Combining Science and Art to Create an Entirely New Type of Art

 

Second Run of GAS 2017 Exhibition Held

 

The second run of the “Getting Artistic Contents with Science 2017” (GAS 2017) exhibition, hosted by the Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT, Minister You Young Min) and organized by the Korea Foundation for the Advancement of Science and Creativity (KOFAC, President Tai Hyun Park), was held for nine days, from September 23 (Sat.) to October 1 (Sun.), at the Seoul Museum of Art Warehouse. The GAS is an exhibition that was first held in 2016 by KOFAC with the aim of making science more accessible to the general public through art and vitalizing artistic content by promoting the discovery of artistic fields that can be combined with science.

 

Titled “GAS 2017: A.I. and Artificial Intelligence,” this exhibition was centered on artificial intelligence, a topic that has attracted the interest of both the scientific and artistic communities. A total of 22 artists working in nine teams showcased nine artworks that combine science and art under the theme of artificial intelligence. Some of the artworks exhibited were: “Deep Loving,” which portrayed a way of communicating with artificial intelligence; “Project Alter I: An Accidental Encounter,” a media performance that depicted an encounter between artificial intelligence and humans; and “AI, Brain Wave & Ideal City,” an installation artwork that incorporated brain waves to focus attention on the duality of technologies. President Tai Hyun Park of KOFAC remarked, “I hope that this science-infused art exhibition allows visitors to enjoy and learn about science and promotes the continuous convergence of science and various other fields.” The third run of GAS 2017 was held from November 16 to 26 at the contemporary art center “Platform L.”
