Coding as Concept Art
In a frame of the manifestation Glowing Globe, Science-Fiction-Art, and in a collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, Wolf Lieser will have a lecture and presentation in the theatre space Gorgona at 6 pm.
The idea to condense an aesthetic concept with coding in an algorithm was revolutionary in the 1960s. The challenge was picked up by some visionary artists represented in the Avant-garde in Art. It took 50 years before the art world finally came to acknowledge the potential and the pioneering efforts of these artists. Digital Art in its core is a code based art with the new developments of machine learning, artificial intelligence, augmented reality and virtual reality. This art form will majorly effect the contemporary arts in the 21st century.
