UROŠ KRČADINAC (digital artist, Belgrade)
Creating Personal Data Atlases via Coding, Writing, and Drawing
In his talk Uroš Krčadinac will speak about how to combine mapmaking, computer science, art, writing and storytelling in order to invent new way of feeling and sensing the 21st century world of humans, networks, and data.
In particular, he will fokus on his latest algorithmic art project All-Aligned. It is an open source AI system for automated vexillology, visualizing the fractal-like fragmentary nature of our digital condition and raising questions about the society where identity creation is mediated by Big Tech algorithms.
He will mention other projects as well, such as his interactive infographic travel novel Bantustan: Atlas of an African Journey, an example of digital ergodic literature and two books on digital poetics, Tactical and Optimised Poetics, published by Multimedia Institute in Zagreb.
