Tu.ukz: right artist of the wrong new digital art

Arthur Machado, also known as Tu.ukz, is a 23 year old artist from Amazonia, Brazil. He started doing art when he was 17, drawing and painting. When he was 20 he discovered digital art. «It is taking a while – he says – until people admit computer art as art. But it’s normal, people need time to get used to innovation.

FutureEverything celebrated its 20th anniversary. For the last two decades the festival has brought people together to imagine, shape and question the vision of a truly participatory society. A belief in the emancipatory and creative potential of new technologies runs throughout digital culture. It is found both in the open source community and in the rhetoric of Silicon Valley start-ups. In recent years, the contradictions in this vision have come to the surface. The digital age has brought a collision of positives and negatives. This year was an ideal opportunity for FutureEverything to hit pause on its headlong rush into the future, to reflect on the consequences of the past decades and the prospects for the decades to come.
