What will spirituality look like in 50 years? Can we create ‘technology for the soul’? What would that look like?
Moreover, what conversations will artists be having about spirituality in 50 years? As some issues are solved, will others appear? In 50 years, what questions and themes will artists be addressing in relation to spirituality?
I was asked these questions and more as part of a fascinating episode produced by Bloomberg Media on Art, Technology and Transcendence. These questions were addressed by leading contemporary artists and theorists who interweaved a vision of art which is intrinsically linked to the exploration and transformation of consciousness. Our understanding of consciousness is currently presented as a combined enterprise assisted by developments in technology, science and art.
I am delighted to share with you the episode on Art, Technology and Transcendence by Bloomberg Media. Dr Lila Moore and Prof Roy Ascott, iconic figure in Cybernetics, telematic and technoetic arts, join Tegan Bristow, Hsin-Chien Huang, Lin Wanshan and I.R. Bach for the final part of this episode focused on the intersection of art, technology and SPIRITUALITY to predict what the future might bring.
The full interview on the future of spirituality, art and technology will be shared with the students of the Alef Trust course entitled: The Shamanic Spirit in 21st Century Art, Culture and Technology, starting in February.
