ADA Symposium 2010, ENERGETICS & INFORMATICS
ADA (Aotearoa Digital Arts) are hosting an exhibition and an outdoor
screening event as part of the ADA 2010 Symposium held in Wanganui, New
Zealand in December. These events are to encourage and showcase
conversations between practitioners working in similar areas of research
in different fields of practice using digital media. This framework
references the work of Jack Burnham who curated Software, Information
Technology: Its New Meaning for Art exhibition in 1970. The exhibition
explored the convergence of art and technologies through the discovery
of parallel structures in both spheres of practice and concepts of
‘system aesthetics’. In 2010 these congruences are all the more integral
as we engage with the impact of energy and information on our planet.
