A number of approaches try to use the dynamics of physical, biological and chemical systems as computers. The talk will present some contemporary strategies and discuss the difficulties to clearly classify these as purely analog or digital computers.
Biological Machines and the Materiality of Computation
University of Bergen, Norway, 26.-27. January 2012
Workshop: Synthetic Biology, views from the future(s)
Organisation: Dorothy Dankel, Ana Delgado, Silvio Funtowicz, Roger Strand.
On the occasion of the exhibition IRRATIONAL COMPUTING by Lab3 alumnus Ralf Baecker, Prof. Dr. Georg Trogemann is giving a talk on “Code and Material – Algorithms in Art” at Schering Stiftung, Berlin. The talk focuses on artistic inquiries into the interrelation of hard- and software, material and code.
The fourth Symposium on Digital Art at Kunsthalle Bremen asks for the specificities of the digital image and its documentation. It is organized by Frieder Nake and compArt and focuses on early algorithmic art and the relation of image and algorithm as one of sign and signal. › Georg Trogemann participates with a talk about “the machine’s calculated grasp for art”.
