About this event

Creative technologies and intertwined innovation

This free talk is part of the VCA Director's Dialogue series, hosted by VCA Director Emma Redding.

The pandemic has advanced the digitisation of arts practice globally. In this context, a panel of distinguished artists considers the ways that technology co-exists with the human body, and how we build and predict futures through art.

Panellists reflect on the impact of emerging technologies on their own practices and speculate on where we might be heading next. Along the way they discuss the influence of artificial intelligence, datafication, sensors, the proliferation of screens, and the impact of virtual production on theatre, art, and film. They also consider the influence of the arts on emerging technologies, and the potential of art-tech collisions to propose alternative ways of living, making and collaborating.

This venue has wheelchair access. If you have any other access requirements, please email us directly at fineartsmusic-er@unimelb.edu.au.
