Ken Goldberg has been featured in SciArt in America, in the article “Wrestling with the Real” by Joe Ferguson. In the article, Ken explains the connections between the online art pieces and reality – and the philosophical questions that connection raises in the audience. They also explore the expansion of culture to the realms of science, and the repercussions this has on culture at large.
Goldberg’s first piece, Telegarden began this exploration of the space between the screen and reality. He has since expanded to Bloom, Mori, and his upcoming pieces Wow and Flutter.
