Abstract (English)

Ditta introduces Back as a 21st century Wizard of Oz, mixing science and art in a way that humanises technology. Langhill employs the concept of “indwelling” to explain the artist's creative application of scientific knowledge. In an interview with Ditta, Back describes his influences, intentions and attitudes towards art/science. Includes brief descriptions of works in the exhibition. Biographical notes. 7 bibl. ref.
