DECIPHERING RANDOMNESS

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The project poses fundamental questions concerning the working of human brain and randomness. Creativity and the search for original solutions, creative coding, building of new compositions, performances and prototypes, requires the extension of intellectual tools, including the replacement of simple generative techniques with probabilistic methods as well as with methods related with randomness. In order to deeply understand, develop and overcome algorithmic methods (including programs and devices), one needs to understand the notion of randomness and random generators.  The work analyses, among others, different probabilistic methods and pseudo-random generators, which are indispensable in numerous artistic applications as well as in other domains (music, performance, computer games, safety on the network). These methods should be developed and applied through building new prototypical devices and programs. The project discusses new creative techniques and artistic strategies: creation of prototypes, open source, open hardware, hacking, tactical media etc.

Robert B. Lisek

artist, Fundamental Research Lab
Robert B. LISEK is an artist and mathematician who focuses on systems and processes (computational, biological, social). He is involved in the number of projects focused on critical art strategies, creative coding and interactive art. Drawing upon post-conceptual art, software art and meta-media, his work intentionally defies categorization. Lisek is a pioneer of art based on machine learning and artificial inteligence. Lisek is also a composer... Read More →
