MILTOS MANETAS 'EXISTENTIAL COMPUTING', THEORY AND WORKSHOP AT THE HAYWARD GALLERY, LONDON
EXISTENTIAL COMPUTING is a Theory and it starts now:
PART 1, SENTIMENTALITY:
A 5 DAY WORKSHOP WITH MILTOS MANETAS AT THE HAYWARD GALLERY
1. There is "sympathy" between humans and computers, there are "feelings".
1.1 In both directions.
2. There are new theories about time. Maybe time doesn't even exist!
3. People meet and exchange information. There are institutions such as The Hayward that invite artists such as myself to talk to people. I suspect it is just data that they
want to know about each other.
4. Art is what is happening when data meet beautifully. This is very rare.
Website of the project (under construction):
Miltos Manetas is an internationally renowned artist born in Greece in 1964.
Manetas makes websites that are art works, they hang on the internet as a painting hang on the walls of a museum. Manetas signs them as unique pieces and collectors buy them as such. (see: jacksonpollock.org). In 2000, he started Neen (neen.org), a new art movement.
