From the conference report:
Sue Golding, brought together contemporary art with continental philosophy in a lecture/installation/poetic, entitled: “Tactile Philosophy: From Ars Scientifica to Ars Erotica”. In absolute darkness, with her voice amplified through a microphone, she explored the event of synthetic life (creating life in a laboratory) on aesthetics, sensuality and science. The audience was encouraged to visualize or construct through listening, a philosophical narrative that would amalgamate the speaker’s/author’s assertions with one’s own resonances – and fears – of what it means to be human, sensuous and ‘alive’ in our digital, mediated age.
