Régine Debatty Interviews Guilherme Kujawski


art.ficial emotion 3.0

In its third edition, art.ficial emotion 3.0, the art and technology international biennial that will take place this Summer in Sao Paulo, associates the words "interface" and "cybernetics" to synthesize the idea of interactivity.

As the organisers write: "But, what does "interface" mean? And "cybernetics?" Basically, the former represents any surface which separates two systems, while the latter is a discipline that studies how the referred systems communicate and interact with each other.

If interactivity can be freely defined as a reciprocal relationship between two systems through an interface, just like it happens in the interaction between humans and machines or between machines and other machines, then the works selected for the exhibition perfectly fit within the theory of cybernetics."


The works selected "embody concepts which are important to cybernetics, such as feedback, communication, causality, information, observation, predictability and equilibrium.

The line-up of the event is simply amazing:
