What happens at the intersection of art, tech, science and sound? What does the art of the future look like? In what way do artists reflect on new media and how do they push the boundaries of technology?
But is I.T. Art?, a podcast by Nxt Museum takes you on a journey to discover art and tech through the works of Nxt Museum’s exhibitions.
The podcast delves into which mediums make up new media art, how we can try to define it, the impact of technology on the world around us and the sense of collaborative experience that such art evokes.
The second season explores new media art in a more fluid way, using the artworks and themes of the exhibition ‘UFO- Unidentified Fluid Other’ to guide the listeners through the realms of digital art and the opportunities and challenges that it presents.
Sharing voices from our artists, curators, but also people outside of the museum, Viktor Vandervelde will investigate how the boundaries between the digital and the physical are blurring and how the tools of today enable us to express in digital realms.
The second season of But is I.T. Art is exploring themes such as WEB 3, playfulness and gamification, mythology, digital identity, gender, how artists create bridges between the digital and physical and how that bridge will become more accessible int he future.
