What we're about

Simply, our meetup aims to fuse the world of art and the world of tech.

This comes in a variety of forms that leverages all aspects of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) and creates novel connections between them. If you find yourself in any of these fields craving collaboration with like-minded (or other brained) people, this meetup is for you.

Art made with code, architecture created from musical notation, paintings by robot dogs, all this and much more can be expected to be talked about and worked on at our meetups. Because Atlanta is rapidly growing in both tech startups and artistic ventures (music and film being the most acknowledged), we are in a unique place as a city to position ourselves to be some of the most innovative in the realm of "FutureArt". We'll try to keep a healthy mix of discussion/sharing and workshop styled meetups, as we know this is a new field for most, and we can all benefit from each others varied experiences.

We're also trying to stay in touch between meetups with various discussions, opportunities, and events on our Discord server (it's like Slack yall): https://discord.gg/GNmuudC

Art in Tech Meetup | Paul Boshears - Experiencing the Technosphere

For our November session, we are honored to have Paul Boshears as our guest speaker. He is an Atlanta-based UX Designer, he earned his PhD at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland. His writings on art and neuroscience have appeared in publications like Neuron, Art Papers, and Newsweek. He'll be sharing his experience of Technosphere Research Project in Berlin. This presentation is about some ways in which artists, technologists, and scientists can collaborate to create new ideas and reduce silos between subject matter experts, practitioners, and publics. Scientists coined the term “technosphere” to describe the mobilization and hybridization of energy, material, and environments into a planetary system. But where can someone see the technosphere? How does it impact the everyday experiences of humans, animals, or the environment? To answer these questions, from 2015 to 2019 the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW, in Berlin) hosted the “Technosphere Research Project.” The project included public events and seminars that explored the potential of the technophere concept to coordinate conversations among scientists, artists, and the general public. These investigative and experimental exchanges asked how the technosphere operates today and endeavored to imagine alternative futures. In this presentation I will share my experiences with the HKW’s Technosphere Research Project as co-founder of the media-agnostic publication platform continent. (www.continentcontinent.cc), and continent. was the experimental media collaborator for HKW’s Technosphere project. This presentation will be of interest to folks interested in science and technology, contemporary art, design, and collaborating with people. Looking forward to seeing you there! PS As always, ideas are welcome!

General Assembly

We'd like to invite our members to propose projects or topics they'd like discussed and workshopped at the next meetup. Remember the goal doesn't have to be to only work on one project, but to introduce myriad collaborations in our community to create a wide reach of tech-art creations for Atlanta. Looking forward to seeing you there! PS As always, ideas are welcome!
