The main idea of the Ars Electronica´s European Digital Art and Science Network is to draw a bow between micro- and macro-cosmos of science and digital arts. The catalog The Practice of Art and Science, which was published this year, is offering exactly the insights into this Network, scientific and artistic issues, and scientific research practices in which artists and scientists have been involved.
We talked about the catalog with Andreas J. Hirsch, who coedited it together with Gerfried Stocker. Andreas J. Hirsch is art curator, writer and artistic photographer.
Next to the interview, we are serving also a short audio glipse into the panel discussion “From Encounter to Collaboration – A Quantum Shift in Art & Science?” with Victoria Vesna und Jurij Krpan.
Victoria Vesna is an Artist and Professor at the UCLA Department of Design Media Arts and Director of the Art|Sci center at the School of the Arts and California Nanosystems Institute (CNSI).
Jurij Krpan is the Art Director of the Kapelica Gallery in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The Kapelica Gallery is a space dedicated to artists whose work does not fit into other gallery spaces of Slovenia’s capital. The Gallery is also one of seven European cultural partners in The European Digiatal Art and Science network.
