Today BBS previews | The whole view of DNA, explore the future of art and life


"Tim yip: the whole view" has been held in today art museum for nearly two weeks, triggering more and more audience's thoughts on future art and science, future life and spirit and other topics. In this exhibition, artist ye jintian integrated art and science, proposed the concept of "spiritual DNA", and integrated his multi-dimensional discovery and philosophical thinking of time, space and life science into his artistic creation.

In the three-month exhibition period of "Tim yip: the whole view", today art museum, together with Tim yip studio and science and art research center, specially launched the series BBS with the theme of "the life of everything". BBS brings together famous artists, top scientists, science fiction masters and public knowledge from home and abroad. They will start from their respective fields of interest and carry out in-depth discussion and cross-border communication around the theme of "future thoughts and science and art".

【All things come into being】series BBS

The term "the origin of all things" is derived from zhuangzi's theory on qi wu, which means that all things are constantly growing and disappearing at the same time, indicating the endless cycle of life and the endless imagination of mankind for the future. Under the social background of rapid development of science and technology, BBS carries the expectation and exploration of human beings for the future and provides a source of power for forward-looking innovative thinking.

BBS will focus on the areas of science where the fourth industrial revolution (new materials, artificial intelligence, genetic engineering, quantum science, nuclear fusion) is likely to bring huge disruption to the future. Starting from different perspectives of science and art and combining the two levels of sensibility and rationality, this paper comprehensively discusses the future destiny of human beings, scientific development, human ethics and social order, and conducts philosophical thinking.

BBS is not only the stage for the deep integration of science and art, but also the "source of future thoughts". As the spirit of all things, human beings have their own unique imagination and description of the future world. From the earliest period of ignorance, to the present era of science and technology, to the future of the "unimaginable", human exploration of the future has never been absent, here, we through the integration and collision between science and art, expand the boundaries of the future thought frontier.

First BBS -- full view of DNA

DNA is not only the carrier of biological genetic information, but also the indispensable life mechanism of human reproduction. The concept of "spiritual DNA" first put forward by artist ye jintian is not only a multi-dimensional discovery of time, space and life science, but also a philosophical reflection on the imagination of future life. With the rapid development of life science, DNA is not only the key to the starting point of human life, but also determines the future direction of life.

For the first time, academic BBS invited artist ye jintian, Chinese genomics scientist yu jun, director gao peng of today art museum, and was hosted by CAI xiao, founder of science and art research center. At that time, the guests will start from their own scientific field, focusing on the theme of life science, spiritual DNA and the integration of science and art, publish their ideas on the future life, city and society, and whether science and art will become the direction of the development of contemporary art for comprehensive analysis and discussion.

The BBS series is open to the public. You can have a close contact with the leaders and elites in the science and art industry, witness the cross-integration and symbiosis of science, art and humanities at multiple levels and with a large span, and release your infinite imagination for the future. This is not just a simple academic BBS, but a "future-oriented cross-border dialogue" between art and science, which will break your conventional cognition of BBS of art museum.
