WORKSHOPS: Masterclass: Art in the age of Information| Aggelos Floros
Art in the age of Information
This masterclass addresses the issue of ‘Information’ on Art’s Research and Practice. It examines the influence of the Information Era in our everyday life. In the decade of the 70s several additions came out in Arts and Design having their roots in technological and scientific progress. Arts, Technology, Sciences and Humanitarian Studies compose a multidisciplinary syllabus providing a new set of tools and methods leading artists and designers to a different way of thinking and practicing. Those tools help the creators to work on crucial issues of our society and especially those that are related with digital forms, such as data and metadata, in Modern Times. The lectures introduce open technologies as an established method for artistic practice combining software and hardware providing a common ground to artists and creators globally.
