Some days ago, in an almost general media silence, Pietro Fogliati, a great Italian artist and pioneer in art-science experimentation, died at 86.
Since the early Sixties he has been working on the user's perception, anticipating some of the topic of interactive and contextual art, making the user as an artwork's co-author. Light, color, sound, electrical and mechanical devices, are his artworks' main tools, he used in very poetical way.

Il Fine del Mondo
Nicola D'Ugo, scrittore e critico letterario
Giuliano Ladolfi, editore
Il fine dell'esistenza che le umane rappresentazioni modellano è il conseguimento della coscienza di specie, con i relativi benefici che ne deriverebbero alla vita, ovvero l'estinzione? L'Apocalisse è in atto oppure si è già compiuta? Può essere ancora scongiurata? Il lettore potrà leggere il romanzo come un'analisi dell'inconscio soggiacente ai moventi imperialistici da cui è caratterizzata l'attuale epoca di sfruttamento dell'uomo sull'uomo e di questi sulla natura, ma anche in molti altri modi che lo avvicinino alla cognizione di un mondo infine abitabile.

From the eighties she became interested and moving progressively towards the digital image. Since 2000 she is conducting research in the field of experimental film, based on two axes: the moving image - the aesthetics of representation of movement, and the formalization of thematic and scientific concepts. She made a few experimental animation combining these two research areas: Web, TIME, LIQST_liquid state, and Landscape, which were programmed and awarded in international festivals devoted to avant-garde cinema, animation and video-arts. She is also involved in international conferences where she presents these movies or articles about the image and its contemporary transformations. Living in Paris since 2010, she continued her artistic research and technology by working with experimental software in the generation of images -still images or moving image

Simon BIGGS featured by the ARCHIVE of DIGITAL ART
Simon Biggs' artistic interest in electronic and digital media goes back to the 1970s. Since then, he has evolved into one of the leading artists of the field by working as scholar, writer and curator who explores a multitude of subjects within Digital Art including digital poetics, interactive and performative environments and posthumanity. Biggs' art works have been exhibited across the world (including Tate Modern, Centre George Pompidou, Walker Art Center, Akademie der Kuenste Berlin), and he has held keynotes at conferences worldwide (including ISEA 2015 and ICA 2008). He was principal investigator of the HERA-funded research project ELMCIP, which developed an open.access, contributory database for electronic literature. Publications include "Remediating the Social"(2012) and "Autopoeisis" (with James Leach, 2004).
Biggs' earliest works in the genre of Digital Graphics consisted of minimalistic real-time computer animations constructed algorithmically. Today, his research topics range from augmented reality and performance environments, to electronic writing and data analysis. Biggs focuses on the influence of digitisation on our bodily perception between artificial intelligence, phenomenology and semiotics, through his works giving insight into the production and reception of meaning within a socio-technical system. The manifold expressions of his art vary from digitally mediated performance installations to computer programmes. For instance, "The Great Wall of China" (1996) is a real-time interactive language machine, which was shown in a website, a CD-ROM and an interactive installation. Through object-oriented and behavioural programming techniques based on a basic grammar system, text emerges from the formation of the language itself as something simultaneously written and read. Continuing such an investigation, in "Dark Matter" (2016) multiple participants interact with textual fragments, and infer from the physical and cultural information around these texts questions of "collective unconscious" within individual knowledge and identity.
Sean CUBITT: Unlike the familiar human-computer interface, Biggs opens up the body to the experience of the digital: moves the corporeal from the stasis of cinema (and the railway carriage) to the movement of architecture, ghosting in the secular the Gothic's divine architecture of light, but preserving the escape from destiny so long fought for and so weakly held.
Wolf LIESER: As one of the first artists ever, Simon Biggs has not only made his net art works available online, but pioneered in publishing a CD-ROM with interactive software art in 2000, which sold out immediately.

ADA: THOUSANDS OF ARTWORKS
Since its foundation in 1999, the ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART (former Database of Virtual Art) has grown to be the most important online archive for digital art. In cooperation with established media artists, researchers and institutions it has been documenting the rapidly evolving world of digital art and its related fields for more than a decade and contains today a selection of thousands of artworks at the intersection of art, science and technology. ARTISTS and SCHOLARS are invited to join the community and set up their own archive pages.
COLLABORATIVE ARCHIVING OF DIGITAL ART
The large assortment of information on Jeffrey SHAW and hundreds of other leading artists and their artworks were carried out by the artists themselves in assistance with members of the ADA community. The new ADA web tool allows members to archive artist statements, works descriptions, literature, information on exhibitions, high resolution images, blueprints, videos etc. Artists and scholars are invited to contribute actively to the archive and to work collaboratively on the documentation and analysis of digital art.
EXPANDED DOCUMENTATION FOR THE NEEDS OF DIGITAL ART
Due to the processual, ephemeral, interactive, technology-based and fundamentally context-dependent character of digital art, it is at risk for becoming extinct without an adequate documentation. Therefore, the ADA is based on an expanded concept of documentation, which takes account of the specific conditions of digital art.

La parola del dissenso
Ricordando GIANMARIO LUCINI
Venerdì 29 aprile 2016 alle 17.00
Palazzo Medici Riccardi
Via Camillo Cavour 3 - Firenze
parleranno di Gianmario Lucini e della sua opera
e leggeranno le sue poesie
Marcella Corsi, Anna Maria Curci e Luca Benassi
Introduce e coordina
La notte fra il 27 e il 28 ottobre 2014 moriva Gianmario Lucini, un bravo e stimato poeta, un editore, un infaticabile organizzatore culturale, un critico, un pensatore, un raffinato uomo di cultura attento alle vicende politiche e sociali del suo tempo che non mancava di sottoporre al vaglio della riflessione critica. Lucini era, insomma, un umanista, uno di quei personaggi che per vastità di indagini, ampiezza di studi e chiarezza di scrittura si sarebbe incontrato alla fine del Quattrocento, e che oggi è razza inesistente o ridotta al silenzio.
La poesia era per Gianmario non solo strumento per perseguire le ragioni del cuore, era anche verità, e si esprimeva come testimonianza, impegno, proposta. L'evento di questa sera vuole essere un'occasione per ricordare e far conoscere il complesso dell'opera di Gianmario Lucini, e darà l'opportunità per dare spazio anche alle ultime due antologie poetiche su temi di attualità prodotte dalla casa editrice da lui diretta (Cronache da Rapa Nui, su temi ecologici, e Keffyeh. Intelligenze per la pace), entrambe ben fruibili anche a scopi didattici. Molti dei suoi libri ‒ tra essi A futura memoria, Krisis, Monologo del dittatore, Sapienziali, Canto dei bambini perduti, Memorie del sottobosco, Hybris, Vilipendio, Pensiero poetico e critica integrale dell'arte ‒ e diverse delle antologie su temi di attualità saranno consultabili e acquistabili in sala.
Open Call - Residency at the ESA and at the Ars Electronica Futurelab
This is the fourth residency conducted under the aegis of the European Digital Art and Science Network for which Ars Electronica cordially invites artists to apply. It's an extraordinary opportunity to spend a scientifically inspired stay at one of the world's foremost research institutions, the European Space Agency (ESA). Artists will get an up-close-and-personal look at Europe's space program or experience two historic events live on site: the landing of the Rosetta space probe and the Exo Mars mission.
Art & Science Open Call
ESA and Ars Electronica Futurelab
The initial phase of the residency consists of a 2-6-week stay at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, The Netherlands. In the application submitted, the artist must explain why he/she is interested in the specific themes of the ESA's space travel program or in the landings of the Rosetta and/or Exo Mars 2016 spacecrafts.
Phase 2 of the residency is a one-month stay at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, where the facility's staff and mentors will support the artist as he/she goes about creating and developing new works that were inspired by the residency. The Ars Electronica Futurelab's focus is, as always, on the future at the nexus of art, technology and society.
Beginning today, April 20, 2016, artists can submit an application for this ESA Residency online at http://cdn.mlwrx.com/sys/r.aspx?sub=lPneI_MVg2s&link=67TH. The deadline is June 6, 2016 (23:59 CEST/GTM+2). Every submission must include a brief presentation video in which the applicant introduces himself/herself, describes how the residency would be inspirational for the applicant's artistic work, and elaborates on the proposed artistic project. Furthermore, the application must provide a cost estimate as well as links to online material depicting and elaborating on selected works previously done by the artist.
Presentation at the Ars Electronica Festival, at the ESA and in modular traveling exhibitions
The works created by the artists-in-residence will be showcased at the Ars Electronica Festival 2016/2017 and in modular traveling exhibitions running at the European Digital Art and Science Network's seven partner institutions: (Center for the Promotion of Science < http://cdn.mlwrx.com/sys/r.aspx?sub=lPneI_MVg2s&link=67TL > /Serbia, DIG Gallery < http://cdn.mlwrx.com/sys/r.aspx?sub=lPneI_MVg2s&link=67TN > /Slovakia, Zaragoza City of Knowledge Foundation < http://cdn.mlwrx.com/sys/r.aspx?sub=lPneI_MVg2s&link=67TO > /Spain, Kapelica Gallery < http://cdn.mlwrx.com/sys/r.aspx?sub=lPneI_MVg2s&link=67TP > /Slovenia, GV Art < http://cdn.mlwrx.com/sys/r.aspx?sub=lPneI_MVg2s&link=67TQ > /UK, LABoral < http://cdn.mlwrx.com/sys/r.aspx?sub=lPneI_MVg2s&link=67TR > /Spain, Science Gallery < http://cdn.mlwrx.com/sys/r.aspx?sub=lPneI_MVg2s&link=67TT > /Ireland).

RADICAL ATOMS and the alchemists of our time
"RADICAL ATOMS - and the alchemists of our time" is the theme of the next Ars Electronica Festival September 8-12, 2016. Hundreds of artists, scientists and engineers from all over the world will be convening for speeches, panel discussions, projects and prototypes, workshops, performances, interventions and concerts staged over five days at multiple locations in downtown Linz.
While cultural and social turbulence in the wake of the Digital Revolution still confronts us with substantial challenges, a new generation of creative scientists and engineers has long since gone a step further. They have joined forces with artists and designers and are amalgamating the virtual world of data with the physical world of our bodies. They're using bits and atoms to fabricate substances and materials with completely new characteristics. Due to these creators' unorthodox methods and, in many instances, fantastic visions, they're arousing an uproar that's comparable to the response that greeted the alchemists of bygone days and their mysterious experiments.
The 2016 Ars Electronica Festival will spotlight this phenomenon and do so together with some world-renowned associates. Serving as scientific advisor to this year's theme symposium is Hiroshi Ishii of MIT Media Lab in Boston, and the theme exhibition is being curated jointly by MIT and the Ars Electronica Futurelab. The 2016 Festival Campus will feature Peking's Tsinghua University, considered one of China's best institutes of technology and the natural sciences, and a member of the C9 League, an association of the country's nine most prestigious universities.
Initial details about the festival and a statement by the festival curators is already online at www.aec.at/radicalatoms. < http://cdn.mlwrx.com/sys/r.aspx?sub=lDcdi_4as2Dr&link=6440 >

FUTURS NON-CONFORMES — [NONCOMPLIANT FUTURES]
ONLINE EXHIBITION - APRIL — OCTOBER 2016
WITH NICK BOSTROM, BUREAU D'ÉTUDES & EWEN CHARDRONNET, STEPHANE DEGOUTIN & GWENOLA WAGON, DISNOVATION RESEARCH GROUP, LAUREN HURET, MANU LUKSCH, GIORGIA LUPI, PETER MOOSGAARD, ERNESTO OROZA, JULIEN PRÉVIEUX

EXHIBITION LAUNCH — APRIL 12, 2016, 7PM
JEU DE PAUME, PARIS
WITH EWEN CHARDRONNET, MANU LUKSCH, PETER MOOSGAARD & NICOLAS MAIGRET
NONCOMPLIANT FUTURES ventures the hypothesis that a form of 'propaganda of innovation' exists and that this propaganda has become, in turn, the focal point for a series of artistic counterstrategies which are critical, experimental and speculative in nature.
Following on from the apology of progress that has existed since the Renaissance, today's vocabulary of innovation is a rhetorical tool par excellence. It inundates dominant discourse, spreading from the field of politics into the sectors of work, education and art. This phenomenon has played a key role in establishing the techno-sciences as the default belief system, making the consumption/innovation duality the global economy's principal driving force and acting to perpetuate the myth of infinite economic growth.
However at the heart of the prevailing techno-positivist context, numerous critical, alternative, deviant and speculative artistic practices are emerging. NONCOMPLIANT FUTURES brings together a selection of artists, theorists and activists who question and challenge the discourse of innovation and utopian technological solutionism. This online exhibition is organised into three six-month cycles and it will question, in a variety of different ways, how we imagine and have imagined the future (dated, near and distant). It attempts to highlight cross-disciplinary trajectories and multiple strategies in order to expose the cult of innovation and to disrupt or even corrupt it. This is an invitation to reinstate such notions as imperfection, deceleration, inefficiency and the opacity at the core of our visions of the future.
PART #1 MYTHOLOGIES: This first cycle represents a retrospective analysis of the machine 'progress/innovation' as seen through the eyes of artists who collect, archive and criticise the myths and contradictions of a technological utopia that has developed over the decades, since the industrial revolution to our current post-media era.
DISNOVATION – RESEARCH BLOG
DISNOVATION RESEARCH GROUP
The Disnovation research blog compiles occurrences of the propaganda of innovation on a daily basis, as well as providing a platform for those discordant voices whose intention it is to deconstruct the arguments of this propaganda, to shine a light on the underlying ideologies, or envisage other possibilities. It is an archive of emerging issues and a place that brings together the various tools to evaluate and put into context changes in the field of innovation since the 1940s.
By studying how Cubans invent and manufacture objects to overcome economic restrictions, Ernesto Oroza showcases models of behaviour and reactions to technology itself, but above all to the authority and veracity that these capitalistic products supposedly embody. These practices and gestures are grouped together under the concept of « technological disobedience ».
A cargo cult is a practice amongst indigenous populations that consists in imitating western culture and technology with the hope of arriving at the same effects. Since 2013, Supercargo has been the means by which Peter Moosgaard has collected ritual appropriations and subversive imitations of technology and products of mass consumption.
According to Nick Bostrom, the invention of the atomic bomb marked the creation of a new category of risk, one that is global in scope and fatal in its outcome, but unlike the danger of a possible meteorite impact, these new risks have a much higher probability. We must therefore take a proactive approach to foresee and prevent those risks that are subjectively estimated to be probable.
THE FUTURE, AS FORETOLD IN THE PAST
Giorgia Lupi tries to visualise the long history of the future as it was predicted or feared in works set in the future. Here she depicts the future as a timeline presenting the scenarios that have come true, those which are no longer possible and those for which we still have to wait and see.
BUREAU D'ÉTUDES, EWEN CHARDRONNET
The 5th issue of The Laboratory Planet will aim to shed a different light on the current catastrophe. It will notably envisage the devastation of the Earth as being part of the preparation to abandon it in the future, as a symptom of alien capitalism. The term 'alien' here refers to someone who leaves behind his/her terrestrial origins to become 'other', to adopt other corporal forms and experience other futures.
SMART CITY ABC
The vision of the « Smart City » was introduced by some of the largest tech corporations to address population growth, political instability and resource scarcity. SMART CITY ABC aims to decode a topic that has produced a specialist vocabulary, in order to promote accessibility to the debate.
WHAT SHALL WE DO NEXT?
Julien Prévieux projects us into our corporal future with an inventory of gestures designed for future interfaces. His animated short film defines itself as an « archive of gestures to come. » It is based on patent applications for new man-machine interfaces that were filed at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) between 2006 and 2011.

World Brain describes the planetary network that surrounds us and provides theoretical tools to understand it. The interactive website is an online resource centre for finding one's way around the world brain: it is a documentary, a work of fiction and a how-to handbook.
ARTIFICIAL FEAR, INTELLIGENCE OF DEATH
Lauren Huret travelled to San Francisco to carry out a field study in the form of conversations with philosophers, publishers, engineers, programmers and historians. The resulting artist's book bears witness to the diversity of viewpoints she encountered and the complexity of trying to define the contours of what is at stake in terms of AI.

NOEMA, AN ANALYSIS ON FIFTEEN YEARS OF INNOVATION
In the last fifteen years social networks, smartphones, biotechnologies, 11 September 2001 and the financialisation of economy are the five factors with the greatest effect in the relationships among technology, society, science and culture. These are the first conclusions that have been drawn after a survey conducted among the members of the advisory board and of the scientific committee of Noema, the online magazine on the relationships between technology, science and society. This survey paves the way to a wider analysis which will take place online starting from April 15th for two weeks that will involve the whole public of the magazine.
On the occasion of the magazine's fifteenth anniversary, Noema asked some of the personalities who collaborate with the magazine for indicating which ideas, events or objects they consider most influential in the relationships among science, innovation, technology and culture.
The results of the interviews show that, over the period considered, new technologies have deeply transformed the codes used by human beings. In the first place the communication's ones, increasingly pushing both towards globalization and disintermediation through social networks and in the direction of an even greater pervasiveness through smartphones, which allow people to be always on. Biotechnologies go on in expanding human capabilities modifying the natural codes, pushing onward the ability of creating and transforming the living systems.
Finally, according to the same survey, two events have deeply changed the contemporary society: the tragedy of September 11, 2001, and the financialisation of economy. The first one has lead to the limitation of some individual freedoms and privacy for security reasons; the second one has lead to a strong reduction of the industrial activities in advanced capitalist countries, and to the worse economic crisis in the world history since 1929, with a fall of employments and a growing job insecurity.
At the end of April we will see if these results will be confirmed by Noema's readers or if new factors will emerge.
This survey is one of the many initiatives that in the last 15 years have seen the direct involvement of the magazine's readers in debates about the topics which have mostly characterized the evolution of contemporary societies.
In Italy Noema is one of the most long-lived and influential online magazines on the relationships among technology, science and society; and on the effects that they have on communication, art and on the many disciplines derived from science, like Artificial Intelligence, Artificial Life, Internet of Things, Biotechnologies, Genetics and Robotics. The magazine publishes, in different languages, texts of authors whose work is fundamental in reflecting about contemporary issues, as you can see in the collaborators' page (http://noemalab.eu/noema-board/).
Noema was born from an idea of Pier Luigi Capucci and is online since March 2000. Its roots date back to an experience of the early 90's, when a small group at the University of Bologna created NetMagazine (http://org.noemalab.eu/sections/specials/netmag_magnet/main.html), the first online magazine in Italy.
In the last 15 years Noema has started many projects, from didactics to publishing, to journalism, to Open Source and art. The most relevant among them, for their innovativeness and significance, are FiveWordsForTheFuture (http://fivewordsforthefuture.eu/), to help people in understanding the meaning of innovation, recognize the "new" and imagine the future as a possible and near time. <mediaversi> (http://www.mediaversi.it/), a book series on the relationships among media, technologies and society in its fundamental manifestations: culture, representation, communication, media and forms of expression. And the e.lab ( e-learning.lab, http://noemalab.eu/e-learning/), born in 2002 as a collaborative platform to support education, created for universities and academies to share material, face with students and improve teaching.
Therefore, Noema is a key magazine in the analysis of the cultural systems' transformation, which keeps on in exploring and monitoring the society's evolution thanks to its net of authors.
