Programme of Events


1. Murray McKeich: Computational Creativity

Date: 25 September 2008
Location: Seminar Rooms, Ben Pimlott Building
Time: 18:00 - 20:00

Murray McKeich is a New Zealander currently resident in Melbourne
Australia who has established himself as a leading practitioner of digital
media in Australasian contemporary art. Working with digital photo-media,
his exhibition projects include printed imagery and animation. Described
as both macabre and darkly seductive, Mckeich?s art weaves visions of
surreal fantasy and magic from the tiny pieces of every-day debris found
in urban and domestic environments. His recent practice uses generative
software to autonomously breed art-works.

McKeich believes that computational tools are about to become more
intimately integrated with human creativity. Artists and designers will
take on the role of creative directors while their personalised software
will work for them in the capacity of highly trained, trusted and
autonomous studio assistants, capable of producing finished artworks
without direct supervision. McKeich demonstrates that this form of
practice is possible with current off-the-shelf software and minimal
programming skill. More difficult is the psychological challenge of
breaking with culturally ingrained biological models of creative process
and forming new ones that are natural and native to computational agency.

MURRAY MCKEICH is a visiting fellow in the digital studios throughout
September. He is a practicing artist and course co-ordinator in media arts
at RMIT University, School of Creative Media, Melbourne, Australia. He is
currently completing a PhD in Art/Digital Media at Monash University,
Australia.
