Art and Science as co-conspirators in the service and disservice of humanity
University of Technology, Canada
Developments in the arts, technology and science are presented in tandem as powerful forces of social change, with serious unresolved issues in their motivation, oversight, undersight, and mass collective motion. Manipulative techniques in music which are understood scientifically and applied in mass culture, are presented alongside technological innovations used to either encourage or stifle open public debate and political discourse. Moral and amoral activities in science and art are presented with historical examples and their profound effect on human society.
