subnetTALK: Leonhard Lass, Mi. 08.03., 18:00


subnetTALK 2023 on the topic of „all inclusive“.
Insight and dialogue where art, science and technology intersect.

Depart constructs audiovisual worlds as dynamic systems – transitory sandboxes of synchronicities which border on the surreal and enable the unexpected by means of cross-modal emergence.
I will discuss our computational approach to poetics that places the computer simulation and generative techniques at the core of our semiotic investigations. We explore the relation of myth, ritual and algorithmic manifestations at the dissolving boundaries between the virtual and the real. A stroll through uncanny valleys and liminal spaces, where volatile meanings emerge from a semantic twilight.

Leonhard Lass (1978) is a digital artist, designer and lecturer based in Vienna.
1999 he has founded the artist group „Depart“ together with the musician Gregor Ladenhauf where he focuses on the computational construction of poetic systems, which strive towards an intricate individual experience.
As a designer he deals with complex interfaces for process control and data visualisation. He has been teaching about generative design, data mapping and UX design.

6 p.m.

one hour – Input approx. 20 min, Dialogue approx. 40 min.

Insight and dialogue in the field of tension: art, research, material.

subnetTALK is an open dialogue format. subnet invites artists and researchers to give an impulse on topics in the field of tension between art, material and research. This impulse is the basis for the following dialogue. Both impulse and dialogue will be recorded and broadcast by FS1. Rüdiger Wassibauer moderates the dialogue.

subnetTALK is a cooperation between the Center for Human Computer Interaction (University of Salzburg) and subnet.
