Visual Complexity, Bellissimi Sistemi Complessi

Ormai  sotto gli occhi di tutti, anche dei pi conservatori tra noi. La technologicizzazione del nostro mondo, cos" come lo abbiamo conosciuto fino a qualche anno fa,  un processo ormai in atto e sicuramente irrefrenabile. Ha preso il via, dopo qualche anno di quiescenza, soprattutto nelle abitudini e nelle attitudini della maggior parte di noi e di tutti quelli che hanno qualche anno in meno di noi... READ MORE...

Furtherfield.org: Coding Cultures – Part 1

L'idea di un articolo su Furtherfield.org mi stuzzicava da tempo, ma come scriverlo in maniera completa senza riuscire a fare due chiacchiere con Marc (Garret) e Ruth (Catlow), suoi principali rappresentanti e promotori? Confrontandomi proprio con loro  nata quindi l'idea di questo speciale: due puntate, questa prima in cui Marc e Ruth pubblicano un loro testo ideologico che mi sono preoccupato di tradurre e interpretare al meglio, e una successiva seconda in cui risponderanno alla mia lunga intervista....

Scanner: Intellectual Electronica

Since his debut, Scanner has been an unclassifiable artist inside of the crammed panorama of electronic creativity. Actually Robin Rimbaud is well-known in the world of electro-music, appreciated by his own spiritual father, Karlheinz Stockhausen, but he always moves in the fertile ground of contamination of new technologies and of those potentialities offered by the means of electronic expression and integrated media....

Lab (au): Meta Design. Liquid Spaces And The Cities Of Tomorrow

Such people are not inclined to complaining about new telecameras controlling the access to the old town centre, about the prevailing traffic and polluted air, or the advertising billboards covering the facades of the old buildings in boulevards....

Todaysart 2007, The Hague International Art

The Hague , The Netherlands, is a little city with no more than 1million inhabitants and 1hour and half from Amsterdam . A grey sky as scheduled, avant-garde buildings, cycle facilities and the hundred-year-old Royal Art Academy . This Academy pays attention to anything artistic or modern. The weekend of 21 st - 22 nd September was dedicated to the Todaysart Festival.

Struttura Organica 2007, Computing Nature

When we, in some years, will have stiffness, and maybe time, to watch behind with the right critical spirit and with knowledge instruments more and more mature and shared, I'm sure that one of the most strong thematic will be the possible relation between technology, nature and art in this systematic order. Struttura Organica 2007, video art and net art festival from 7 th to 9 th September in San Vincenzo - Livorno, is maybe the first Italian exhibition that turns the attention to these themes, through the well-known formula of festival, meetings, art works and live performance....

Software Art Space. Software Art ?!?

You can bet on it. As soon as the news gets around through reference mailing-lists, word of mouth, international festivals, interviews by the most acclaimed critic or curator of the moment, infinite will be the praises raised to Software Art Space ( www.softwareartspace.com ), the second operation performed by Steven Sacks, founder of the phantomatic Bitforms gallery: digital in conception, but with a physical (micro) headquarter in New York. In that same city and neighborhood, Chelsea, in which an apparently infinite army of galleries and exhibition spaces devoted to contemporary arts seem to be struggling to be part of the quadrangle between 4th and 5th streets, determining the destinies of the international art market....

Sonar 2007, A Chat…to The Rhythm Of Music

Digicult had the honor of establishing a partnership with the 2007 edition of Sonar, objectively the most widely known and populated advanced music and multimedia arts festival. The project has been carefully executed and many were the difficulties encountered by our small team, but we did it, and we can now proudly present you this double summer issue of the magazine filled with a report that is so complete and exhaustive that it can easily clear any doubts you might have left in your mind about the efefctive possibilities offered by editorial projects on the web, on both their viral capabilities and their structural dinamism....
