Digital Futures: Lumen Big Reveal.

TL;DR: Digital Futures (Papadimitriou 2016) is a mobile and open platform for displaying and discussing work by researchers, artists, designers, companies and other professionals working with art, technology, design, science and beyond.
Abstract: Digital Futures (Papadimitriou 2016) is a mobile and open platform for displaying and discussing work by researchers, artists, designers, companies and other professionals working with art, technology, design, science and beyond. The programme started at the V&A in 2012 in order to enable collaboration and exchange, but also to create a flexible space to share artistic processes, academic research and engage with art, design, technology and contemporary issues. Bringing together people from different backgrounds and disciplines has been a central part to the programme. Digital Futures is not fixed to a place; instead, it is an open and mobile platform that changes continuously depending on participants, partners, themes and more, and exploring ideas from different perspectives.

TL;DR: A new book is planned to cover the interleaving of museums and digital culture with respect to a number of different aspects and viewpoints.
Abstract: The digital world is full of dubious and ephemeral material, much of it dubbed “fake news” by some people On the other hand, museums are institutions that have much worthwhile content and stories based around their collections The Internet and web have been and will continue to be a wonderful resource for outreach from museums into the world, without geographical boundaries Museums are now part of the digital culture of everyday life With this in mind, a new book (Giannini & Bowen 2019) is planned to cover the interleaving of museums and digital culture with respect to a number of different aspects and viewpoints

TL;DR: This one-day Symposium explored themes of personhood, modernity and digital art, bringing together speakers from a range of disciplines to consider technology, artistic practice and society.
Abstract: This one-day Symposium explored themes of personhood, modernity and digital art, bringing together speakers from a range of disciplines to consider technology, artistic practice and society. It seeks a renewed consideration of the role of art in illuminating human identity in a positive relation with technology, and its transformative effects upon space and time. The concerns for the role of art amidst the forces of a post-modern world are influenced by important legacies of the past, by which ideas about human identity and difference have been made meaningful in the relation of history and technology. In the frequently transient and conflicting forces of humanness and forces of modernity, the digital world of the arts emerges as a means by which new ideas of space and time can be considered, with new perspectives of human identity seen as states of being, towards the possibilities of experience, technology, individuality and society.

TL;DR: The genius of Turing is considered from various angles, both scientific and artistic, and position statements on how Turing has influenced and inspired their work are provided, as a starting point for a panel session and visual music performance.
Abstract: Alan Turing (1912–1954) is widely acknowledged as a genius. As well as codebreaking during World War II and taking a pioneering role in computer hardware design and software after the War, he also wrote three important foundational papers in the fields of theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence, and mathematical biology. He has been called the father of computer science, but he also admired by mathematicians, philosophers, and perhaps more surprisingly biologists, for his wide-ranging ideas. His influence stretches from scientific to cultural and even political impact. For all these reasons, he was a true polymath. This paper considers the genius of Turing from various angles, both scientific and artistic. The four authors provide position statements on how Turing has influenced and inspired their work, together with short biographies, as a starting point for a panel session and visual music performance.

TL;DR: This half-day Symposium explores themes of digital art, culture, and heritage, bringing together speakers from a range of disciplines to consider technology with respect to artistic and academic practice.
Abstract: This half-day Symposium explores themes of digital art, culture, and heritage, bringing together speakers from a range of disciplines to consider technology with respect to artistic and academic practice. As we increasingly see ourselves and life through a digital lens and the world communicated on digital screens, we experience altered states of being and consciousness in ways that blur the lines between digital and physical reality, while our ways of thinking and seeing become a digital stream of consciousness that flows between place and cyberspace. We have entered the postdigital world and are living, working, and thinking with machines as our computational culture driven by artificial intelligence and machine learning embeds itself in everyday life and threads across art, culture, and heritage, juxtaposing them in the digital profusion of human creativity on the Internet.
