Carolyn L Kane: Chromatic Algorithms

Program:

Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 11:00am

We live at a time in which we are surrounded by visual media and bright colors.  But our experience of color is never just about vision. Colors can also be used to manipulate and control. The colors we now interact with on Tv and our computers are not pigments, like those found in paintings and drawings. Contemporary colors are generated and manipulated through mathematics, using complicated systems very few of us understand. We live in the age of the algorithmic image. Evrything looks bright and colorful, but do we live in a New Dark Age? Tune in tonight when we have a lively conversation with CAROLYN L. KANE, who writes about the history, philosophy and aesthetics of electronic media. We talk about her new landmark book CHROMATIC ALGORITHMS: SYNTHETIC COLOR, COMPUTER ART AND AESTHETICS AFTER CODE.
