Future today

New literacy in the field of CNC and 3D technologies within the research of the impact on the artistic community.

The project Future Today with its scope "accelerates" the already started not only Slovak, but the pan-European trend in the digitization of the sphere of education and everyday life. The project monitors the cooperation of science and art, technology and art and its application in education through the created platform. It is largely about using the spontaneous interest of the young generation of students in digital technologies, which have naturally become a part of their lives from an early age (in this context we can talk about a new literacy). Despite the effort to maintain traditions in classical teaching art education and subsequent research, it is our duty to look for logical and progressive connections in the ideas and creation of works.

Based on a more detailed analysis of the positive and negative impacts of such a transformation, it is possible to look for solutions not only for the field of art or art education. It is possible to hit the area of ​​ecology, for example, or paradoxically the deceleration (slowdown) of the whole society with regard to the acquired free time.

In her speech, German politician Andrea Nahles (SPD) recently described the contemporary world as "Turbodigital", which ignores solidarity. In our project, on the contrary, we try to see and look for ways to use the situation in favor of positive development, and not only in the creative field.

The Future Today project has the character of a research task within a creative focus across multiple visual media and involves the cooperation of students at all levels of university study.
