Join us for a lively discussion about the role of new and emergent technologies in the visual arts and contemporary culture and what it means to live, work and create in the pre-history of the future.

Discussing the developments in motion capture, mining virtual libraries of code, artificial intelligence, gaming and computer generated imagery and more, the panel features Feedback Loops exhibiting artist Lu Yang (digital presence, and translation by Zheng Zhou), with Professor Uwe Aickelin Head of School of Computing and Information Systems at University of Melbourne, and Dr Claire Roberts, Associate Professor Art History at University of Melbourne, and electronic musician Becky ‘Sui Zhen’ Freeman. The panel will be moderated by Rae Johnston, a multi-award-winning STEM journalist, Science and Technology Editor for NITV, host of That Startup Show.
