Computational aesthetics is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence, concerned with the computational assessment of beauty in domains of human creative expression which bridges science and art. As an emerging and new interdisciplinary field, the seed of today’s Computational Aesthetics can be traced as far back as 1928, when American mathematician George David Birkhoff proposed the […]Read More Computational Aesthetics: the beholder needs eyes?
Although some people see AI as a simply tool that artists can use to augment and enhance their pieces, some other as me consider algorithms as a partner during the creative process. Artisans may have thought that there was no avenue for machines to take over their ethereal reins since something soulless and emotionless do […]Read More Artificial Intelligence: a revolution in the art world.
Interaction design -often abbreviated as IxD- is the practice of designing interactive digital products, environments, systems, and services in order to facilitate interactions between users and their artifacts. First of all let’s make a little distinction between some terms that may seem similar at first glance: UX, UI, IA and IxD… User Experience Design (UX) is […]Read More Interacting with artifacts through design.
“Natural science is concerned with the necessary, with how things are, whereas design is concerned with the contingent, with how things might be”, Herbert Simmon (1969). The field of User Experience Design (UXD) is a conceptual discipline focused on the interaction between human users, artifacts, and their contextual environments. So the main focus of this […]Read More Designing human cognitive experiences.
Human communication is unique for its extensive use of abstract language and development of our civilization has been closely linked with progress in telecommunication. Communication (from Latin communicare, meaning “to share”) is the act of conveying meanings from one entity or group to another through the use of mutually understood signs, symbols, and semiotic rules. Therefore the way that we humans […]Read More Evolution of human communication.
“Arts-based research” means that the investigator uses his own artistic expression as means of enquiry (“artistic knowing”) or as an action-oriented research that aims a “change through art”. This type of exploration carried out by artists, designers, curators, architects, writers and musicians contributes new concepts, methods and models in order to produce new and original […]Read More Machine Learning Art as Scientific Research.
Promoters of postgender politics think that bodies and personalities in a near future will no longer be constrained and circumscribed by gendered traits but enriched by liberty and self-expression. Internet culture has been a great catalyst for the diffusion of alternative visions of gender and sexual identities. But while today we find ourselves in perpetual […]Read More The revolution will be postgenderist…
