SCIENCE MEETS FICTION FESTIVAL

Science meets Fiction is a series of events drawing up relationships between sciences and all kinds of utopian thinking. How will the interplay between scientific and technological developments and contributions in the arts pan out? We pose these questions in film presentations, game lounges, talks, discussions and workshops.

The interdisciplinary platform was established in 2018 with the help of Wissensstadt Salzburg (Science City Salzburg) and the cooperation of Salzburg art, cultural and scientific institutions such as FH Salzburg, gold extra, ARGEkultur, DasKino, Robert-Jungk-Bibliothek für Zukunftsfragen, Literaturhaus Salzburg and Arbeiterkammer Salzburg.

Events: 24.9.-6.10. 2018; 23.9.-4.10.2019

Fr., 4.10., 19h ARGEkultur, Studio

“I'm building myself a world...” - Playing and Talking about Games.

Talk withJames Patton and Karl Zechenter (20h). Open at 19h: Indie Games of Cyberpunk genre

… just how I like it: Indie Games concerning politics and technology in ARGEkultur Salzburg with James Patton, producer of Spinnortality: How does politics come into computer games? What are the right rules for a cyberpunk strategy games? What does happen if your Indie game becomes a hit on Steam?

We are curiously anticipating when the upheavals related to Artificial Intelligence will be seen and felt? Likely curious much the same way the intelligent machines around us await the moment, when we will discover that they are already there:. Smart Assistants, Chatbots, Fitness-Tracker are part of our everyday-life. Which rules do we want to develop for our future? How do we want to live?

James Patton, developer of the cyberpunk strategy-game Spinnortality, let's us take the position of the CEO of a global corporation and speaks about the relationship between games and politics, the game balance and rules and his work as independent game developer.

Game Lounge with Spinnortality and Cyberpunk Games, 19h
Talk with James Patton, 20h

Schneller laufen, besser sehen, höher springen, schneller reagieren, so schnell so als ob die Zeit stillstehen würde – ein neuer Konsens über das Menschliche und Maschinelle wird derzeit verhandelt – und das geschieht seit geraumer Zeit auch in Computerspielen. Wir laden sie ein mit uns in und mit Computerspielen einen Blick in die Zukunft zu werfen.
