Art, Science, and Technology
Art and Science is a seminar and studio course on science-inspired art practices. We survey and discuss cutting-edge art-science theory, practice, and institutions in seminar. In studio, we examine art-science topics in hands-on experiments. Fall 2015, the themes of wonder, walking and water charted our course through the vast territory of art and science intersections. Wonder is a state of mind: both art and science can inspire curiosity, confusion, surprise, and conversation.Walking is a deceptively simple subject that has inspired postmodern dance, procedural performance, audio and video tours and installation. The third theme, water, is a “magic molecule” connecting the body to the land, culture to nature, and economics to the environment.
