While the act of creation sounds like a progressive concept today, it has been mentioned a lot in recent years with the disruption it brings. As human beings continue to produce and create for their own benefit, they also go on taking from nature and destroying what is natural. Art and its creation process is no exception. Moderated by the social innovation platform İmece, The Art of Green Living: Curation of a Green Footprint panel will focus on sustainability, and discuss the importance and subtleties of creating a green footprint with creators and artists. İmece Lab manager Zeynep Çelik, artist Meltem Şahin and the artist Elmas Deniz, who examines the intersections between economy and nature in her works, will focus on the means of embracing a more sustainable approach in production, and discovering paths to more sustainable art.

In addition to the panels, Digilogue Summit will also host three different masterclasses during its two day program at Zorlu PSM. In his “Fun Machine Learning” masterclass, panelist Andreas Refsgaard will express how machine learning has become an integral part of artistic practices, with the endless creative possibilities and indispensable opportunities that these tools and techniques present. Another masterclass will be held by the SALT team, detailing the whole course of the “Performance Archive” project, carried out within the scope of SALT's research on Turkish art history, from idea to implementation and the role of technology in this process.

Life of the world’s entire population on a sci-fi safari in a fictional city, where 10 billion people have surrendered the rest of the world to a global wilderness, will be examined.

“The Blue Dot” will discuss speculations on the ecological and epistemological networks woven around the internet, while representing a real-time marker of interaction between users and digital servers. Also throughout the film, planet Earth and its oceans will be presented as a visual metaphor for the internet.

After a long-term research process and experimental films, the short film “Models for Environmental Literacy” will speculatively demonstrate how artificial intelligence can have an alternative perception of the environment.
