If a robot is programmed to draw a portrait is that art?
If dancers follow the rules governing a car inspection system is that choreography?
These are some of the questions that Martine and I will be investigating in Algo-rhythms a workshop at the Science Museum’s Dana Centre on the evening of November 14th. In it, we will be looking at whether we rate automated art differently than art that we know was produced by a human being.
Participants will choose from a range of creative tasks to come up with a drawing, a dance or a sound-scape, or a combination of these. We will then see if we can spot the difference between what was created from a set of automated rules and what was constructed freely from a human perspective. We will talk a bit about the different automated and creative strategies we used to create our dance Meeting Place and then we will perform it.
This event is free but has to be booked in advance. Click here to book.
We hope to see you there!
