Art|Science and the New European Bauhaus
We think that while current covid-times are dire, all the elements are present to take up the legacy of the Bauhaus as a new reflexive transdisciplinarity, to push decidedly into uncharted territories and start shaping an as yet unknown future. The SciArt movement has been showing this new direction, with growing strength, since the middle of the last century.

Art versus Société: un défi prométhéen?
Le titan Prométhée est moderne, modernus. Sa vision de l’homme et surtout sa volonté de dérober le feu du ciel pour le donner aux humains, est une métaphore pionnière de notre trinôme contemporain : progres, humanité, liberté. Il n’y a rien de dogmatique, de péremptoire dans ces gestes mythiques, mais on peut y voir plutôt le courage de l’héresie, toujours aussi nécessaire de nos jours. L’art doit s’immerger dans le vortex de nos sociétés actuelles, retenter d’y créer un sens fort, souvent héthé...

Within the Frame: Continuum of the Still Image
We are interested in a range of approaches including those from the past and those from the bleeding edge, using out of the box or homespun tools. Still images of any kind are welcome as our ultimate goal is to not only establish how digital methods are essential to image making, but also to highlight and perhaps remind us that the single image is still powerful and still important now, more than ever.
Biomimetics and shifting languages: computation to aid nature
These concepts are now absolutely crucial as the world warms beyond all previous predictive analysis. The analog of technology may have already reached a complexity apex. The circle would close when we move toward helping the organic world and the concerns therein. Complexity is many layers or parts working together, but when overpacked, it becomes overly complicated.

ISEA 2022 – Possibles
How to draw new Possibles to come, and not just confirming those that are there waiting to be confirmed, experienced and thought, as Possibles that can be brought to existence in our worldview? How to move from the impossible, the fable or the utopia to directly bite into our reality? The Possible is inscribed within the arts, design, sciences and technologies that surround us now and those yet to come.
