<nettime> The Future of Art Forum - A Place for Science and Technology?


I would like to inform you of some news that is happening here at
Everything Art that may be of interest. initiated a
discussion today with a distinguished panel of artists, theorists, critics
and technologists.  It is our intention to promote an exchange of ideas
and elicit a discourse between these minds on the subject of the future of
art and its growing relationship with technology.  Some of the panelists
already have combined art, science and technology together in their work -
for example Stelarc and his robotic sculptures like the Third Hand. 

I invite you to come and read what these groundbreaking artists have to
say.  The discussions will last for the next 3 weeks and the results will
be published in our online magazine, Everything Art, on May 12th, 26th,
and June 9th. 

Some of the panelists participating in the forum are:  
	*	Dr. Rachel Armstrong-Russell - lecturer, TV presenter,
multimedia producer, medical doctor, author
	*	Alan Sondheim - writer, artist, theorist, co-moderator of
the Fiction of Philosophy, Cybermind and Cyberculture email lists

Our panelists will be faced with some interesting topics and questions
dealing with science, technology, religion and art: why have science and
art been 2 opposing cultures!  When/where/how and if science and art will
converge?  What is the future of art? 

I am interested in exploring opportunities for a feature, events mention
