A free lecture by Marius Watz
Friday 25 January 2013, Eindhoven, NL
During the lecture Watz will explain the state of computational aesthetics, from early pioneers to the recent boom in creatives working with code. From infoporn to data sculpture and generative landscape painting, what new ideas are coming out of this new movement? And how do you deal with algorithmic clichés anyway?
