Turf Projects & Croydon Tech City present a debate discussing how art and technology can contribute to society and culture. The debate coincides with the exhibition A Pixel Or Digit?
Today the boundaries between art and technology are becoming ever more blurry and the Internet ever vast and current. Artists and technologists need to come together to discuss this expanding relationship. We will be discussing topics including the use of smart phone technology and our reliance on the internet, how we consume images through these digital devices, roles of big multinational organisations such as Apple and Microsoft, how popular culture has been influenced by technology, material and anti-material, Matter and anti matter.
Invited speakers include Jonny Rose (Founder of Croydon Tech City), Paul Harrison (Animator & Co-curator of exhibition A Pixel Or Digit?), Ami Clarke (Artist & Director of Banner Repeater)
There will be a Q&A session at the end of the discussion.
The discussion will be taking place at Croydon College's Conference Room. Please ask at reception for directions.
