Ina Conradi & Mark Chavez; Media Art Nexus Studio will present “An Exploration of Quantum Science with Generated Techniques.” They have been creating content for a large-scale LED platform at Nanyang Technological University Singapore for the past five years; where artists, scientists, and engineers meet, exchange ideas, and collaborate. Mark and Ina’s presentation will elaborate on their creative research initiatives from artworks that inform the casual audience of aspects of quantum mechanics with cultural archetypes to innovative animated, co-immersive spaces viewed by thousands of people at the university daily. On "Moirai: Thread of Life," they worked with theoretical quantum physicists and previsualized with A.I. this experimental animation, (2022). These most recent works explore the unique artistic potential of A.I. and Machine Learning, investigating how to apply this technique to the creative process for inspiration and as a final medium of expression. This collaboration with machine learning facilitates the creation of new landscapes where artists, poets, musicians, scientists, and philosophers can more easily actuate incredible imaginary worlds. Ina and Mark's talk will inform the casual audience of aspects of quantum mechanics with cultural archetypes to innovative animated, co-immersive spaces.
Victoria Vesna will join us. For this event, she will lead the audience on site and online simultaneously in a hybrid collective meditation: ALIEN STAR DUST: Signal to Noise. Bring your headphones! She is the innovative professor, from the UCLA Department of Design Media Arts; uses digital technology to help reshape conceptions of art. With her installations she investigates how communication technologies affect collective behavior and perceptions of identity shift in relation to scientific innovation. Her work is focused on environmental issues and involves long-term collaborations with composers, nano-scientists, neuroscientists and evolutionary biologists. At the Art Sci center, she is currently is collaborating with curator Anuradha Vikram on a large exhibition, "Atmosphere of Sound: Sonic Arts in Times of Climate Disruption," for the Getty museum’s Pacific Standard Time PST: Art X Science (2024).
Jon 9 will play his latest version of "2025: The HISTORY OF THE FUTURE" Trilogy is an experiential long-form narrative representing the future of storytelling. The transmedia format includes many different story elements presented on a variety of media in both physical and virtual spaces. Non-linear in structure, the experience can take different forms for different individuals depending on where, when and how they engage with the multi-faceted story world. In 2025 most people will live their lives entirely online, as complex avatars in hyper-real virtual worlds - working, playing and loving in elaborate 3D virtual environments, linked through the Metaverse via a global quantum backbone operating at the speed of thought.
