Deep Fakes - In Conversation - Jeffrey Shaw




Episode 4 - On new media art, religious icons re-living through augmented reality, Mogao caves, and hope in COVID times

In the universe of the exhibition “Deep Fakes: Art and Its Double”, curated by Prof. Sarah Kenderdine, we invite you to join us for “In Conversation”, a live video discussion series with the artists, scientists, and collaborators that have been a part of our exhibition.

For the fourth episode of “Deep Fakes - In Conversation”, this coming Thursday, December 16th, at 6 PM CET, we invite you to join us for a discussion between Monica Antohi, Communications lead with EPFL Pavilions and our guest, Prof. Jeffrey Shaw, Chair Professor of Media Art at the City University of Hong Kong and former Dean of the School of Creative Media.

We'll be exploring Jeffrey Shaw's pivotal work The Golden Calf, augmented reality from inception in the 18th century to today, old religious icons transformed and reimagined, spirituality and hope in times of Covid.

Jeffrey Shaw’s creative use of digital media technologies lies at the forefront of virtual and augmented reality, immersive visualization environments, navigable cinematic systems and interactive narrative.
Today we’re discussing a few of his works within the Deep Fakes: art and Its Double exhibition framework, including one of his pivotal new media artworks, The Golden Calf.
The Golden Calf is one of Shaw’s landmark artworks in the domain of participatory, interactive and computer-controlled forms of media art.

Join us for the premiere on December 16th at 6 PM CET for a conversation that expands beyond technology and current events, to bring a new perspective on culture and cultural heritage.
