    Latest news | 30-03-2020
    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

Discourse around Homeopathy as a Social and Historiographic Myth | J. Jeszke

Texts | 24-11-2016
The phenomenon of homeopathy is one of the most important in the history of medicine. The doctrine and the linked therapeutic practice were developed in the time of the crisis which European medicine suffered at the turn of the 18th and the 19th centuries. With only minor changes in the theory and with almost no adjustment of the treatment procedure, homeopathy survived for two centuries and enjoyed wide acceptance from the patients and simultaneously strong controversies among the physicians. The invariability of homeopathy during such a long period makes it one of the most fascinating phenomena in European medical culture. The processes that took place in the 19th and 20th centuries changed not only the medicine but also the medical culture of Europe. It is important to remember that the changes were very dynamic. As an example we may refer to changes in the ideals of medical sciences, in biomedical paradigms, and standards of scientific rationale that have been taking place in medicine for the last 200 years. On the other hand, the changes were visible in perception of illness and all related visions of the world and of human beings. The social concept of health and illness has been changing equally dynamically and it was not always in line with the academic vision. Both the medical world and the areas of culture beyond its borders were transforming quite dramatically

    Adam Donovan

    He is an Australian artist working in the area of ​​science, art and technology. His work involves robotics, real time 3D environments, camera tracking and sound focusing technology.   Donovan's work has evolved from a fascination with the natural phenomena of light and sound. In pursuing an intense understanding of the physical characteristics of sound and how it moves through space, he has developed an ability to modulate and combine its patterns for us to hear. Essentially, Donovan uses lenses to manipulate, focus and sculpt sound. This fascination with first began using optical lenses to focus light. Understanding more about light as a physical phenomena turned his interests to sound, and how our auditory senses interpret our world.   adamdonovan.net

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.

    Tanja Visosevic

    An interdisciplinary artist, screen critic/theorist and educator.  Her art projects employ the technologies and strategies of the moving image, performance and bio-art to explore the cultural and philosophical terrains that consume her.  Much of her obsessions deal with the Life and Death Instincts, Identity Politics and the pioneering possibilities, as well as side effects, spawned from New Technologies.   The formation of a revolutionary audiovisual culture via digital technologies is embodied by much of Visosevic’s creative undertakings, present in her interactive mobile phone performances (such as Oh Bon! Commissioned by Fremantle Arts Centre in 2008 for the Bon Scott Project), through to Bio-Kino’s The Living Screen project (researched and developed at SymbioticA – The Centre of Excellence in Biological Arts).  These works possess an evolved poetics that situates her art practice within a swelling circuit of new genres and moving-image experiences.  Visosevic is a lecturer for the School of Communications and Arts at Edith Cowan University, where she combines her research in new media platforms with educating students in understanding the nature and experience of the moving image.
