Aether & Hemera's installation Voyage 'is sailing' to Arizona for taking part to the inspiring Canal Convergence event which animates the Scottsdale Waterfront from early November.
We share the same motto with Scottsdale Public Art : Live the art. Love the place.
The mission of Scottsdale Public Art is to serve as a leader in defining art in the public realm through creative place-making, signature cultural events, exhibitions, and installations contributing to the community's creative, cultural, and economic vitality.
At Aether & Hemera, we are interested in Xdesign for contemporary city , focusing not only on the traditional 'hard' infrastructures of buildings and engineering, but also the 'softer' infrastructures of social networks and human interactions.
We are very excited that Aether & Hemera has taken part in the Northern Design Festival 10 - 20 October 2013, with a new project called 'Fluidity'. Dr. Hilton's talk 'Can we change our mind about gender' has complemented this project. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
This project results from the collaboration between Aether & Hemera and Dr. Kevin Hilton, Reader in Designing for Transformational Experiences, Northumbria University. Dr. Hilton is researching into gender diversity and inclusion, with the aim of using design to help people accept and understand humankind's diversity of gender experiences and needs.
Computational creativity is the study and simulation, by computational means, of behaviour, natural and artificial, which would, if observed in humans, be deemed creative. The Fourth International Conference on Computational Creativity will be held June 12 – 14, 2013 in Sydney, Australia and will exhibit Aether & Hemera art installation during an interactive show and tell showcase. Proceedings here.
We are very excited that our Light and Sound Installation has been selected to be part of Sydney Vivid Festival this year. June 2013 will be an exciting time for Sydney, as the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA 2013) will run from the 7th to 16th, as well as the International Conference on Creativity and Cognition from the 17th to the 20th of June 2013 and the International Conference on Computational Creativity has been announced for the dates 12-14 June, 2013. It will be a very inspiring time for us!
Aether & Hemera have been selected for ArtsIt 2013 to show an interactive light and sound piece at the Hangar Bicocca in Milan, 21-23 March 2013; the exhibition aims at presenting innovative and cutting-edge artworks, performances and shows that exploit ICT technologies. Keynote presentation: Andrea Lissoni.
