Digital Aesthetics Reading Group: 4th May 2016

School of Arts Research Students are invited to attend the inaugural meeting of the Digital Aesthetics Reading Group on Wednesday 4 May from 6-8pm. The reading group is organized by the Vasari Research Centre for Art and Technology and meetings will be held in the Vasari (basement of 43 Gordon Square, below the cinema). The reading group is an opportunity for Birkbeck staff and graduate students interested in digital culture and aesthetics to gather and discuss relevant texts, artworks and developments in the field.

For this first meeting we will discuss a chapter from Orit Halpern’s recent book Beautiful Data: A History of Vision and Reason since 1945 and screen a selection of film work produced by the designers Ray and Charles Eames.
