Is Technology Killing our creativity?

Is Technology Killing our creativity? questions whether artificial creativity is a help or a hindrance to human imagination

Names of those involved in the Team: Aurélie Freoua, Shirley Renwick, Damien Borowik 

When & Where:

Tues - Sun (12:00 - 18:00)
Welcome Area - Automation, Creativity & Technology
Arts Work of the Future Tate Exchange, Tate Modern, London 

Programme & Activities:

Drawing with Machine (mechanical)

  • Real-time drawing with machine through interaction (example). Using a touch-screen, the audience will be able to control the machine. Because the machine cannot handle a lot of information at any one time, the audience will need to learn how to interface with the machine (see example).

  • Drawing with machine through coding (example). The audience and creatives will be able to engage with the machine through code using Processing, manipulating simple algorithm though repetition to create intricate drawings.

  • The audience will be able to leave with their drawing (A6, A5, A4) as a memorabilia.

Drawing with Code (machine)

  • Real-time pattern making in Processing (example 1, example 2)
    Using a push button LED interface (Monome), the audience will be able to manipulate a system of ‘particles’ which simulates visual artefacts using physical properties such as mass, gravity and speed.

Painting with code (human and machine)

  • Shapes inter-relating (Projection onto a canvas)

Programmed by human using deliberate random technological tool

Allows for human touch to be implied and actual

(Addition of human shadows on the screen from passers by as week progresses, plus projected with words highlighting concepts around creativity and technology).

Painting Transformation (human and machine)

  • Human Paintings Projection Mapped onto 3D surfaces showing technology helping human artists present work in exciting new creative ways.

Collaborative Painting (human and machine)

  • Collaboration with public showing technology and human working together to create an artwork based on hand images and projections.  Shows how human creativity is advanced with increased display options. Projecting onto ceiling/floor around the space.

Painting with light (human and machine)

  • Collaboration with public showing technology and human collaboration through tools which let artists paint with light onto surfaces.  Shows how human creativity is advanced with increased display options.

 

Welcome Area - Automation, Creativity & Technology

Welcome Area - Visitors are welcomed into the event by a mock hologram of a talking cyborg, providing an overview of what is happening on the floor. Alongside the relaxed welcome area you are invited to get hands on by helping us what Arts Work of the Future means, through exploring & questioning automation and technology

Incubator One: Are Humans Sustainable?

This incubator explores the potential of the human species to survive and thrive within new technological environments. Please see below Digital Maker Collective and Guest Industry/Sector/Edu/Maker Provocations

Incubator Two: What is the future of interaction?

This incubator will rethink virtual and physical space with interactive audio and visual projects . Please see below Digital Maker Collective and Guest Industry/Sector/Edu/Maker Provocations
