Digital methods, such as alternative currencies, blockchain encryption, crowd sourcing and Big Data of taste are used as artistic techniques. But who are the owners of digital or internet artworks; and what influence does digital distribution of art have on concepts such as authenticity and autonomy? Can the frame (whether physical or digital) in which we view or distribute an artwork also be called art, or is it only a technique? This discussion panel will be organised in collaboration with FRAMED and will be hosted by Filip Visnjic.
Filip Visnjic is an architect, lecturer, curator and a new media technologist born in Belgrade now living in London. He specialises in directing web, new media and architectural projects while also contributing to a number of blogs and magazines about art, design and technology. He is an editor-in-chief at CreativeApplications.net, editorial director of HOLO Magazine, platform director at FRAMED and he lectures at a number of universities in the UK.
