  •  (Long paper)

    Keywords: Hybrid art, Artscience, Bioart, Installation, Generative Art, Computational Creativity, Interactive Arts.

    I would highlight one more parameter encountered in art: creative distinctiveness and creation of a “trademark”, “personal style”. This is the use of a common visual element or theme that makes the artist and the art recognizable, distinguishable. A “trademark” can also be created for substantive or commercial reasons. The question is: to what extent do we see this “trademark” in technological art and hybrid art approaches? Works by Eduardo Kac, Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Thomas Feuerstein, Paul Vanouse, Dmitry Gelfand and Evelina Domnitch, Julius Popp, Timo Toots are discussed.
