[Yasmin_discussions] ars electronica discussion

lorenzo

i wasnt at ars this year so i am hesitant to comment
on specifics- when ars was founded i was on many
of the first juries and worked closely with hannes
and christine

i dont know if anyone has looked at the history of ars
roger malina- oliver and wendy have a new book:

Museum and Archive on the Move
Changing Cultural Institutions in the Digital Era
English, DeGruyter, Munich September 2017
ISBN 978-3-11-052963-0 - 324 pp.

which maybe covers it- ars has had a huge influence
on the growth of our community or practice over the decades
championing the pioneers in emerging practice

like many organisations they have had to be agile as
the political and funding climates have changed- its a different
world than 30 years ago

the good news is that many sectors of society are now
paying attention to the work of our community- with conflicting
interests and directions

on the one hand the current that drives the argument
on innovation theory arguments and transfer of knowledge
and techiques to the commerncial sector

on the other hand the desire for how the arts,design and humanities
can not only critique but drive alternative approaches rather than
backing into the future ( i think of stiegler and ars industrialis for instance)

one of the arguments in the usa that disturbs me a bit, not sure why,
is the argument here that stem to steam can help attract more women
and non white professionals into the industry -as you know in the usa
not enought students go into science and technology so there is a brain
drain from other countries to silicon valley ( when the gender and diversity
of employees is not good)

i think the real problem is systemic and we should be teaching and using stem
areas differently- someone here said privately that maybe we can
use the arts 'to trap students' into going into stem careers- i was internally
scandalised by this remark as if science and engineering are so unpleasant
you have to trap students !!!


as i said i was not at ars this year but i know there was a yasmin get together
there

ars like all of our network of network organisations are navigating among
the various pressure groups and interests of funders- and its fantastic
that they have been able to navigate the unstable cultural environments
we live in

i hope people who were at ars this week will join the discussion
launched by lorenzo

roger

[Yasmin_discussions] DIGITALIFE

Hallo Yasminers
So, no interventions on Ars electronica.
It seems that discussing about the festival Ars Electronica is not attractive, but when we met in Linz there were about 15 people from the list, as Nina Czegledy wrote in her mail about the (very nice) meeting she organized.
Festivals are not the answer to many questions, i agree, but it's something that allow us to verify several things.
For instance how the art/science problem is seen at a public level, outside university courses and digital-research centers.
There is now a Festival just opened in Rome.
It's called "Digitalife", it's inside a wider festival, "RomaEuropa Festival" existing since many years and mostly dedicated to cross overs between theatre, performance, music and visual arts.
The "Digitalife" itself has been slowly growing in the past years as a small section of the fest and now is in a very central space, not far from Colosseo.
The language cross over is still central in the exhibition choices but there is a cicle of meetings with researchers organized by Prof. Massimo Bergamasco from the University of Pisa (supposed to be one of the most advanced universities in Italy for scientific research). The prof himself founded a laboratory of "Robotic perceptive" and last year did show a Robot made in the laboratory designed to help handicapped people.
Famous scientific reasearcher & Nobel prize Rita Levi Montalcini used to protest with government for scarce founding for research in Italy.
Nonetheless we have some bright people coming from University Jungles and producing ideas, like Arduino for instance.
The weight of the festival is very much on the visual languages and there are names well known to many: Dumb Type, Jean Michel Bruyère, Granular Synthesis, Robert Henke.
Anyway i always considered a false step the "Damnation Memoriae" of early techno art against the video languages.
The kinematic languages are still very central, more and more central in the technology universe.
The Futurist legacy in italian art has an interesting history as you know and pushes toward the merging of languages through technology.
If anyone will pass through Rome the Festival is open in "Palazzo delle Esposizioni" till the 7 January.
I hope to have interesting ideas to transmit from the meetings.
Best

[Yasmin_discussions] the international controversies around the PhD in Art and Design

yasminers

As you will know PhDs in Art and Design are proliferating around the planet
with vary largely varying approaches- and there is much debate around
the rigor that is not always being used in the variety of programs

The editors for this 3 year Leonardo project are Ken Friedman and Jack Ox

They bring to our attention the first articles now available- with a call
for proposals for articles

Within the STEAM to STEM discussion a core issue is the very different
research and teaching techniques used in STEM as compared with Arts,
Design and Humanities.

Ken and Jack also in an introductory text overview the debates that are
ongoing and the serious issues involved

here is their announcement

we welcome yasminers thoughts and provocations !!

Roger Malina

[Yasmin_discussions] stem to steam; averting a tragedy of the internet

yasminers

one of the issues that has been coming up as the stem to steam discussion
moving forward is how to avert the developing 'tragedy of the internet' by
analogy with the 'tragedy of the commons"

eg see https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2012/05/the-tragedy-of-the-internet-commons/257290/

at the commoning charrette this last summer the group proposed a
number of strategies

http://patternsofcommoning.org/

one of the concepts is a 'gated commons' by analogy to the
agricultural land which had shared commons would have "gates)
for instance http://www.hopkinscattlegrids.co.uk/grids which would
led pedestrians into the commons but not cattle unless accompanied
by a human

( not the concept of patterning in commons development draws on
the work of chris alexander: https://www.patternlanguage.com/ )

our new arteca.mit.edu is using this pattern of commoning
to create a collaboration commons for the art science technology community

here is an area humanities scholars in stem to steam could play an active
role on how we avert the developing tragedy of the internet- steam ahead ?!

[Yasmin_discussions] HEAT rather than STEAM ?

>From scott Hartley

Dear Roger,


I do believe you might enjoy my book, THE FUZZY AND THE TECHIE: Why
the Liberal Arts Will Rule the Digital World at Leonardo. The book,
which was a Financial Times business book of the month, argues for the
Liberal Arts in addition to STEM.


Roger, I also wanted to share a piece that I think you and Yasminers will enjoy:

https://venturebeat.com/2017/09/30/dear-tech-world-stemism-is-hurting-us/



While we obsess over STEM and now STEAM, this article argues for HEAT,
which stands for Humanities, Engineering, Arts, and Technology. I
think this does a better job summing up the necessity for breadth
beyond only arts and tech.



All the best,

Scott
