This year’s event will focus on our human inherent connect to art and how technology is changing that relationship, exploring topics such as immersive and embodied storytelling, creative artificial intelligence and the arts, radically inclusive fashion and more. The human race has always practiced creativity. The urge to create art is rooted almost as deep as our instinct to survive. Today’s emerging technologies are disrupting the ways we use our creative minds and are dissolving the divide between human and technology; raising the question “Why Human?”
In recent years, Hollywood has enticed our imaginations with the future of robots. Meanwhile, scientists have proven progress toward technological singularity. At Hacking Arts 2017 we want to start a different discussion. We want to bring together creative technologists, artists, innovators, and hackers to better understand our inherent connection to art. What makes art created by a human unique? What are the tools and mediums altering art as we know it? Will artificial intelligence surpass human creativity? Will artificial intelligence become a replacement, a partner or a tool for humans? Is art the last frontier for tech, and are we dissolving the space between human and technology? If so, what new doors are opened up in this dissolved space?
The Hacking Arts 2017 hackathon is your opportunity to bring your idea about advancing the arts alive. Applications for the hackathon are now open and we can't wait to hear from you.
