ART + TECH ENCOUNTERS: Sustainability
NFTs. Economic inequity. Neural networks. Environmental disaster. As artists use, subvert and explore new technologies, these same technologies have enormous environmental impact. How do we make sense of minting an artwork into an NFT, when minting artwork on the blockchain has an enormous ecological footprint? What does it mean to use a neural network, when the carbon costs of running and using one are huge? How can we make sense of this art-tech landscape in relation to the environmental challenges we face, and what it means to be making digital artwork in a time of crisis?

Join Alice Yuan Zhang, Dr. Dominic Bednar, Zane Cooper, Dr. Stefan Kruijer and Xiaowei Wang for a discussion about the intersection of technology and susainability.

The event is part of NODES. ART + TECH ENCOUNTERS, a series of talks that brings together artists, technologists and researchers from the U.S. and Europe. The event is part of THE GRID and organized by the Goethe-Institut San Francisco.

Oct 28, 2021 10:00 AM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)
