The top bill of the Illuminate festival is Wisdom of AI Light, an immersive digital performance in which the audience experience art meshed with science at breakneck speed. Billed as a “digital renaissance”, it is much more than that.
Held in a large pop-up space, the creators are the Istanbul-based Ouchhh Studio who are exploring the limits of what machines can do.
Spurred on by Alan Turing’s Computing machinery and intelligence (1950), a host of digital artists have been exploring how machines replace the artist in thinking, making art and music.
Deadly Denim was founded in 2018 by Rebecca Rickard a Ballardong, Whadjuk woman from the Nyungar nation in Perth W.A. The label has grown from a small collection of 20 recycled denim jackets at the Cinefest Film festival. Over the past 12 months, we have loved adding DD jacket workshops as part of our label. “Art is an access point for people to come together and connect with culture,” says Rebecca. “When art and fashion come together under the value of sustainability, it creates a safe space for people to ask questions, tell stories, and learn from each other.” www.deadlydenim.com.au/our-story
