In terms of sense terminology, it is possible to make use of Digital Technology to expand and modify the perception of humans' environment. The approach to design Cybernetic Extensions to expand the senses of the Human Body is being analyzed throughout this article. Under the debates on the dialectical interaction between technology-body, species-environment, creation-biocreation and human-bonding, the concept of Prosthesis presented by Tomás Maldonado is proposed as the starting point for the Cybernetic Organs design. It is predicted that these Smart Prosthesis will be designed by using 3D printers, and the patient's own cells, which will be created in Fab Labs laboratories. It will go from designing objects to designing the Human Body as an object.
This paper presents the continuation of our interdisciplinary work connecting art and technology at Purdue University (USA) and Universidad de Antioquia (Colombia). In particular, this presentation will retrospectively analyze the research, methodology and outcomes of the course experience “Open Studio / Estudio abierto:
Interactive art and 3D animation”, during 2014 and 2015.
We will also evaluate the course in order to provide improvement
The present work looks into the specificity of the artist's palette with new media, focusing the analysis on the association between bits and atoms within the artistic field. The concepts of materiality, immateriality and neomateriality are examined to describe the particular features assumed by the tangible/intangible dichotomy in Art with New Media. Through the analysis of a corpus of works, we present a set of possibilities, issues and questions from our times, examined in context under the light of artistic movements from the 20th century like Conceptual Art and Pop Art.
Finally, we explore the role of computer code—and the datum—in the expansion of the expressive palette.
