the course

The four lectures represent an illustrative sample of the many possible declinations of digital applications in the various fields of arts and culture. The intention is to show the different practices, the different creative and production processes, and the tools used behind these different types of artistic products.
The lectures range from the theme of digital installations for the valorisation of Cultural Heritage, to the creative and artistic approach aimed at narration and storytelling, passing through different forms of creativity and artistic expression, always starting from innovative tools and experimental techniques.

Navigating Art Archives

  • Matteo Cellini

Matteo Cellini, part of the CamerAnebbia collective from Milan, explains how some of the many interactive installations are produced from museum archive materials, incographic and documentary sources, and works of art from some of Italy’s most important collections. The lecture explores the techniques used to generate visual landscapes, through retouching, post production and real time rendering techniques, which can be used through touch screens and large-scale video projections.

From Classical Art to Digital Art. New forms of narration

  • Rino Stefano Tagliafierro

The lecture focuses on the presentation of a number of multimedia works – short films, commercial projects and video installations – in which a story is told through the use of digitally processed works of classical figurative art. All stages of production, from the conception of the project to the final realisation, are then addressed and explored.

New tools, new ideas. Interactivity between the Digital and the Physical

  • Klaus Obermaier

The appointment with artist Klaus Obermaier is dedicated to investigating how digital tools can be used as an exploratory medium for artistic research, and how new technologies can generate forms of interactivity that somehow relate the physical dimension of the body to the digital dimension of artistic creation.

Digital exhibits. Multimedia and interactive devices for Cultural Heritage

  • Cristina Barbiani

Cristina Barbiani, scientific head of the Master Digital Exhibit at the Iuav University of Venice, explores in this lesson the different technologies behind multimedia and interactive installations, which allow, through a work of visual ‘translation’, to narrate and return scientific investigations, historical research data and results of archaeological surveys, through some realised examples.

On Digital Photography

Starting from an investigation into the technical evolution of photography in the digital era, Ljubodrag Andric proposes a reflection on the current over-production of “weightless” photographic images, as much due to their ephemeral nature as to their lack of adherence to a narrative of reality.

April 27, 2023

Photographic Promenade

Symposium around the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, in order to explore the methodological part of the artist’s work and the themes raised during the previous lecture from a practical point of view.
