Come join us on Thursday September 7th at 6pm for the private view of Overlap, the degree show for the Goldsmiths MFA/MA Computational Arts programme, with live performances, free drinks, and cutting-edge work from a new generation of computational artists.
Within the fields of Human-Computer Interaction and Human-Robot Interaction, the past few years have witnessed a strong upsurge of interest in the more personal aspects of human relationships with these artificial partners. The International Congress on Love and Sex with Robots provides an excellent opportunity for academics and industry professionals to present and discuss their innovative work and ideas in an academic symposium.
We would like to invite submissions for a wide variety of practice focused work for the 4th International Conference on Movement and Computing (MOCO) which is to be held in London. MOCO is an interdisciplinary conference that explores the use of computational technology to support and understand human movement practice (e.g. computational analysis) as well as movement as a means of interacting with computers (e.g. motion capture, gestural analysis, sensor interfaces).

A team from the University of Tokyo will present the work of Cyberforest, a unique trans-disciplinary research programme which has been streaming and archiving live sounds, video and other data from the University of Tokyo Forests since 1995. London-based artist collective SoundCamp will curate two panels bringing together artists, academics and naturalists to place this pioneering work in the context of related practices in the UK and beyond. This sharing of ideas and experiences will be the basis for further exchanges and collaborations.
Metasis is Goldsmiths 2016 MA/MFA Computational Arts degree show. It is the result of a year of intense study, equally focused on technical and critical aspects of computational arts. The works on show illustrate the versatility of computational applications when introduced to fine art. They demonstrate interactive, generative and procedural techniques, ranging from critiquing the autonomy of the system to the role of the artist.
Vinoba is an R&D Engineer for the BBC, working within the Broadcast & Connected Systems team. She thinks up new types of synchronised companion screen experiences for connected homes. Currently, this ranges from building prototypes for new & archived content to running exploratory studies to gauge how our audiences might react to them.
If you have a PC, tablet, or smartphone, you have used a computer. But some people use billard balls, beams of light, sticks of wood, chemicals, bacteria, slime moulds, spaghetti, even black holes, as computers (although some of these only in theory). How can these things be computers? What can we do? Can they do things your smartphone can’t? And why are these people using such peculiar things to compute with, anyway?
Sean Cubitt questions the vulnerability of media archives and henceforth our obligation to them. He analyzes the values of media archives today, and what the structure of these values can tell us about the nature of ethical and political obligation in the 21st century.
