CASEY REAS

The American artist Casey Reas is considered a pioneer in the development of aesthetic software. Firstly, he presented his programming language ‘Processing’, which he developed in collaboration with Ben Fry and Doug Bennett. And, with his latest work, he demonstrated a way to create impressive art from algorithms and dynamic software. Reas’ approach is a very experimental one, he is working with dynamic software that independently reacts to changes in its environment, and with systems that are neither programmed nor predictable, but only react to interferences of the user. Casey Reas a professor in the department of Design Media Arts at UCLA and one of the founding professors of the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea.

CARSTEN NICOLAI

The German artist and musician Carsten Nicolai uses a combination of electronic sounds and visual arts as a hybrid tool. Sound is a primary theme in his creative acts which he stages in visualized sound performances. Nicolai started his speech with the minimal pixel video ‘Spray’. With his experimental projects he analysed everyday perception phenomena and examined the links between art, nature and science. Born in 1965, in Karl-Marx-Stadt, Nicolai studied landscaping at the Dresden University of Technology. He then founded the artists’ co-operative gallery ‘Oscar’ and ‘Voxxx’, a culture factory. Carsten Nicolai lives and works in Berlin and Chemnitz.

DR. JOCHEN WAGNER

Philosopher and theologian Dr. Jochen Wagner opened the first see conference in April 2006. In his key note speech he suggested a rehabilitation of sensuous reality. With impressive videos of Maradonna and Ronaldinho the self-confessed soccer fan demonstrated how today’s media use images to evoke viewers’ emotions while at the same time advising listeners to not neglect haptic experiences.
