This two-hour event is an interdisciplinary inquiry into the possibilities of art & science collaboration in times of the ongoing climate crisis. What can artists and scientists learn from each other, and how can their respective ways of sensing, processing and knowing be intertwined? What is the role of interdisciplinary collaboration and knowledge production in the ongoing transition towards more sustainable ways of living on the planet?
The event will begin with the screening of Josefina Nelimarkka’s video work that delves into the world fo atmospheric motions and digital cloud formations. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on art & science collaboration and the various ways in which artists and scientists relate to the atmosphere and the ongoing climate crisis. The panelists are professor Timo Vesala, curator Yvonne Billimore, curator Ulla Taipale and artist Josefina Nelimarkka.
After the panel discussion, there will be a possibility to network and meet with others that are interested in collaborating across disciplines. If you have an idea or an existing art & science project that you would like to share or find collaborators for, you can bring it with you.
