    LECTURE: Art and Science: Brain James Gimzewski, Laury Micha, Witold Libionka – When will robots be replaced by humanoids?

    Latest news | 17-08-2017
    2nd September 2017 (Saturday), 17:00 Łaźnia 1, ul. Jaskółcza 1, Gdańsk   Both artists and scientists are exploring the brain, trying to create its images, sculptures and installations of it or – on the other hand – AI’s 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 domains interpenetrate. According to this assumption we invite you to meet with representatives of different, though – as we shall see – complementary branches of knowledge about the brain: with prof. James Gimzewski, biochemist dealing with nanotechnologies, Micha Laura, artist fascinated by the brain and neural networks, and with dr. Witold Libionka, neurosurgeon.

    Masaki Fujihata, Augmenting the World

    Latest news | 26-04-2017
    19.05.2017 - 02.07.2017 Opening 19.05.2017, at 6 pm. Laznia 1, str. Jaskolcza 1, Gdansk   Counted among the pioneers of interactive art, Masaki Fujihata is one of the most celebrated, innovative and prominent artists who work with media technologies. Early in his career in the 1970s, he made animations, initially using an 8mm film and the stop motion technique. Later, he shifted to video to further investigate visual perception. The morphological explorations of perception that he undertook then revealed his meta-artistic concerns, which have ever since continued to resurface in a variety of forms. At that early stage, Fujihata’s projects addressed visualisation systems and techniques, the status of the image, the relations between technology and expression and new concepts of art emerging at the intersection of artistic practice, technology and science. In the following decade, Fujihata turned to computer art. Engaged in computer graphics a

    Latest news | 11-05-2017
    DIE AND BECOME! ART AND SCIENCE AS THE CONJECTURED POSSIBLE Edited by Dmitry Bulatov, in Polish / English, 204 pp. with 157 col. ill., Gdansk: Laznia CCA, 2017 ISBN978-83-61646-81-5   This publication is issued in conjunction with an exhibition and educational programme of the same title, which took place at the Łaźnia Centre for Contemporary Art in late 2016 and early 2017. Its fundamental objective is the presentation of artists’ and philosophers’ quest for the limits of means of expression, transgressing the “visible” and the “present”. Art here is seen as a holistic creative praxis, within which, alongside the utilization of the newest 21st century means – biomedicine, informational technologies and robotics – a significant number of “non-scientific” elements are represented: intuitions, metaphors and assumptions  When pondering over the scientific and technological possibilities of

Ryszard W. Kluszczyński   What do artists working with science and technology do? My recently published book Alien Agency: Experimental Encounters with Art in the Making (MIT Press, 2015) explores how “researcher-creators” produce new performative assemblages that challenge how we experience the world and create, and simultaneously, destabilize new phenomena and our perception of such phenomena. How do the materials of art – the “stuff of the world” – behave and perform in ways beyond the creator's intent, becoming unknown and alien. How is it that researcher creators organize the conditions for new kinds of

Interview with Roy Ascott | Aleksandra Hirszfeld

Texts | 19-11-2017
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
