Where to Start? What is Crypto-Art?

Time: 11:00 - 11:25 AM PST 2:00 - 2:25 PM EST 8:00 - 8:25 PM CET

Format: Keynote Speaker (25 Min)

 

Speaker: Jason Bailey

 

“Cryptoart are rare digital artworks, sometimes described as digital trading cards or “rares,” associated with unique and provably rare tokens that exist on the blockchain. The concept is based on the idea of digital scarcity, which allows you to buy, sell, and trade digital goods as if they were physical goods”

 

As an early collector of rare digital art, Jason Bailey walks us through the evolution of art on the blockchain. This talk looks at the basics for new artists entering the space, including how to get started.

Artist Presentation

Format: PechaKucha (10 Min)

 

Speaker: Kristin McIver

 

Kristin McIver presents 10 artworks that utilize data and algorithms to create artificial narratives and blur the lines between digital and physical worlds. In a digital society governed by algorithms, information on social networks becomes the primary source from which the participants of digital culture base their knowledge, identity, ideals, and social and political allegiances. However, these algorithmic filters are susceptible to manipulation, polarizing opinions rather than uniting them. Our collective perception of the world becomes a slippery slope of non-truths and disparate realities.

From Generative Photography to Darktaxa

Time: 10:00 - 10:35 AM PST 1:00 - 1:35 PM EST 7:00 - 7:35 PM CET

Format: Panel Discussion (35 Min)

 

Speakers: Michael Reisch, Anna Ridler, Stefan Gronert

Moderator: Marco de Mutiis

 

The evolution of photography as a medium was inherently driven by technology. This panel discusses the current state of photography and its development from the generative photography movement in the 1960s to digital photography and post-photography of our time. Some recent technological developments, such as GAN, photogrammetry, and augmented reality, are shaping our visual perception and challenging the original definition of photography. We are encountering a new era in which capturing the physical and virtual world is processed through a blackbox of algorithms. With the Darktaxa Project, a group of artists has started to build a vocabulary of new techniques related to photography and is leading a discourse on a proto status of image processing that is yet to be defined.

This round table gets to the heart of some of the biggest philosophical questions surrounding the collection of unique tokenized assets.

 

 

 

Blockchain Artist Research

Time: 2:30 - 3:15 PM PST 5:30 - 6:15 PM EST 11:30 - 12:15 PM CET

Format: Research Presentation (30 Min)

 

Speakers: Jesse McKee

 

 

It feels like we have shackled ourselves to living our lives in the 20th century-on-life-support. It is time to renew our cultural practices and relations in order to prevent the unwanted future that was designed for us far too long ago. Over the course of three years, 221A (221a.ca), a Vancouver-based nonprofit, leads a research initiative entitled Blockchains & Cultural Padlocks that is nurturing new and experimental forms of cultural, social and ecological infrastructure that can be designed on the blockchain, with the intention to "recommon" land, data, and objects. The Arts, Design, and the Humanities have a crucial role to play in deeply adapting our culture towards something that is more cognizant and reactive to the major historical narratives we are navigating today: climate collapse, context collapse, decolonization, economic justice, and the equitable redistribution of resources.

Some of the biggest names in traditional art discuss their experiences with the tokenized art space, and share their vision for the future of this radical movement.

 

 

 

 

From Dartmouth to Singularity – Evolution of AI

Time: 10:00 - 10:35 AM PST 1:00 - 1:35 PM EST 7:00 - 7:35 PM CET

Format: Panel Discussion (35 Min)

 

Speakers: Christiane Paul, Douglas Dodds, Margit Rosen, Lynn Hershman

Moderator: Georg Bak

 

The term AI (artificial intelligence) first appeared at the Dartmouth conference in 1956 and was subsequently picked up by artists and creative engineers as an artistic method for making art. In those days, artists were using early computers, punch cards, and plotters. There were no screens, graphic programs, or possibilities to store files. This panel explores the history and relevance of AI in art, spotlighting the early beginnings of computer art in the 1960s and some of the pivotal exhibitions such as “Cybernetic Serendipity” at ICA and the New Tendencies movement in Zagreb. This discussion also looks at the present and future where Moore’s Law is predicting posthuman and transhuman scenarios.

 

 

 

 

Voxel Bridge to Smart Cities and Public Art

Time: 11:00 - 11:25 AM PST 2:00 - 2:25 PM EST 8:00 - 8:25 PM CET

Format: Keynote Speaker (25 Min)

 

Speaker: Cynthia Gayton

 

Using Jessica Angel’s installation project, Voxel Bridge, as a base, Cynthia Gayton talks about ways that art democratization may be realized as a blockchain model that could be used in many environments, but in particular, those environments called “smart cities.”

Smart cities, where technology is introduced into urban environments to solve commercial and economic problems, present risks, such as privacy and data breaches, rights violations, intellectual property infringement, data manipulation, etc.

However, an art installation may be a pilot blockchain project to strip away some concerns by planning for those risks and mitigating them. Privacy concerns can be limited with anonymous avatars. Data manipulation attempts can be “seen” on a blockchain. Similarly, financial transactions can be tracked. Rights attributed to tokens can be captured, inherited, or sold. Community financial well-being can be encouraged with community ownership of public art as well as community artistic contributions that can be financially rewarded. It can also test different economic relationship forms, for example, creating a community bond token vehicle to which people living in the community are given preferential equity interest in the community bond.

Public art installations like this may open up opportunities for curious community participation.

Speaker: Nerd_funk

 

The emerging reality of Instagram Nerd_funk, a modular, pluridisciplinary project centred on an immersive VR experience dealing with five major contemporary themes, is a collaboration between VR artist and developer Ali Eslami and visual and video artist Mamali Shafahi. They are both members of the first post-internet, social media generation, and share a fascination for the way in which new digital tools, and social media as an ephemeral phenomenon, influence today's digital culture and visual expressions. Approaching Instagram as an archive in 2018, they began to capture the Instagram Stories of over 600 people whose posts might be described as avant-garde, reflecting a distinctive new aesthetic. This archive of moving images, which continues to grow, forms the basis for Nerd_funk as a whole and feeds into the VR installation and experience, lecture performances, print publications, and so on. In this presentation, the artists explain how Instagram became their source of inspiration, and outline their process in the creation of nerd_funk.

 

 

 

 

On Artificial Intelligence

Time: 12:00 - 1:00 PM PST 3:00 - 4:00 PM EST 9:00 - 10:00 PM CET

Format: Panel Discussion (35 Min)

 

 

Speakers: Micaela Mantegna and Karoline Truchon

Moderator: Valentine Goddard

 

This discussion is a deeper dive into issues raised by Valentine Goddard’s earlier presentation exploring concrete systemic strategies, policy and action recommendations that can ensure that the benefits of AI are a collective good that benefits all citizens. History has taught us that collaboration among various stakeholders is fundamental in shaping who benefits the most from new technologies and what strategies are useful in shaping the impact of AI on society. The discussion will focus on two key elements: reclaiming the narratives about AI, and why intellectual property strategies are an urgent matter. It is happening: AI applied for patent ownerships and another AI has sued a governmental office for imposing that a human be named as the inventor. What is the arts, cultural, and creative sectors’ response to the proposed changes in IP regulation to adapt to AI? Can AI be recognized as an inventor? Can it be granted authorship, own patents? What is the impact on artists and cultural workers’ livelihoods in the age of Digital Economy?
