Evolution Haute Couture: Art and science in the post-biological age
The representatives of contemporary techno-biological arts do not so much confirm the technological versions of contemporaneity, as determine these versions’ boundaries. The aim of this book is to show how artists are creating new forms and new identities – not as the protagonists of a historically-determined technological narrative, but as its creators.
This volume contains essays by artists, philosophers, scientists, and art historians, including Stephen Wilson, Roy Ascott, Pier Luigi Capucci, Paul Brown, Jon McCormack, Laura Beloff, Jana Horakova, Dmitry Galkin, Erkki Huhtamo, Stelarc, Thomas S. Ray, Robert Mitchell, Konstantin Bokhorov, Melinda Cooper, Dmitry Bulatov, Boris Groys and others.
