Ars Electronica Garden Chicago

Where we emerge

The whole world experienced the struggles of life in confinement and how it boosted our relationship with the digital world. This collective experience marked a watershed in the way we experience life. Technology entered our lives as a working tool and now we have become a technology culture. This year’s edition of Ars Electronica is an invitation to reflect on the close relationship we have developed with the digital world and how we deal with it while questioning its benefits and shortfalls. It is an invitation to think about our faculty, to take action and claim our right to participate in shaping the world we want to inhabit. This year the Art and Technology Studies (ATS) department of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) presents the work of its community through a series of online and in-person events. The ATS garden seeks to engage in a multidisciplinary dialogue and become a physical and virtual space where the SAIC and the Chicago communities can reflect on our roles in this digital world and rethink ways to engage with these digital systems. With roots in innovation and experimentation, SAIC’s Art & Technology Studies department focuses on the use of technology as an art medium. Started in 1969, the program has been at the forefront of the intersection of art, science, and technology of one of the world’s most influential art and design schools.
