Convergence Knowledge Seminar
Artists today seek the means of expression using high technology, and engineers get inspiration for new technologies from art. Historically, scientific principles have been applied to art, starting from Western painting. The creative fusion of the elements in science and art accelerated after the invention of photography in the late 19th century. Influenced by postmodernism in the early 20th century, photographic and contemporary art emphasizes subjectivity and uses various technologies and materials as its media of expression. Media art, which has recently become a global trend, is also a new art movement formed by combining scientific technology and art. This class studies the historical development of media art and science, focusing on the case studies on recent media artworks.
