2016-03-18Architectural Association lecture presenting Stelarc, Gustav Metzger, Lucy McRae, Oron Catts, Tony Prescott, Andrew Pickering, Bruce Gilchrist & Jo Joelson (London Fieldworks). We live in an age where science fiction has become fact. Our everyday is as radical as ever with change, latency and uncertainty being the new norm. The once comfortable and understood historical models of the past have proven limited in their capacity to engage and address the complexities of the contemporary condition. As we live in ever evolving information-rich environments, the question is how architecture and design in an expanded field of understanding can actively participate. From biotech, artificial intelligence, machine learning, autonomous infrastructures, material agency the symposium brings together leading figures from the arts / sciences / philosophy / cybernetics / design and architecture to engage in a playpen of conversation. The discussions moderated by AADRL Director Theodore Spyropoulos will examine the Future of Future in an ever present today.
