Memo Akten – Keynote
On Thursday night, Memo Akten will welcome you to the festival and give an inspiring opening keynote: a spiritual start of the festival!
Memo Akten is an artist, researcher and philomath from Istanbul, Turkey, working with computation as a medium to explore the collisions between nature, science, technology, ethics, ritual, tradition and religion. He is currently pursuing a PhD at Goldsmiths in London on machine learning and expressive human-machine interaction, to enable collaborative creativity between humans and machines.
