About

Sensorium Festival is workshops, talks and performances bridging the fields of computational art, design and performance.

Building on Jack Burnham’s 1968 essay “System Aesthetics”, we will investigate the shift from “Homo Faber” (Man the Maker) to “Homo Arbiter Formae” (Man the Maker of Aesthetic Decisions).

We invite you to explore the system behind the animations you see running in the background and make your own aesthetic decisions using sliders like this (scroll down for more):
