ABSTRACT

This study deals with the aspects of conflicts in the fusion of art and the converging technologies such as nano and biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science. Art projects based on converging technologies, for example, Nanoart or Bioart will inevitably cause conflicts in the process of fusion of different technologies and art, including ethical conflicts between science and art, and even conflicts between ethics and art. This paper first deals with the collision problems of art projects in science laboratories, and then examines the conflicts between viewers and the art projects based on converging technologies in so-called white cubes such as art museum and gallery. From these approaches, we can find the interventions corresponding to the exercise of power derived from the process of fusion between the scientific and the art world, and the inconsistent contradictions and tensions from it. What is particularly noteworthy here is that the conflicts arising from the fusion of art and science can not be completely overcome in reality, although the search for ethics to overcome it through mutual criticism continues. Paradoxically, in the era where anything can be converged, art projects based on converging technologies reveal a tough society that leads to constant conflicts. Therefore, art projects based on converging technologies will be suggested not as a completed work of art but as an art from the point of being a ‘pro-ject’ presented to us.
