The Integrative Media Work of Art, the Keystone of a New Reality


Panel:Panel A


Venue:Stockholm School of Economics

The Integrative Media Work of Art, the Keystone of a New Reality Considered as one of the most important tools created by the human being, digital technology generated essential mutations in art, but, at the same time, in all the fields of reality, transgressing their limits towards transdisciplinarity and integrality. It is expected that an information globalizing and unifying effect, more and more accelerated, will create a boom and consequently the human mind will transcend all is known about matter and its laws, determining a paradigm shift in the consciousness and a reconfiguration of body and neural limits. Developed with the help of digital technology, the integrated media work of art is highly revolutionary uniting all aspects of reality. It seems to meet Kandinski’s visionary predictions (1911) of an art able to shape the future because its “prophetic force with effects manifesting at huge distance in time and space”. The evolutionary modern synthesis, a new science appears as a confirmation. The contemporary paradigm reveals the paradox of physical world (both spiritual and material) which can be understood only through a consciousness expansion underlined by an art domain expansion. The art is seen as an integral phenomenon. The artist, as a design scientist (G. Youngblood, 1970), supervises the human being’s macrotransformation within a global ecosystem. The media work of art, dispersed in the collective consciousnees of multimedia network becomes like the opera magna which transmutes the consciousness and the user becomes co-author who versatile perpetuates the work of art. Thus, prospecting the future, the integrative media work of art can be the stone to a perceptive expansion and a superior understanding of present reality.
