    Data Visualization: A Unique Storyteller.Xiaoxu Dong - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (3):259-279.
    Science and technology have changed all aspects of our lives, including the mode of narration, from traditional stories to data stories. Storytellers have been integrating visualizations into their narratives. From the case studies of some artworks and our students' works to visualization research, we have found distinct genres of narrative visualization and the education method for university students. We describe the differences between these artworks, together with interactivity and information transmission. Some small experiments and some examples of students' works will (...)

    Ontophany and Transimmanence in the Experience of Contemporary Media Artworks.Gabriela Freitas - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (3):229-240.
    How have contemporary media artworks been proposing hybrid experiences, discussing the ontological implications from the experimentation with emerging techniques that alter our way of being-in-the-world? These experiences dialectically articulate aesthetic relations between real and virtual, visible and invisible, human and technological. In this article, we develop a participant observation of two specific works: Generation 244, by Scott Draves, and Zee, by Kurt Hentschläger. This observation establishes a dialogue with phenomenology as it considers experience and perception as needed prerequisites for the (...)

  3. Wildly Oscillating Molecules: Technological Mediation of the Atomic Force Microscope.Andrea Rassell - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (3):199-213.
    The human sensory experience of submolecular phenomena is only possible through complex technological mediations that include not just magnifications, but also manipulations of time and translations from one sense to another. In my creative moving image project Wildly Oscillating Molecules, I develop strategies for using an atomic force microscope as a cinematographic instrument, specifically using its tactile mechanisms to generate video. Using the AFM over four years to generate experimental moving image installations, I examine my physical and psychological experiences of (...)

  4. An Agential-Narrative Approach on Art Semiosis.Sergio Rodríguez Gómez - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (3):281-295.
    In this article, a semiotic approach is proposed to explain how human agents use and give meaning to art in complex contexts. Inspired by the psycho-historical approach on art appreciation, which attempts to embrace psychological and cognitive aspects of art sense-making, as well as the art-historical context dependence of artworks, an extended theory is suggested: an agent's art use and interpretation can be described using three general categories of meaning grounding: phylogenetic recurrence, ontogenetic recurrence and collective recurrence. These categories explain (...)

  5. Bio-Electronic Aggregates on Neon-Paleolitikos Strata.André Sier - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (3):215-228.
    Electronic machinic phenomena yield fascinating links with biological processes. Either in the macro-micro-structure of binary encoded information ‐ bytes on media ‐ to the processual flow programs execute on hardware while operating it. Observing micro-electronic worlds akin to living entities: electronic voltages running throughout electronic architectures pipelining data to memory registers; operating systems executing programs on electronic substrates; data flows taking place in machines and in communications protocols within networks. Static art-sci constructs explore and visualize these observations as 2D drawings (...)

    Organic Technique: The Formation of a New Type of Human‐Technique‐Nature Relationship as Exemplified in Bamboo Construction.Y. M. Solanilla Medina & D. V. Mamchenkov - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (3):251-258.
    This article demonstrates the possibilities and problems of the formation of a new type of human‐technique‐nature relationship ‐ the organic technique ‐ in modern civilization. It is a relationship in which neither human nor nature must adapt to the needs of technology; rather, the technique is embedded in nature and becomes 'human-sized'. We can find a model for building this new type of relationship in the construction of buildings from bamboo. The uniqueness of bamboo as a building material manifests in (...)

    Art in the Era of Ecocentrism.Suzete Venturelli, Artur Reis, Nycacia Delmondes, Prahlada Hargreaves & Tainá Martins - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (3):241-250.
    This article describes activities carried out at the computational art laboratory and discusses a question about place. To think of place as the place of universal, it’s ground, the place where you live, it isn’t only a residence place, a construction of exploration, but also the planet as a possible place of survival. Therefore, we will present artworks that, in the name of a conception inspired by ecocentrism, propose to eliminate the ontological and axiological difference between all living beings and, (...)

    Spatial Poetics, Place, Non-Place and Storyworlds: Intimate Spaces for Metaverse Avatars.Elif Ayiter - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (1):155-169.
    This article will ask questions that connect the conceptions of Marc Augæ#169;'s 'place/non-place' and Gaston Bachelard's 'poetic space' to the avatar of real-time, perpetual, online, three-dimensional virtual builder's worlds, also known as the metaverse. Are metaverses 'places' or 'non-places'? Do we actually live in the metaverse or do we just traverse these worlds very much in the sense that Marc Augæ#169; defines them as transitional loci that are assigned only to circumscribed and specific positions? The question following from this is (...)

    Symbiotic Fictional Experiments in the Visual Arts.Ana Carvalho - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (1):111-118.
    Sameness and difference, seen through the use of the term symbiosis, are tooled for the construction of other, future realities. Two examples from literature will describe how symbiosis is, in science fiction, used as means to propose connections with Otherness, through a return to a nature recovered, and as part of rational human deliberate actions towards the recovery of our present damaged planet. Science fiction is where the methodological approach is formulated, as thought experiments, within Ursula Le Guin's literature, from (...)

    AI Becomes Her: Discussing Gender and Artificial Intelligence.Pedro Costa & Luísa Ribas - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (1):171-193.
    This article seeks to understand why femininity seems to be often present in artificial intelligence and tackle the questions that arise when this phenomenon is subject to closer inspection. It draws on a previous study on the relationship between gender and AI, complemented by an analysis of digital assistants such as Alexa, Cortana, Google Assistant and Siri that reveals how these entities tend to be feminized through their anthropomorphization, the tasks that they perform and their behavioural traits. Furthering this discussion, (...)

    Playful Design, Empathy and the Nonhuman Turn.Fabrício Fava, Camila Mangueira Soares & Miguel Carvalhais - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (1):141-154.
    In the context of interspecies play involving humans, we find limitations when it comes to understanding most species. One reason for this may be the fact that we tend to anthropomorphize the other to be able to empathize with it. In light of this, how can we infer communication signs of other species so we are able to connect with the nonhuman world? We look for answers to this question by adopting a phenomenological approach that allows us to decentre from (...)

    Reflections on Repetition, Abstraction and Transformation.Julia Heurling - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (1):49-55.
    According to Encyclopaedia Britannica, abstraction refers to the cognitive process of isolating, or 'abstracting', a common feature or relationship observed in a number of things, or the product of such a process. New World Encyclopaedia describe abstraction in philosophical terminology as the thought process wherein ideas are distanced from objects. Abstraction uses a strategy of simplification that ignores formerly concrete details or leaves them ambiguous, vague or undefined. Abstract thinking, as opposed to concrete thinking, has no application in 'the real (...)

    Creating Algorithmic Audio-Visual Narratives Through the Use of Augmented Reality Prints.Iro Laskari - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (1):25-31.
    This article investigates the hypothesis of creating non-linear audio-visual narratives, through an unanticipated use of traditional print-based games, enriched with videos, via augmented reality possibilities. A ludic system has been created and presented. Based on a traditional card game, a non-linear cinematic narrative occurs. We attempt to examine the following questions: in which way can we bring together different forms of visual communication, such as graphic design and video? Can the above forms create a complex narrative whole and what kind (...)

    Hybrid Art: Towards a New Scepticism.Iro Laskari, Irene Mavrommati & Eleni Glinou - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (1):33-47.
    In Hybrid artwork, whereby the digital and the real are mixed, the artist/creator has to additionally manage interaction. Interaction is seen as an added dimension to narration: the art piece turns from being a means towards a narration to a path towards an experience. It is argued that strong metaphysical concepts give place to new more fragmented ones. This nihilism and fragmentation can be seen as a cause of concern but also as an opportunity.

    Plant Portraits: Creative Processes, Communication and the Search for New Paradigms1.Lucia Leao - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (1):57-70.
    What can we learn from plants? Which forms of intelligence and knowledge can we discover by dedicating ourselves to understanding the life of a plant, its characteristics, interactions with the environment and cultural narratives? This article aims to bridge recent studies in plant intelligence, Semiotics and creative processes. Departing form the idea that the world arrived at a critical situation and the planet Earth cannot continue being exploited as an infinite source, we argue that it is necessary to promote transformations (...)

    Energyscapes: Interconnecting Body, Clinic, Qi and Dao.Michelle Lewis-King - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (1):95-109.
    Drawing upon my expertise as an artist and clinical acupuncturist with training in biomedicine, my artistic research adapts Chinese medicine practice into a strategic tool to investigate new synergies between art, medicine, technology, East, West, modernity and pre-modernity. In my performances, I use Chinese pulse diagnosis and acupuncture point location as transdisciplinary artistic technologies that are capable of measuring and responding to quantum entanglements between individuals and their social, natural and cosmic milieus ‐ or what can be referred to as (...)

    Curatorial Perspectives on Contemporary Art and Science Dealing with Interspecies Connections.Olga Majcen Linn & Sunčica Ostoić - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (1):79-94.
    This article addresses a curatorial position on specific bioart projects dealing with the topic of interspecies relationships of humans and other mammals, insects and plants through three works by Slovenian authors Saša Spačal, Špela Petricˇ and Maja Smrekar. All the artworks are based on a posthumanist perspective, strongly advocating possibilities of equality in interspecies relations and coexistence, and yet also bear a potential for monstrosity. The subjects, modes and procedures of the artworks analysed are compatible with a curatorial practice able (...)

    The Microbiome Biosphere as an Artistic Resource.Patrícia R. Moreira - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (1):71-77.
    The microbiome has become one of the most recognizable research subjects and presences in the headlines of news and scientific articles published in almost every biological science area in the last few years. The steady decline in the price of DNA sequencing has enabled metagenomics, community analysis and genome sequencing to enter routine research in microbiology and biotechnology laboratories all around the world. The already open access to national and international databases that include nucleotide and protein sequences such as GenBank (...)

    Non-Human Labyrinths: Roots and Additional Other Than Human Formation Methods.André Sier - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (1):5-23.
    Within the context of exploring new electronic arts' aesthetic regions and unexampled connections between generative art, games and mythology, my practical artistic research was led to focus on labyrinthine structures as exquisite legendary spatial gaming devices and as possible pathways to gain deeper humane insights, resulting into discoveries of original methods of labyrinth formation by means other than human. Labyrinths and mazes are inextricable paths, human made millennial structures that provide spatial challenges often connected with feedback, compression, entanglement and hyper (...)

    A Stride Towards Sentient Cities: Architecture as Performance Art.Terry Trickett - 2019 - Technoetic Arts 17 (1):119-139.
    My researches into 'architecture as music' have led me to investigate how a synchronicity of sound and space, acting together, can enable buildings to become not only smart but also sentient. It was one particular building in the City of London that prompted me to join the patterns of architecture with the rhythms of music in an experimental audio-visual performance called Citirama. Each of the piece's three movements throws some new light on what makes a building 'musical' ‐ i.e. capable (...)
