…On 6th November 2014, if you are in or around London, you will be privy to a fantastic collision of human and machine creativity. The Creative Machine exhibition is free to attend and opens on that day. The curation of Creative Machine has been designed to explore “the twilight world of human/machine creativity in contemporary art, including installations of video and computer art, artificial intelligence, robotics and apps by twenty-five leading artists including well-known international artists, Goldsmiths (University of London) staff and students.”
Curated by Goldsmiths professors and artists William Latham, Atau Tanaka and Frederic Fol Leymarie, the exhibition will feature a wide variety of international artists such as Naoko Tosa and Yoichiro Kawaguchi (Japan) Jon McCormack (Australia), Cécile Babiole (France) Félix Luque Sanchez (Belgium), Quayola (Italy) alongside leading artists from Goldsmiths and 2014 Lumen Prize gold and bronze award winners, Andy Lomas and Patrick Tresset and leading digital artists Memo Akten and William Latham.
Mr. Latham, Professor of Computer Art at Goldsmiths said: “The vision for the Creative Machine Exhibition is to show exciting works by artists who use original software and advanced technology in the creation of their work, often blurring the roles of the artist and machine in the creative process. The aim is also to coincide the timing of this exhibition with the current wider growth of public interest in digital art stimulated by such events as The Barbican Digital Revolution Exhibition.”
Earlier in the day on November 6th, visitors can explore human-machine interaction and interplay with computer games, robotics and computer art at the Goldsmith’s Human Interactive Conference. This will be the first exhibition to open in the new main galleries of the recently refurbished St James Hatcham Church in New Cross….
