Aesthetics for the Algorithmic Art

How is the next generation of artists responding to the digital age‪? ‪The Centre for Innovation is hosting a special event during Border Sessions Festival: Aesthetics for the Algorithmic Art.

‪The Centre for Innovation invites Border Sessions to the Living Lab to talk about data visualizations as a form of artwork. Digital data has become a tool of expression and artistic expression has brought forward critical examination of the technology and its impact on society.


Artists look at themes such as surveillance and self-determination, and they are questioning art market concepts like authorship and intellectual property rights. They use video, software, websites, to hardware, kinetic machines, and robotics to express their message. Parametric design, algorithmic architecture alongside rapid prototyping technologies have redefined the relationship between creator and artist tools.


At this session, we will illustrate current developments with examples of recent bodies of work. With the audience we will discuss how theoretical approaches can contextualize the current emerging fields within contemporary art.

Joerg Blumtritt and Addie Wagenknecht
