Mindless Computations

Commercial Practices

LocationHulstkamp Gebouw, Rotterdam
  • Aymeric Mansoux
  • Affiliated research project
  • Permacomputing in the Arts

  • While computer and network technologies have an important place in art and design academies, Aymeric Mansoux is questioning whether or not current educational programmes are equipped to deal with the increasing technical complexity of these objects, as well as their social, political, economic and environmental ramifications. He will contrast this situation with permacomputing, a nascent concept and community of practice, that invites hacker, artists and designers to be more mindful of these new computational wonders, by radically rethinking their relationship and usage of extractive and unsustainable computers and network technology.

    Short presentation for the HR/WdKA day of applied research.
