Αποκάλυψη translates as a revelation of God’s will about the end of the world. Before the modern era, ‘apocalypse’ meant doomsday. Post-modern meaning was shifted to the imminent existence of life shaped by disasters. In fiction, the apocalypse relates to the collapse of civilisation caused by wars, climate changes, earthquakes, pandemics. An apocalyptic event reverses civilisation control over nature into the civilisation under the control of nature. The domains of science and engineering that will adapt to a post-apocalyptic world are those whose status was marginal in the former civilisation.

Selected photographs of artworks will be

  • exhibited at the virtual exhibition open to general public
  • presented at the “Post-Apocalyptic Computing” Workshop
  • included in the book “Post-Apocalyptic Computing” (World Scientific, 2023).

We encourage provocative art works at the edge of arts, science, philosophy, engineering.
