[ISEA2000] Paper: JOSE CARLOS MARIATEGUI – ELECTRONIC ART, SCIENCE AND NONSENSE: A SECOND LOOK AT THE UNDERDEVELOPED WORLD

Abstract

The notion of globalization has brought to the underdeveloped countries a way of achieving social welfare. Cyberspace has penetrated in our consciousness with the magic force of a revelation, since new technologies will allow new possibilities in all the disciplines of human creation. The technological differences among the societies are returned as creative differences in the forms of the most sophisticated works of art. Interactive arts and the related fields of complex systems or biotechnology uses advanced technologies, which are only available in few places around the world. This globalization of science and technology is creating differences on the artistic creation among nations, creating an artistic underdevelopment of the countries that could not participate in these scientific developments. We need to fight these differences in a creative way to participate in the future of a better understanding of the artistic and scientific theories in the search of human equality.
