 - About the conference - 


Areas of conflu(x)ence proposes an international debate on the relationship 
between art and technology in the present digital era, focusing on the impact 
of the new media in our lives.

Todayâs digital technologies have created a new model of understanding 
different aspects of reality. The change they produced compels us to 
reconsider the conditioning of our modern lives while their potential demands 
to be explored. Post-modernist syntax is today reevaluated and there are 
positions that support the thesis of a hyper-industrialized society.
Science and technology are expected to push forward the frontiers of 
knowledge, while art is asked to mirror these new experiences. The way we 
handle our lives and our expectations is changing continuously according to 
these new frontiers. The place we give to the different aspects of our lives 
and the spatial articulation of our activities are subjected to constant 
conceptualization based on a continuous flux of discoveries. What kind of 
models are we using in perceiving and understanding our new environment ? If 
the tools we use have an influence on the way we deal with our environment, 
how do we use their potentiality ? What traps are to be avoided ? What do we 
expect from technology ? Should the new technologies be a matter of concern ? 
By trying to answer all these questions, the conference intends to identify 
the present condition of our data driven lives and the factors that influence 
it.

On the basis of artistic and aesthetic experiences, we will study the ways in 
which image, sound and space are today affected by the digital technologies.
