AREAS OF CONFLU(X)ENCE
International conference on Art, Space & Technology in the Digital Age
 
4-6 octombrie / Astra Studio, Piaţa Huet nr.2, Sibiu
un eveniment organizat de Asociatia 2580 si Asociatia Arscenic (Paris, Franta)

Areas of conflu(x)ence propune o dezbatere internationala despre relatia dintre arta si tehnologie in era digitala, concentrandu-se asupra impactului mediei in viata noastra.
Ce tip de modele folosim in observarea si intelegerea noului mediu? Daca instrumentele pe care le folosim au un efect asupra modului in care interactionam cu mediul inconjurator, cum le putem folosi potentialul? Ce capcane sunt de evitat? Ce asteptam de la tehnologie? Incercand sa raspunda la toate aceste intrebari, conferinta intentioneaza sa identifice conditia actuala a vietii ghidate de informatie  si factorii care o influenteaza.

Ca parte a conferintei vor fi proiectate tezele Buffalo ale  lui Woody Vasulka

Steina (1940, Islanda) si Woody (1937, Cehoslovacia) Vasulka
Sotii Vasulka s-au intalnit in Praga la inceputul anilor 1960, s-au casatorit si s-au mutat la New York in 1965. Acolo Steina a lucrat ca muzician independent si Woody ca editor de filme multiscreen, facand experimente cu sunete electronice, lumini stroboscopice, iar in 1969 cu video. In 1971, a format impreuna cu Andreas Mannik “The Kitchen”, teatru de arte media.
Cercetarea sotilor Vasulka in domeniu proceselor analoage si digitale, si dezvoltarea de instrumente vizuale electronice, initiata la inceputul  anilor 1970, i-a pozitionat printre primii arhitecti ai unui vocabular electronic expresiv al crearii de imagini. Ei au monitorizat, formula evolutiva a unei sintaxe a imaginilor electronice, in timp ce articulau un dialog procesual intre arta si tehnologie.
 

ENGLISH VERSION

Areas of conflu(x)ence proposes an international debate on the relationship between art and technology in the present digital era, focusing on the impact of the new media in our lives.
What kind of models are we using in perceiving and understanding our new environment? If the tools we use have an influence on the way we deal with our environment, how do we use their potentiality? What traps are to be avoided? What do we expect from technology? By trying to answer all these questions, the conference intends to identify the present condition of our data driven lives and the factors that influence it.

In the frame of the conference are going to be projected Woody Vasulka’s Buffalo lectures.

Steina (1940, Islanda) and Woody (1937, Cehoslovacia) Vasulka 
The Vasulkas met in Prague in the early 1960’s, married, and moved to New York City in 1965. There, Steina worked as a freelance musician and Woody as a multiscreen film editor, experimenting with electronic sounds, stroboscopic lights, and, by 1969, with video. In 1971, together with Andreas Mannik, they founded The Kitchen, a media arts theater.
The Vasulkas’ investigations into analog and digital processes and their development of electronic imaging tools, which began in the early 1970s, place them among the primary architects of an expressive electronic vocabulary of image-making. They charted the evolving formulation of a syntax of electronic imaging as they articulate a processual dialogue between artist and technology.
