Disnovate Exhibit / Art Hackathon / Paris Design Week
Friday, September 12, 2014
Parsons Paris, Gallery 45 rue Saint-Roch, 75001 Paris, France
Parsons Paris Gallery will host the “Disnovate” hackathon exhibit during Paris Design Week 2014 which takes a fresh view on the theme of “sharing/partager”.
"Disnovate" is a collaboration between Art Hack Day, Parsons Paris and Accès(s) festival. During an intense 48 hour hackathon hosted in Parsons Paris (August 28-30), international artists, hackers and graduate students, will come together to share skills and ideas, and create a flash exhibit on the theme "Disnovate”.
Disruptive innovation is widely heralded as the driving force of progress, influencing all walks of life. Its vocabulary has seeped into domains as disparate as politics, education, or art. Computer culture is not immune: Hackathons have turned into rallies for smarter, cheaper and faster consumption. What role does the whimsical and useless play in this society? Can we evaluate creation without resorting to conceptions of value? What worldview is implied by the language of disruption; what does it clarify and what does it obscure?
WHAT IS ART HACK DAY?
Art Hack Day is an internet-based nonprofit dedicated to hackers whose medium is art and artists whose medium is tech. Art Hack Day bridges the gap between art, technology and entrepreneurship with grassroots hackathons & exhibitions that demonstrate the expressive potential of new technology and the power of radical collaboration in art. Art Hack Day believes in non-utilitarian beauty through technology and its ability to affect social change for public good.
