14th hybrid conference: Christa Sommerer and Laurent Mignonneau
Interactive Art revisited, between interaction and participation
23 February 2015
5:00 - 7:00
31 Rue d’Ulm
For more than 20 years, Laurent Mignonneau and Christa Sommerer have created digital interactive installations. This conference offers an overview of their work, dealing with some aspects of the relation between humans and plants, intuitive interfaces, generative art and computer evolution thanks to genetic algorithms, media archeology and a presentation of their recent works on the value of art and attention economy. Two of their works entitled "Escape" and "Excavate" will be presented to the public during the conference.
Laurent Mignonneau and Christa Sommerer are professors in the "Interface Culture" department that they created ten years ago at the Linz University of Arts and Design, in Austria.
