RMIT Design Hub, Level 3, Lecture Theatre
As part of the Design Techniques Lecture Series, RMIT Architectuer & Urban Design invites you to a free public lecture.
Jon McCormack is an Australian-based artist with a dynamic and highly experimental practice working at the nexus of art – technology – society. His globally recognized practice is driven by an enduring interest and research in computing. McCormack is an original hybrid artist whose creative practice emerges from an amalgam of education pathways, with an Honours degree in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, a Graduate Diploma of Art (Film and Television) and a PhD in Computer Science. McCormack’s practice transverses generative art, sound, evolutionary spaces, computer creativity, visualisation, virtual reality, interaction design, physical computing, machine learning, L-systems and developmental models. Inspired by the complexity and wonder of the natural world, his work is concerned with electronic “after natures” – alternate forms of artificial life that may one day replace a lost biological nature, due to unfettered human progress and development.
