Big Data applied to Intermedia Art : Pierre Jolivet / Pacific 231
TOG Hackerspace and Exchange Dublin are proud to host a talk by French artist / composer Pierre Jolivet on Big Data and Intermedia Art. The event forms part of a week long series of events and a gallery show celebrating our 5th birthday.
“Big Data and complex visualisations are now ever present as a means of representation and semiotic simplification. Artists, with the development of specific languages like Processing, are starting to generate a new revolution where creativity transcends data. This short presentation is an attempt to expose the potential of tapping in our environment and / or our inner self – revealing a new form of Intermedia Art*.”
Date: Friday 24th January – 8pm
Where: Exchange Dublin
Tickets: No booking required, free entry.
* Intermedia was a concept employed in the mid-sixties by Fluxus artist Dick Higgins to describe the often confusing, inter-disciplinary activities that occur between genres that became prevalent in the 1960s. Thus, the areas such as those between drawing and poetry, or between painting and theatre could be described as intermedia. [Wikipedia]
