Manggha Centre of Japanese Art and Technology ul. Konopnickiej 26

10.10.2014 opening: 11:00 The international conference PATCHlab GENERATOR: Between creation and technology, was organized in collaboration with the Department of Interior Design at the the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, which was a forum for exchanging ideas between researchers, artists and designers. Our attention was focused on the current state of research on new phenomena occurring in art and design in the post-digital era. The conference was dedicated to wide range of forms of creation in visual arts and design. Introduction: Today, technology offers solutions that open up new creative spaces, thereby shortening the distance between art and science. The world of creation and design comes in close interaction with the world of science by using scientific research. Both art and science uses the possibilities offered by the programming and coding, abandoning borders of these separated disciplines so far, artistic practice and design are increasingly based on cooperation of scientists and artists in one team. Advanced technology is used to create innovative ways of expression – formal, aesthetic and utility forms, builds a new quality of communication and in consequence redefines contemporary culture which is often named by the researchers as the era of intelligent machines. The conference is concluded with the scientific publication in publishing house of the Faculty of Interior Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow.
