A Framework for the Integration of Art & Science

The ideas the author expresses here intend to codify the types of creative expression that may lead to the integration of art with science in the near future. The time has come for the emergence of a new science in which creative expressiveness is part of the research agenda and this essay aims at inoculating scientists with the spirit of art, and artists with the spirit of science.

From Automata to Robotics

International Workshop. Lisbon, March 28-29, 2019 Call For Papers Bald, and with a pretty face, the robot Sophia came into our lives. Derived from science fiction literature, films and theatre (R.U.R robot of Čapek), humanoids are now a reality. By mimicking the gestures, behaviour, the way of speaking and interactions of humans, robots, androids, cyborgs, avatars as avant-garde of technology still cause surprise and evoke uncanny reactions. They have deep roots in ancient self-moving a...

MATTER(S) matter(s): Bridging Research in the Arts and Sciences

With their shared interests in materiality and topical issues—the dual “matters” invoked in the exhibition title—the artists in the exhibition reveal an “epistemological turn” in the arts and sciences, focusing on how knowledge is produced and how the process of production inflects meaning and interpretation. This major presentation highlights how artists and scientists work together to imagine the future, today.

The Leonardo Convening

The Leonardo Convening is the culminating event of our 50th anniversary. The event’s aim is to initiate a challenging, vital network-wide experience. The event is designed to bring together attendees from diverse disciplines and experiences.

Towards a Semi-Living Avatar. Investigating the Interface Body-Smart Machines in Stelarc’s Work

Crossing the boundaries from Cyberpunk Fiction to Reality, Stelarc’s work moves gradually towards the realization of a vision: To investigate the interface between the actual and the virtual world, with the body acting seamlessly in mixed realities, and with an intelligent avatar that performs in the real world, with optical density and tactile experience. This idea, seems to permeate his experimentations with engineering, robotic and digital technology, and with artificial intelligence and biot...

Comunicare la scienza tra arte, scienza e tecnologia

Riflessioni in forma di dialogo sulla comunicazione della scienza, di come "raccontarla” efficacemente e sul possibile ruolo dell'arte, sulle relazioni tra arte e scienza, sui pubblici e sulla necessità di un discorso interdisciplinare. Il mondo della ricerca artistica può fornire ulteriori stimoli per alimentare tale discussione? In che modo l'arte può interagire con la comunicazione della scienza?
