Welcome

How and why do artists engage with science? Why are scientists interested in artistic representations of their work? What new forms of public access are created when scientists open their laboratories to artists?
How might such collaborations tackle the ethical and political dimensions of complex problems?

Welcome to the website of an international, collaborative research project investigating the emergence of new artist-scientist collaborations.  In this ethnographic study of five contemporary collaborative projects in the US the UK, Europe and Australia involving diverse groups of scientists and artists, we are exploring the institutional, political, epistemic and technological matrices that allow these interfaces to emerge and that shape their development and wider impact.

This collaborative project is jointly funded by the US National Science Foundation and the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council.
