Computational methods for the creation and interpretation of digital Data is an established activity among researchers in all fields of scholarship. Huge amounts of information collected from multiple digital resources are used and combined by scientists, helping them to approach their research questions from interesting angles and innovative perspectives. But the fact is that digital Data is moving beyond research practices to become an inspirational motif in other areas, as it is the case of contemporary artistic expression. Artists are integrating digital Data into their work, helping to translate large amounts of information into meaningful content to their audiences.
Our next Digital Conversations event will bring artists and researchers together in order to discuss how digital Data is is defining the new aesthetic expression of our age.
Speakers: Prof. Anthony Lilley (CEO Magic Lantern), Prof. Ernest Edmonds (De Montfort University, University of Technology, Sydney), Michael Takeo (visual artist and researcher), Julie Freeman (Art Associate at the Open Data Institute and Independent artist) and Dr. Kevin Walker (Royal College of Art).
