„European Digital Art and Science Network“ is the title of launched initiative by Ars Electronica, which aims to combine scientific topics with creative and innovative approaches to digital art. Art&Science project enables to the artists to get engaged in the scientific work at ESA, ESO or CERN, which are scientific mentoring institutions, and are representing Europe’s peak in scientific research. The Ars Electronica Futurelab is providing state-of-the-art technical production possibilities in a trans disciplinary discourse. And in the end, seven European cultural partners (Center for the promotion of science, RS – DIG Gallery, SK – Zaragoza City of Knowledge Foundation, ES – Kapelica Gallery / Kersnikova, SI – GV Art, UK – Laboral, ES – Science Gallery, IE) are representing strong and various European cultural- and artistic positions. All these institutions are consisting a big manifold called „European Digital Art and Science Network“.
In the first edition of ARS Radio we are presenting two artists-in-residence within the 2016 art&science@ESA Open Call – Irish media artist Aoife van Linden Tol with her spectacular explosive performance called Star Storm, and American kinetic artist and roboticist Sarah Petkus with her inventive project: The Wandering Artist.
