follow Method or Hypothesis: the changing role and importance of ICT in arts and science projects
This paper will focus on a comparison of different presences of ICT in art and science projects. Through case studies drawn from SCAN’s portfolio, Helen Sloan will look at roles that ICT can play in the development or dissemination of such works. As these roles are defined, questions arise around whether ICT is a facilitator of a concept or it is the thesis of a project. It will investigate how ICT, which is technology based, functions alongside an interrogation of the grand narratives of art and science.
