    We have collected for you the most interesting registered lectures, meetings and discussion panels that have taken place at CCA ŁAŹNIA as part of the Art + Science Meeting programme since the beginning of the project in 2011. The events have been grouped by category.     LECTURES   Witold Libionka - When are the robots going to be replaced by humanoids?     Both artists and scientists are exploring the brain, trying to create its images, sculptures and installations of it or – on the other hand – AI and neural networks. Specialization in the various fields of knowledge narrowed and scattered the scope of these researches, provoking discussion about the need to develop a platform that connects both artistic and scientific communities. More and more often we feel the need for consilience – united knowledge, whose various do

In this sense, the studiolo is the origin of a modern laboratory. During "Studiolo. Cosmic gardens" exhibition we will present contemporary studiolo, an experimental space for research and plant growth in an unusual conditions. The research will be grouped into three blocks: first one devoted to biological materials, the second to technologies that allows to form them and use as a growth medium, and the third shows the range of behaviors of plants cultivated in extreme conditions.

To Modernity | A. Leszczyński

Texts | 24-11-2016
Modernity and backwardness are obviously not only a matter of technology – not even mainly a matter of technology. They have never been. The material symbols of modernity – factories, tanks and schools in the 20th century, and motorways, fast trains, broadband Internet and high tech in the 21st century – show only one part and not even the most obvious one of the gigantic undertakings aimed at bringing backward countries to modernity. These attempts have been made many times in many countries on different continents and in different cultural and political contexts – including at least several attempts in Poland. At present, when the notion of modernisation is being used by Polish politicians from both the left and from the right side of the political scene it is important to know that we are not moving around on virgin territory.   *** How to catch up with the West?. This is the question which the elites of poor and peripheral countries have asked themselves for at least 300 years. It didn’t take too much time – in some countries it didn’t take longer than several decades, and only the most resistant required over a hundred years – for the economic and military advantages of the West, as well as its higher standard of living enjoyed by its citizens, to become a subject of admirat

As an important part of her practices, she writes texts showcasing the performative process of art&science project development (e.g. “Art&science: Autoetnografia artystki realizującej projekty w laboratoriach biologicznych” in Kultura i społeczeństwo; “Ciało w świecie post-natury – byty liminalne. Projekt safe suicide” in Cięcie ciał-ruchome obrazy). In her work, she emphasises the epistemic and didactic dimensions of art.

    Patrick Tresset

    A French artist and scientist who investigates human artistic activity, computational creativity and our relation to machines, in particular our relations with robotic entities. In the context of his art practice, Patrick uses robotics to create autonomous robotics entities that are evocative representations of the artist, and in a certain manner a representation of himself. His robots are based on advanced technologies using research findings from robotics, computer vision, artificial intelligence and cognitive computing. Patrick encountered and practiced computing, painting, drawing and sculpture from an early age in France. Following a degree in Business Computing, he migrated to London to become a painter. Between 1991 and 2003 his work was exhibited in solo and group shows in London and Paris. In 2003, Patrick lost his ability to paint and draw, he has since been working on computational and robotic systems that are able to simulate these artistic activities. Patrick’s research led him to join Goldsmiths, University of London, to study for a Master of Sciences in Arts Computing and until 2013, he codirected the AIkon II project with Prof. Frederic Fol Leymarie. The AIkon II project investigated the observational sketching activity through computational modeling and robotics. Patrick also created the creative robotics course taught to postgraduatestudents at Goldsmiths as part of the MFA Computational Arts programme. Patrick was recently a Senior fellow at the Zukunftskolleg, University of Konstanz in Germany and is a currently a visiting research fellow at Goldsmiths University of London, United Kingdom. As a researcher he has published academic papers in the fields of artificial intelligence, computational aesthetics, computational creativity, social robotics, drawing research, digital arts and computer graphics. Patrick’s work has been internationally exhibited in solo and group shows, in association with major museums suc
