliittisen tarkastelun kohde ja kiihkeiden
väittelyiden välikappale. Perinteisesti vihreään marginaaliin liitetyt
aiheet ovat virranneet valtavirtaan, samalla kun tieteestä on tullut
kahvipöytäkeskustelujen puheenaihe.

Tieteen ja teknologian suhteita tarkasteleva, leimallisesti monialainen
ja poikkitieteinen nykytaiteenalue otsikoidaan usein sananparilla
ART&SCIENCE. Viime vuosikymmenten aikana tämä perinteisiä genrerajoja
ylittävä kenttä on vakiinnuttanut asemansa: merkkiteokset ja alan
instituutiot ovat jo osa taiteen kirjoitettua historiaa.
Ympäristökysymysten politisoitumisen myötä on kuitenkin noussut esiin
uusi aalto tieteen ja sen teknologioiden parissa työskenteleviä
taiteilijoita.

Konferenssi pyrkii hahmottamaan art&science -kentän praktiikoita sekä
suhteessa ajankohtaisiin poliittisiin kysymyksiin, että nykytaiteen
perinteisiin.

Konferenssin ensimmäinen päivä keskittyy taiteen muuttuviin
praktiikoihin tutkimuksellisuuden ja poikkitieteellisyyden seurauksena.

Konferenssin toinen päivä tarkastelee ihmisen ja ei-inhimillisen
suhteita määrittäviä kohtaamisen teknologioita ja niitä eettisiä
kysymyksiä, joita ihmisen ja ei-inhimillisen suhteita tieteen kehyksessä
käsittelevä taide nostaa esiin.

Konferenssin puhujina ovat mm.
Pau Alsina (tutkija, ESP)
Roy Ascott (taiteilija, teoreetikko, UK)
Laura Beloff (taiteilija, tutkija FI)
Erich Berger (taiteilija, suunnittelija ArsBioarctica, AUT/FI)
Andy Gracie (taiteilija, UK/ESP)
Terike Haapoja (taiteilija, tutkija FI)
Eija Juurola (MTT, ekologi, FI)
Jan Kaila (taiteilija, professori, KuvA, FI)

INTERFACE AND SOCIETY
In our everyday life we constantly have to cope more or less successfully
with interfaces. We use the mobile phone, the mp3 player, and our laptop, in
order to gain access to the digital part of our life. In recent years this
situation has lead to the creation of new interdisciplinary subjects like
Interaction Design or Physical Computing.

Currently we live between two worlds, our physical environment and the
digital space. Technology and its digital space are our second nature and
the interfaces are our points of access to this techno sphere.

This division will dissolve into a seamless distribution of information
technology into most aspects of our life, advertised as ubiquitous
computing. Immaterial information and physical objects will fuse into an
Internet of Things. Our world will transform into an interface as a whole.

Since artists started working with technology they have been developing
interfaces and modes of interaction. The interface itself became an artistic
thematic in its technical, social and political dimensions.

INTERFACE and SOCIETY investigates artistic strategies and practices which
deal with and build upon the transformation of our everyday life through
information technology and electronic interfaces.

With the rapid technological development a thoroughly critique of the
interface towards society is necessary. The contribution of the artist
thereby is relevant. S/he takes the freedom to deal with technologies beyond
form, function and usability. The utilisation of an eclectic range of
strategies and practices guaranties a diversity of results.

Interface and Society is produced by Atelier Nord in collaboration with
Henie Onstad Kunstsenter and Le Monde Diplomatique (Nordic Edition).
Supported by Arts Council Norway and Freedom of Expression Foundation, Oslo.

INTERFACE and SOCIETY

In our everyday life we constantly have to cope more or
less successfully with interfaces. We use the mobile phone,
the mp3 player, and our laptop, in order to gain access to
the digital part of our life. In recent years this situation
has lead to the creation of new interdisciplinary subjects
like "Interaction Design" or "Physical Computing".

We live between two worlds, our physical environment and the
digital space. Technology and its digital space are our second
nature and the interfaces are our points of access to this
technosphere.

Since artists started working with technology they have been
developing interfaces and modes of interaction. The interface
itself became an artistic thematic.

The project INTERFACE and SOCIETY investigates how artists deal
with the transformation of our everyday life through technical
interfaces.
With the rapid technological development a thoroughly
critique of the interface towards society is necessary.

The role of the artist is thereby crucial. S/he has the freedom
to deal with technologies and interfaces beyond functionality
and usability. The project INTERFACE and SOCIETY is looking at
this development with a special focus on the artistic contribution.

INTERFACE and SOCIETY is an umbrella for a range of
