Ken Rinaldo is internationally recognized for robotic art installations, 3D animations, and bio-art. He developes hybrid ecologies with animals, algorithms, plants, and bacterial cultures and promotes social, biological, and machine relationships focused on ecology. His works have been commissioned and shown in over 30 countries, earning an Award of Distinction at Ars Electronica Austria and first prize for Vida 3.0 Spain.
Brazilian artist Louise Botkay and American artist Ken Rinaldo will talk about how they use their art to draw attention to current socio-political and ecological contradictions.
They will discuss how artists can articulate their criticism of existing grievances or their documentation and how they can reach social classes that are not directly connected with art and culture, for example.
