Subtle Cybernetics and the Art of Mind
CONSCIOUSNESS REFRAMED art and consciousness in the post-biological era. 2017
How far have we come in exploring consciousness: in what ways is our curiosity reflected in our art? Have our digital systems learned to feel? Does the computer exhibit emotional intelligence? Whilst science fails to provide any understanding of how consciousness arises, or where it is located, the artist seeks every way to navigate Mind, and explore its domains. In the process, our digital technology may come to call for the enhancement of chemistry. Can we expect robots to access new forms of thought and awareness? Will the scenarios of Artificial Reality elicit new mental states, and evince new qualities of being? As we increasingly recognise how intelligence pervades every aspect of nature, can we empower architecture to access the field of consciousness: can we grow buildings that think, feel and communicate? Can we design the temperament of products?
