A variety of disciplines and contexts - united through the use of computational techniques - converge at Metasis, the degree show for the MA/MFA Computational Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London.
The exhibiting artists declare that code and electronics are creative tools that sit alongside paint, pencils, cameras and musical instruments; tools that can be both critiqued and embraced. Technology enhances existing skills - and enables the exploration of new creative pathways.
The works on show illustrate the versatility of computational applications when introduced to fine art. They demonstrate interactive, generative and procedural techniques, ranging from critiquing the autonomy of the system to the role of the artist.
Metasis is the result of a year of intense study, equally focused on technical and critical aspects of computational arts.
Course leader Theodoros Papatheodorou highlights the skills that students acquire throughout their study on the MA/MFA: “The Computational Arts Masters at Goldsmiths is a hands-on programme for the next generation of digital artists to develop practical skills in the fields of creative coding, physical computing and computational arts.
“Students from all backgrounds are encouraged to be inventive, multidisciplinary and ambitious as they find themselves programming computers, building robots and designing generative systems. The computational arts field has grown dramatically in recent years and our students are at the forefront of this cultural change, making art by controlling complex computational technology in creative ways.”
The exhibition will preview on Thursday 8 September 2016 at 6pm, and will continue until the 11 September. Special performances have been scheduled for the exhibition’s opening night.
