展览前言 // The exhibition preface

» - «

随着物联网、大数据、人工智能、共享经济等‘新名词’的不断涌现,当今社会已由过去单一的线性发展方式转变为多元的裂变式发展方式。人们生活与教育方式、产业发展结构、城市发展模式等都处于巨大的变革中,我们正处于一个以‘不确定性’为常态的时代。作为一门综合性极强的学科,艺术与设计与科学技术、人们未来生活方式、社会文化、社会创新发展等紧密相关,也必然面临‘不确定性’所带来的巨大挑战。面对裂变式变革,我们又该如何重新定义艺术与设计?如何建构面向未来的艺术与设计学科?

今天我们所知的生命,从它诞生之初就从来没有停止过不断地走向后生命状态。还原到最基础的层面上的时候都是基本粒子。生命和非生命的区别,只是它们的组织形式的区别。生命只是一种不断进化的关系和一种此起彼伏的形式,以及一种自我感知的能力。而这一能力今天正在达到这样一种自我意识,那就是我们传统上认为非生命的要素,其实始终都是构成我们的生命本身的东西,正如木材之于火焰。后生命,表达的是这样一种谦卑:那就是我们对什么是生命的边界,依然一无所知。

“后生命”主题展
// Thematic Exhibition

展览将以“后生命”为主题,重点探讨在生物基因、人工智能和机器人等科技飞速发展的影响下,在日渐受到关注的后人类理论语境中,“生命”这一古老概念的拓展和延伸,以及人在与地球上其他物种共处时,处于“非人类中心主义”思潮中微妙变化的地位。展览主体将分为三部分,分别为“数据生命”、“机械生命”、“合成生命”,从存在于算法中的虚拟生命、基于机械构架的仿生生命,以及作为介于生命定义模糊边界的合成生命来阐释生命这一主题。作品类型包括但不局限于动态影像、互动装置、沉浸式艺术、生物艺术、机械装置、声音视觉、 网络艺术、声音艺术和混合媒介等。

The theme of the exhibition is “Post Life” and it focuses on how the ancient concept of life itself has been expanded in the context of the rapid development of biological genes, artificial intelligence, robots, and the subsequent increase of attention paid to anthropological theories. It is further meant to explore the subtle changes that have led to the idea of humans’ coexistence with other species on Earth from the perspective of non-anthropocentrism. The main exhibition comprises three parts: “Data Life”, “Mechanical Life”, and “Synthesized Life”; all focused on trying to determine what life is as seen from the different points of view of: virtual life brought into existence by computer algorithms, bionic life brought into existence by machinery, and hard-to-define synthetic life. The exhibits will belong to categories such as videos, interactive installations, immersive art, biological art, mechanical installations, audiovisual art, Internet art, sound art, mixed media, and others.

“艺术与科技”实验空间
// “Art and Technology” Lab Space

» - «

艺术与科技跨领域实验室已经成为面向未来的融合式创新新模式,这种实践不仅在改变科技界的研发模式,也为长久以来以工作室为核心的艺术家实践提供了一种新的范式。”艺术与科技”实验空间邀请如MIT Media Lab等多家代表性的国内外实验室参与,集中呈现这些实验室的理念、实践和方法,并展示与“后生命”主题相关的研究成果及艺术作品,展示物料包括但不局限于研发原型、作品原型、演示视频、技术Demo、文献和出版物等;本空间通过展览、工作坊、圆桌对谈等交流方式,旨在交流跨领域实践经验、打造跨领域孵化机体和催化跨领域艺术合作;展览还特别推出中国传统民间的艺术与科技成果项目展示,拓展艺术与科技的历史维度。

The cross-disciplinary “Art and Technology” Lab Space is a new model of futuristic innovation; it not only changes the research and development model of the scientific and technological circles, but also provides new possibilities for the studio-centered artist practice. The “Art and Technology” Lab Space invites a number of representative domestic and foreign laboratories, such as MIT Media Lab, to present their ideas, practices, and methods, along with their research findings and artworks related to the theme of “Post Life”. The exhibits will include R&D prototypes, demo videos, technical demos, literature, and publications. The Lab Space will utilize exhibitions, workshops, or panel discussions to exchange practical experience, activate an urban organic symbiosis, and catalyze cross-field art cooperation. It will also showcase Chinese folk traditional artistic and scientific achievements, emphasizing the extended historical background of art and technology.
