    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

Roy Ascott, professor at the University of Plymouth, one of the leading contemporary artists and theorists in the field of new media. He specializes in cybernetics and telematics, focusing on the influence of digital and telecommunication networks on consciousness. Dedicated and persistent in his search for new creativity in the educational system, he has been fired from different universities three times. He has introduced many new concepts, such as technoetics, which refers to the field where art, science, technology and consciousness merge, or wetware/moist media. He constantly searches for alternative concepts of consciousness, travels the world and enjoys ayahuasca. He is President of Planetary Collegium and lecturer at De Tao Academy in Shanghai. In 2014 he received the prestigious Prix Ars Electronica Golden Nica for Pioneering and Visioning in New Media Art. On May 18, 2016, together with Stelarc, he was awarded the honorary doctorate by the Department of Audiovisual Arts at the Aegean University in Corfu for his breakthrough achievements in contemporary art, science, and theory.   Your theory and practice are primarily related to the concepts of participation and participatory art.

    Monika Fleischmann & Strauss Wolfgang

    German artists and scientists, pioneers of interactive media art.   Since the very beginning of their artistic and scientific activity they have used computer both as a tool and medium. Their experimental research focuses on the interactivity in art and knowledge environment, as well as on the expanded and networked space used as interface. Learning new things from old things is one of the working methods applied to new media that they have invented for their use. Their ideas concerning visual presentation of information and computer-oriented models of navigation and dialogue have for twenty years now influenced the development of modern technoculture in the context of interactivity.   The work of Monika Fleischmann & Wolfgang Strauss has earned them a Golden Nica of Prix Ars Electronica and numerous other honorary awards, and is constantly archived by ZKM (Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie) in Karlsruhe.   Monika Fleischmann is a German media artist and scientist and Professor for Media Art and Theory of the University of Applied Sciences, Bremen. Since 1997 she has been Head of Media Arts & Research Studies, the MARS – Exploratory Media Lab at the Fraunhofer Institute IAIS. Her multifaceted education – digital media, visual arts, theatre play and fashion design – makes her an expert in media arts & technology, media art education, curating digital media (arts) and scenography. Her main research topic is to extend the concept of communication through interaction and participation on the base of perceptive processes. In 1999 she started – together with Giaco Schiesser and the Knowbotic Research group – a New Media Department at the University for Art & Design in Zürich. In 2000/01 the Time Fast Forward magazine ranks Monika Fleischmann among the “People to Watch”. Her work is internationally recognized and awarded: In 1992, &ldquo

She earned her MA degree at the Faculty of Visual Arts, Strzemiński Academy of Art in Lodz (Poland), and is currently working on her PhD project under the Nature-Culture Programme of the Artes Liberales Faculty, University of Warsaw (Poland). While developing her artistic projects at biological laboratories, she also conducts ethnographic and autoethnographic observations, which help her explore the role of non-human actors, such as liminal beings, biofacts and transgenic organisms, in the production of contemporary culture. She shows her projects both at exhibitions (e.g. Pokusa nieśmiertelności/The Temptation of Immortality at the Copernicus Science Center in Warsaw; Uporczywe upodobanie/Pernicious Predilection at the Labyrinth Gallery in Lublin) and at conferences and festivals (e.g. Taboo, Transgresion, Transcendance in Art&Science [Greece, Mexico], FEMeeting [Portugal], and Foro de Estudias Visuales [Mexico]). 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. In 2016-2018, she collaborated with the education sections of  the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and the Zachęta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw.

    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.
