Digital Aesthetics

National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo da Vinci (IT)

| | |

The Digital Aesthetics Garden will be at the National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo da Vinci with a specific program for the days of the festival. It will exploit Chromata, a work by Michael Bromley, to create an active experience of digital culture that integrates science, technology and aesthetics. Michael Bromley is a web developer using applications and coding in a creative way to design open-source online tools that invite anybody to undertake their own creative explorations. Chromata in, particular, has been designed for the web and is a tool which can turn any image into a unique, animated artwork. In this case, Chromata will be turned into an active, physical experience in one of the Museums’ most recent learning spaces, the Future Inventors Lab, dedicated to digital culture and its intersections with STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics). Visitors are invited to use the tool to explore, modify and re-interpret their own images that become, in turn, the setting of the lab itself in which the visitors are physically immerged. The Digital Aesthetics Garden is part of the specific work being currently undertaken by the National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo da Vinci, which aims to explore the digital culture in its diverse manifestations, its transformative nature and its impact on everyday life, especially with regards to the STEM field and, more specifically, STEM learning through the design and development of learning spaces, resources and programs for different types of visitors.
