Under the theme of Singularity Now, ADAF 2018 explored the upcoming Technological Apocalypse through art, science and technology. More than 20.000 people entered the event horizon, visiting Megaron – The Athens Concert Hall. Moreover, our activities were expanding at the Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos”, Syntagma Metro Station and the Historical Center of Athens.
Event Horizon is the conceivable surface of a black hole, a place where gravity curves space-time so much, there is no escape, not even by light itself. Its core is the singularity, a zero point, where space and time are discontinued and is unknown what exactly happens further. A wormhole? Termination of everything? A new universe through a white hole?
When something enters the event horizon, all physics laws get distorted, while gravity becomes such, that inevitably reaches singularity and from there on…..
Singularity as the notion is associated with infinity, with the unknown, and the beginning of universes, both physical and conceptual, but how does it link to art and technology?
Thank you for sharing with us your tales from this event horizon!
