Since 9 September 2019, the Enghien-les-Bains Arts Centre and the Orange Foundation have joined forces to offer a free online course open to all on Art and digital creation. This MOOC allows you to discover how technology has changed, since the mid-20th century, our perceptions of space, time and ourselves... but also how it has influenced our relationship with a society in full transformation. To understand and dream the world.
For several decades now, artists have been seizing the technological transformation taking place in our lives to propose new imaginary worlds. By questioning our future, they are creating a new narrative, and opening up the field of creative possibilities as digital technologies multiply. Musicians, visual artists, choreographers, videographers: they all bring to life the relationships we share with robots, algorithms, sounds, virtual universes and new imaginary worlds.
In this MOOC created by the Centre des arts d'Enghien-les-Bains (CDA) and the Orange Foundation, you will meet dozens of artists using digital technologies.
The three central sequences allow us to explore themes that affect us all:
- A new world announced, from the city to nature: How to inhabit the world, build the city of tomorrow or transform nature? This sequence approaches the impact of technologies on our environment through the artistic prism.
- Crossing the screen, from the real to the virtual: Discover how artists have seized image technologies (screen/computer/smartphone/television...) to upset the boundaries between the real and virtual worlds.
- Men and robots, from autonomy to independence: How will we interact with robots in the future? What relationships do humans have with machines? Here, the artists question themselves on the place of these technological partners in our societies, and on a possible human/machine cohabitation.
More than a course, the MOOC Art and Digital Creation allows us to decipher reality and to question the mutations of our environments.
This online course allows you to master digital tools within everyone's reach, by practicing them in a fun way. Each sequence will allow participants to develop their creativity through regular challenges and to share their images on Instagram.
