An antidisciplinary approach to AI art.

According to architect Neri Oxman the antidisciplinary hypothesis states that knowledge can no longer be produced within disciplinary boundaries, but is entirely entangled. According to Joichi Ito, director of MIT Media Lab, by picking up where cybernetics left off and by redirecting the development of modern design and science to an antidisciplinary approach a new kind […]

14 useful UX design facts.

The field of User Experience Design (UXD) is a conceptual discipline focused on the interaction between human users, technology, and their contextual environments. The most imperative attribute that a UX designer can exude is the art of understanding people in general, and users in particular. Sounds relatively simple, right? Except that, it’s not. Every user […]

Computational Aesthetics: the beholder needs eyes?

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 […]

Why I’m a Communication Designer.

The way that we humans use symbols and signals to transmit information among each other in order to communicate is fundamentally different from the way that most animal species do it, specially if we take into account how we mediate this process through technology. According to Manuel Bohn, a researcher in Stanford University inspired by […]

Autonomous Artificial Artists.

The question of to what degree algorithms are tools, as opposed to active collaborators, is a very interesting debate in which the artists can contribute interesting reflections. Fanboys of Frankfurt School of critical theory may argue -in a clear romantic stance- that modern means of artistic production and reproduction like photography and video destroyed the […]

Antidisciplinary Attitude is the Way.

Architect and designer Neri Oxman proposes in her “Krebs Cycle of Creativity” a map for four domains of creative exploration—Science, Engineering, Design and Art—in an attempt to represent the antidisciplinary hypothesis: knowledge can no longer be produced within disciplinary boundaries, but is entirely entangled. Inspired by the philosophical work of designer John Maeda this circular […]
