Digital Aesthetics

The National Science and Technology Museum (MUST) of Milan features a permanent programme of digital art installations to stimulate reflection on new digital languages. It also offers a means of exploring relations with artificial intelligence, and the links between technological innovation and creative artistic processes.

The aim of the joint venture with MUST is to foster new scenarios for reflecting on and exploring two seemingly distant worlds, namely humanistic knowledge and scientific knowledge, and to identify any links and overlapping points between them.

IBSA Foundation for scientific research is contributing towards the project by supporting two digital installations: "Robotic voice-activated word kicking machine" by Neil Mendoza and "Chromata" by Michael Bromley. The works inspire and foster deeper reflection for a wide audience: students, teachers and adults all take part in workshops in the laboratories, offering opportunities for interacting with artists and creatives.

Available to the public at the Museum from 20 November 2021; for more information, visit the dedicated page on the MUST website.

Giacinto Di Pietrantonio, Art-addicted curator, and Patrizia Cerutti, STEM Education Program Director at the Leonardo Da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology, talk about the "Digital Aesthetics" project.
