The Science New WaveI Festival (XVI edition) takes place in New York from October 20-27, 2023. 

SNW XVI Festival Theme: (art)ificial

(art)ificial explores the art of the human while it acknowledges the limits of the human and the violence of its diverse art forms. What are the many forms of artificiality we humans conduct? (art)ificial is not about the artificial ‘intelligent’ simulations but the actual doings of human – to nature and to ourselves. By providing a counter-narrative to the assumed connotation that artificial entails under the very present wave of artificial intelligence, this year’s film festival highlights the vast range of artificial modes of creation, including human intervention, intrusion of land, as well as the incoming technologies humanity develops with and through machines to highlight the very presence of the human in affected ecosystems.
