On the 8th day man created machine. But he did not rest


“By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing;
so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.”


Art, Technology and Science relation, nowadays is strengthened, shaping the manifestations of human behavior and expression. Through this relation, man manages not only to explain the physical world but also to redefine his potentials and create new, digital realities.

With the help of technology, art and artistic creation are used as the intermediaries of communication between inconceivable, complex scientific knowledge and humans. They promote research and innovation, enhancing interest in the exploration of new developments. Thus, the wider public comes in contact with science and technology, integrating them experientially and becoming more familiar with it.

On the other hand, as the development of science and technology drastically changes all fields of life, making man a “powerful creator”, art and philosophy come to question and criticize the way this power is controlled and handled. The technologically advanced world is not a terrestrial paradise; on the contrary, it can pose several risks even for its own creator, man.

Athens Digital Arts Festival under the framework of the exhibition BEYOND CODE is proposing the 8th day | Human Created Machine as an exploration of both utopian and dystopian views on the future of art, technology and science.
