Conference in Wrocław: What can art do for science?

16th Media Art Biennale WRO 2015 TEST EXPOSURE!

The conference is curated by Ryszard W. Kluszczyński. The conference
will be interpreted to Polish and English.

What can art do for science?

The thesis that art has significantly transformed as a result of its
contacts with science is no longer doubted. Indeed, a new area of
artistic practices has appeared, known as Art&Science, SciArt or
art at science. The changes to which art succumbed in effect of its
closer relations with science took place in all art dimensions and
aspects, both in terms of the materials and instruments used, as well
as the methods applied in the artistic processes, in the created
forms, the subject matter, as well as the most fundamental aesthetic
issues, such as the status of the creative process, the concept of the
work of art or the structure and the nature of the viewer’s experience.

Art research has been keeping up with the developments above,
progressing with ever greater force and reaching in their diversity
beyond the issues that art has been traditionally dealing with. Thus
artists are now entering domains once strictly reserved to science.
The number of such projects, their nature and scope, as well we their
results and consequences provoke questions not only about what science
has given art, but also what art can give science.
