DATA AESTHETICS DALLA CRISI ECOLOGICA ALLA CREAZIONE ARTISTICA
by Paul D. Miller
Alessio Kolioulis: Nato come DJ, sei oggi professore di musica, artista e scrit- tore. Quali sono i pensatori e le idee che ti hanno maggiormente influenzato nel corso del tempo?
Paul D. Miller: Per me non c’è differenza tra l’idea e una sua manifestazione. Alcuni dei miei pensatori preferiti sono persone che hanno applicato le loro idee ad alcuni campi specifici, come Pitagora, Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz, Duke Ellington, Srinivasa Ramanujan, Bertoldt Brecht, Charles Babbage, Samuel De- lany, Nam Jun Paik, John Cage, Angela Davis, Iannis Xenakis, Cornell West, Char- les e Ray Eames, Yevgeny Zamyatin, Charles Darwin, ma questa è una lista dav- vero parziale. Tuttavia, ciò che li accomuna è un’inclinazione elementare a spin- gersi fin tanto che le idee non si manifestano. Quando lavoro, mi batto nel cerca- re artisti e creativi che siano sempre alla ricerca, e che non accettino mai di confor- marsi a ciò che va di moda. Sono molto attirato da quelle persone che non si la- sciano facilmente contenere. A proposito, non sono nato – così mi hai chiesto – “come DJ”! Ho iniziato principalmente facendo arte e scrivendo.
“Rebels are alive. In past centuries, rebels fought against everything and everyone – today, more than everything and everyone, rebels shine. Yes, rebels shine: reaching for infinity, striving to surpass all limits, to outdo themselves and their own art, character and wit. To shine into infinity is not a small matter: it is the substance of rebels.”

By Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky
Inspired by the everyday stories of the last remaining survivors of the nuclear bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky has created Peace Symphony: 8 Stories.
The idea behind this work came from Miller’s personal interaction with eight Hibakusha (被爆者 Atomic bomb survivors) on Peace Boat’s 83rd Global Voyage (Peace Boat is an international non-governmental and non-profit organization that works to promote peace, human rights, equal and sustainable development and respect for the environment) where Miller recently served as a guest educator and artist-in-residence.
