Open Call | AISB-Event: Creativity Meets Economy at University of Swansea, Wales

Application deadline: 5 August 2019.

If a computer makes an artwork will we be able to tell the difference? Will anyone care? Recent sales at Christies would have us think so. Does art need to be made by a human to matter? Is creativity a social activity or is a machine capable of it unassisted? Is the imitation game an essential part of all creative processes or is creativity solely the domain of humans?

This inaugural exhibition looking at the relationship of creativity to technology, will take place at the University of Swansea. Artists working with robotics, machine systems and conversational interfaces will interrogate, and be interrogated on the relationship between artist and machine and life as a creative entity.
The exhibition will take place 12–15 September 2019 in the Research Crucible of the Computational Foundry on Swansea University’s Bay Campus.

Roundtable discussion on the phenomenology of creativity.
Commentary by artists/creatives/technologists on the act of creativity.
