Workshop “Experimenting, Experiencing, Reflecting – Art and science at work in the public realm”

07 September, 2018 |

Studio Olafur Eliasson, Berlin, 27-28 June 2018

Vittorio Loreto took part to the Workshop organized by Interacting Mind Center of Aarhus and the Olafur Eliasson studio. Here is the general framework: “Today we are witnessing deep crises in trust and social cohesion. What information is trustworthy? How do our perceptions and emotions contribute to what we think and how we act? How do we make sense of, navigate, and participate in society? Environmental and political challenges abound, and these can only be solved through collaboration and innovation – both technological and social. This calls for new forms of thinking and acting. In response to this challenge, we propose developing a strong dialogue between the arts and the sciences that takes experimentation and embodied engagement as its starting points. We aim to create a platform for experimentation with public access to create a unique, shared space for personal reflection with global reach. This approach may also provide access to create a unique, shared space for personal reflection with global reach.
