Experimenta Social #43:
Communication and Deep Time
Sat 19 Aug, 5.00 – 6.30pm
Free event | Booking essential
Experimenta Social and Melbourne Conversations, in collaboration with Library at the Dock, present two special conversations as part of the Now or Never Art Trail.
The discussions investigate how we connect and care for one another and how we might collectively thrive across physical and digital realms, now and into the future.
Communication and Deep Time explores the relationship between language and code. Referencing ancient and speculative imaginaries, the discussion examines how the nuances of cultural expression, empathy and bias are conveyed through diverse vocabularies and sentient technologies.
Communication and Deep Time responds to concepts investigated within Georgie Pinn’s interactive artwork ECHO/OHCE and Michaela Gleave’s commission Of sky and sea presented at Docklands 17-20 August as part of the Now or Never Art Trail. Each artwork offers a different perspective on notions of reciprocity, vulnerability and voice within our future past.
Speakers: Exhibiting artist and creative technologist Georgie Pinn, commissioned artist Michaela Gleave and other contributors.
Sat 19 Aug, 5.00 – 6.30pm
