Roy Ascott is a british artist and theorist. In the 1960s he established the radical Groundcourse, a highly innovative and rather unorthodox teaching method at Ealing Art College in London. The groundcourse aimed to expand its students conciousness through challenges, games and excercises based on cybernatic theory in order to disrupt their creative preconceptions on art. Ascott himself is working in interactive electronic and telematic art. Studying quantum physics and holonomic brain theory he came up with the term moist media to describe the emerging science of biomechatronics. Predicting the combination of biological and thechnological systems for the future he proclaims the end to arts preoccupation with the body. In an interview with Keith Stuart he says about his current practical projects: My central interest has been in biophotonic processes, concerning the quantum coherence of organisms. Within my field of specualtive research, theory is practice.
