Event Details

The 5th annual Hacking Arts Conference and Hackathon will take place this year on November 11th and 12th at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This unique event focuses on igniting cross-disciplinary innovation, bringing together artists, engineers and entrepreneurs to take on challenges at the intersection of the arts and technology.

 

This year’s event will focus on our human inherent connect to art and how technology is changing that relationship, exploring topics such as immersive and embodied storytelling, creative artificial intelligence and the arts, radically inclusive fashion and more. The human race has always practiced creativity. The urge to create art is rooted almost as deep as our instinct to survive. Today’s emerging technologies are disrupting the ways we use our creative minds and are dissolving the divide between human and technology; raising the question “Why Human?”

 

In recent years, Hollywood has enticed our imaginations with the future of robots. Meanwhile, scientists have proven progress toward technological singularity. At Hacking Arts 2017 we want to start a different discussion. We want to bring together creative technologists, artists, innovators, and hackers to better understand our inherent connection to art.  What makes art created by a human unique? What are the tools and mediums altering art as we know it? Will artificial intelligence surpass human creativity? Will artificial intelligence become a replacement, a partner or a tool for humans? Is art the last frontier for tech, and are we dissolving the space between human and technology? If so, what new doors are opened up in this dissolved space?

 

Join us for this conversation on Nov 11th at the MIT Media Lab.
