C08: Strolling along Leonardo’s Path: Science, Art and the Third Culture

C08: Strolling along Leonardo's Path: Science, Art and the Third Culture (在達文西的小路上漫步:科學,藝術和第三文化

Advances of science, such as biotechnology and artificial intelligence, are changing our lives. Most of us are puzzled by the promises and threats posed by these inventions, while astounded by the power and beauty of science. A new generation of thinkers are developing transdisciplinary practices that blur boundary between art and science. They communicate scientific ideas, critique the unchecked technological development, and initiate a new culture, in which science, technology and art are no longer separate disciplines, but are overlapping aspects of creativity. The speaker will introduce a number of important works in this area, as well as new works by emerging Asian artists, and discuss the impact of transdisciplinary thinking on research and education.     

我們的生活正迅速被新科技改變,如生物技術和人工智能。我們一方面對這些發明所帶來的承諾和威脅感到困惑,同時驚嘆科學的力量和美。一群思想家正在開發一個新的跨學科領域,打破藝術與科學之間的界限。他們推動科學思想,批判技術發展,並發展一套新思維。科學,技術和藝術不再是獨立的學科,而是創造力的不同表現形式。此次演講將通過《科學藝術》史上的重要作品以及亞洲青年藝術家的近期創作,對這一領域進行案例分析,並討論跨學科思維對研究和教育的影響。
