LASER TALKS Brussels – The Artwork As A Living System
with Christa Sommerer & Laurent Mignonneau and Dr. Elio Tuci
moderated by Alexandra Dementieva
Saturday 15 April 2023 at 7pm
The event is part of the exhibition "The Work as a Living System".
Doors open at 6:00 pm and artists will guide you through their work.
The intersection between biology, technology & art, and the use of biological systems and processes serve as a metaphor for the complex relationships between humans, nature and the digital world.
Christa Sommerer & Laurent Mignonneau are internationally acclaimed pioneers of interactive art. Since the early 90s, their immersive installations encourage us to explore and interact with natural environments and to participate in their simultaneous transformation in the digital space. Plants, water and lights become sensitive interfaces through which the public can create and connect with virtual environments.
Dr. Elio Tuci is a researcher in the field of artificial life, with a focus on using robotic and computational models to understand the behavior of biological systems. He has collaborated with artists on projects that explore the intersection of art, science, and technology.
