Private Investigations. Research, Acquisition and Processing of Knowledge in Contemporary Art Practices. November 10, 2005 - February 3, 2006 - Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen, Stadtturmgalerie, Kunstpavillon, Innsbruck, Austria. An exhibition and a series of discussions curated by Andrei Siclodi and Ingeborg Erhart in cooperation with the Jan van Eyck Academie Amsterdam. "Private Investigations is a research project on contemporary art practices that make use of various individual (non-scientific) research methods and strategies in order to acquire information and to process it to knowledge bases, which may then be used as the material of the artistic work itself. Since these strategies and methods are fairly common in the artistic research and production in the institutional context of residency and postgraduate programmes, the project also intends to analyse these specific working conditions. The project is structured as a series of residencies, exhibitions and symposia, screenings and presentations, held at different locations in Central and South-Eastern Europe over the next two years."

Bloom the acoustic reorganisation of limp picture-streams thanks to Peter Castine and John de Kron, loosening us from the coincidence of recognisable pictorial politics. Surpassingly determined, Joseph's concluding discussion abducts our knowledge to join the celebratory reception at art_science, from 7 pm on. Guy Ben-Ary & Philip Gamblen have been artists in resident in SymbioticA - the Art and Science Collaborative Research Lab. SymbioticA is a research laboratory dedicated to the exploration from an artistic perspective of scientific knowledge in general, and biological technologies in particular. It is located in The School of Anatomy & Human Biology at The University of Western Australia. They are involved in the development of three Bioart related projects: one of them is "MEART" the semi living artist" () where they explore the possibilities, implications and ethics of creating semi living entities that might have emergent behavior. The other two are currently under development. "The living Screen" is an exploration of the interface between Film Theory and BioArt and a project titled "Mother" where we look at the ossibilities of creating an entity that involved symbiotic relationship between a bacteria and a robot. In their presentation Guy & Philip will exhibit documentation of these projects and present and talk about the challenges of developing Bioart and A-Life projects, The work with a new artistic pallet of cells and electronics and try to raise issues concerning these newly created entities that further challenge our perceptions and our relations towards notions of life."

BioArt and Public Sphere Conference A Project, Research, and Conference Initiative October 17, 2005 - University of California, Irvine, USA "This initiative aims to bring together artists, biologists, and science studies scholars, to address a broad range of questions about science in the public sphere. The list of possible research domains to be investigated includes, but is not limited to, genomics, tissue engineering, genetic engineering and stem cell research. 1. What types of models of interdisciplinary engagement might facilitate rich, well-informed public participation in scientific discourse? 2. How do we go beyond the "demo" model often used by science museums and approach the subject matter in an experiential hands-on way that allows for failure, redirection of research questions and the promotion of agency towards an area that is usually reserved for the expert community? 3. What types of epistemological questions emerge at the intersection of biology, art, and the public sphere? How would an exchange mutually benefit the research areas of each discipline? Under which umbrella could research collaborations of this kind be supported?" The participants are: Sujatha Byravan, SymbioticA, Paul Rabinow, Jens Hauser, Claire Pentecost, Michael Dorsey, Tau-Mu Yi, Charis Thompson, Abha Sur, Gabriella Coleman, Jenny Reardon, Faith Wilding, and Rachel Mayeri.

VSMM 2005 11th international conference on Virtual Systems and Multimedia October 3-6, 2005 - Ghent, Belgium

Work Spaces in Art, Science and Business September 30 - October 1, 2005 - Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart, Germany. "The concept of work spaces in art, science and business has undergone a fundamental shift in the past few decades, especially in the past ten years. This can be traced to the incredible progress and further developments in the new technologies area. Since the 1990s, the workplace is no longer a 'physical space' but is increasingly developing into a virtual space in which the boundaries between art, science and business appear to be dissolving. The symposium dedicates itself to the question of how artists, managers and scientists presently design their workspaces. According to which criteria take precedence and how does the given goal and work method influence the work environment; or what influence does the space have on the practice of art? In the symposium, artists, sociologists, jurists, physicists, architects, managers and engineers will address with these various influences. Speakers are Dominique Billier, sociologist, Nancy; Paul Devautour, artist, Bourges; Jean-Marie Dubois, physicist, Nancy; Anastasia Fillippoupoliti, sociologist, Vienna; Thomas Froehlicher, economist, Nancy; Dirk Heitmann, engineer, Hamburg; Benjamin Joly, jurist, Paris; Yves Meert, manager, Luxemburg; Olivier Menanteau, artist, Paris/Berlin; Annett Zinsmeister, architect, Berlin." The symposium was initiated by Dominique Billier, Lecturer at the Graduate School of Management, ICN Nancy and guest of the art, science & business program in 2005. In cooperation with the Graduate School of Management, ICN Nancy.

Leonardo/ISAST, the Database for Virtual Art, Banff New Media Institute, and UNESCO DigiArts are collaborating to produce the first international art history conference covering art and new media, art and technology, art-science interaction, and the history of media as pertinent to contemporary art."

Rules of Engagement Science and art conference September 5-7, 2005 - University of York, York, UK "Art and science each hold the allure of a powerful cultural 'other'. Artists wish to appropriate science, scientists to harness art, for the benefit of their own practices. To what extent can this desire be collaborative or mutually beneficial? This provocative conference - a melting pot of talks, events, performances and debate - challenges the serene vision of art and science as a warm, fuzzy continuum and asks instead what really happens when different perspectives, expectations, interests and languages converge. When artists are natural transgressors and scientists trained to be cautious, are there risks as well as benefits? What happens when science is taken out of the lab, away from its safety procedures and cultural assumptions? Do artists have any responsibility towards scientific data, how it is manipulated and presented? In its interplay with science, is art contributing to knowledge, creating meaning or on a quest to change the world? In this collision of politics, ethics and imagination - spanning ecology, bioscience and deep space - what are the Rules of Engagement?

Critical Computing - Between Sense and Sensibility August 20-24, 2005, The Fourth Decennial Aarhus Conference, Aarhus, Denmark. Continuing the tradition from the conferences in 1975, 1985 and 1995, it is the aim of the fourth Aarhus conference to provide a forum for the exploration and development of new perspectives for critical computing. As information technology reaches out from the workplace to virtually all aspects of human life, the scope of critical IT research expands from a focus on designing computer support for quality of working life to new frontiers. These frontiers include the home, leisure time, citizen services, public spaces as well as the workplace. We face new challenges for technology support and new pitfalls regarding the ways in which people sense and form meaningful environments. Critical Computing is a multi-disciplinary conference in participatory design, interaction design, CSCW, social computing, digital art and entertainment addressed from a variety of disciplines like computer science, sociology, psychology, ethnography, architecture, and aesthetics.

Arts and Science in the Information Society July 7-10, 2005 - Ecole Nationale Superieure de Techniques Avancees (ENSTA), Paris, France Free Satellite Conference of FIS2005 "Following the best tradition of the Renaissance and the age of Enlightenment, a Thematic Event of the World Summit on the Information Society is proposed that would gather Scientists, Scholars, Artists, Governements Representatives, Diplomats, Civil Society Activists as well as the general public to debate about the challenges of communicating Arts and Sciences content within the Information Society, and in particular what are the impacts and benefits of the new computer technologies. Concerning Access to Scientific knowledge, the event is going to focus on two aspects: Open Access to scientific litterature and data, Open Access to online courses The question of Access to Arts and the Humanities is going to be discussed not only in terms of Open Access to academic litterture and courses in those fields, but also concerning the access to the artists, in particular concerning Digital Arts, the Arts that are born from the technological evolution that allows the very existence of the Information Society, and which are by essence the expression of the new world that is being built. Are going to be also discussed selected issues concerning the technological and software context as well as the legal context that should allow the Information Society to evolve towards a Knowledge Society of Shared Knowledge.

Das Symposium thematisiert Gestaltungen und Visualisierungen in den Natur-, Technik- und Geisteswissenschaften. Die Bebilderung von abstrakten Inhalten, komplexen Zusammenhängen und theoretischen Konstruktionen und ihre Verbreitung in den Massenmedien können dazu beitragen, wissenschaftliche Themen und Konzepte zu vermitteln und verständlich zu machen. Häufig aber dienen Ästhetisierungen allein der Popularisierung und der Werbung für eine bestimmte Forschungsrichtung. Manche Forschenden beanspruchen sogar das Label 'Kunst'. Das Symposium fragt nach den Funktionen und Bedeutungen von wissenschaftlichen Visualisierungen im Zeitalter digitaler, bildgebender Verfahren.

Neuroaesthetics May 20-21, 2005 - Goldsmiths College, University of London, Great Britain "Art is incrasingly bound up with knowledge production and information distribution. As part of this trend, artists have begun to investigate the brain and neuroaesthetics is a means by which they are doing it. Neuroaesthetics is a dynamic process through which questions of neuroscience are made "ready-mades". Concepts such as sensation, perception, memory and recently networks, plasticity and sampling operate within philosophical, cultural, sociological, psychological, historical and economic milieus and are currently inciting artistic experimentation. Neuroaesthtetics descries new conditions for the production of a new population of objects, object relations and non-objects which in the end can be differentially sampled by the plastic brain providing a means by which culture may play a role in sculpting neural networks. As such, the importance of art in larger bio-political contexts should not be overlooked." Convened by Warren Neidich ACE-AHRB fellow at Goldsmiths College and Carlie Gere. Plenary speakers are: Paul Bachy-Rita, Diedrich Diedrichsen, Olafur Eliasson, Joseph Kosuth, Sarat Maharaj, Brian Massumi, Paul Miller aka DJ Spooky, Marcos Novak, Barbara Maria Stafford.

Future and Art between Codes and Genes May 12, 2005 - Panel discussion within the entermultimediale 2 - Institut francais de Prague, Czech Republic. Artificial life, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, bioinformatics, memetics, nanotechnology - these are the domains that blur the differences between biology and technology. The difference between what we consider alive and the not alive, natural and artificial, disappears. The notion of the evolution changes in order to integrate these processes and materials that are not organic. Robots interacting in groups, machines capable to learn, computer viruses and other programs disclose the new dimensions of life. These and other forms of non-organic living systems have become a symptom of the fact that biology and technology create a symbiotic relationship. Crucial to the discussion are the generative and creative processes that make up the whole new microcosm or "artificial" ecosystem of autonomous agents, cellular automata, and other software and hardware that are evolving in a time when the same dynamics apply in the field of genetics. What is the relationship of evolution and emergence - the two most significant concepts in the last two centuries? Where do the experiments and the search for new forms of life as well as the symbiosis of the organic and the non-organic lead us? What are the prospects of the world in which the difference between codes and genes will dissapear? And what is the role of art in these processes?

In Anknüpfung an die grundlegende Kritik des klassischen Repräsentationsbegriffs der Wissenschaftsphilosophie, mit dem eine theoretische Abbildung einer wie immer vorgefundenen Wirklichkeit angenommen wurde, werden in der Konferenz die multi- und intermedialen Aspekte von Wissenserzeugung und ihrer Popularisierung untersucht."

GENAU! A symposium on art and science. March 18-19, 2005, Institute for Transdisciplinarity (Y)/Hochschule der Künste, Bern, Switzerland. "Accuracy" ("Genauigkeit") is a quality characteristic not only in the sciences but also in the arts and their research. However it should be discussed what "accurate" means in the arts and what is addressed in the sciences by the same term. The Institute for Transdisciplinarity of the Hochschule der Künste Bern (HKB), Switzerland, organized a Symposium where artists, musicians, restorers, journalists, scientists and people from the theatre were discussing about harmonies and dissonances in the scientific and artistic concepts of "accuracy".

Calculating Images: Representation by Algorithm in Science and Art March 4-5, 2005 - Interdisciplinary Humanities Center in Santa Barbara, USA "This conference investigates the digital image at the interstice of art and the sciences. Since the beginning of the 1990s, when researchers focused on digital photography, the digital image has not found the attention it deserves. We therefore want to begin with a series of basic questions that place the digital image in the context of other digital and non-digital imaging technologies. What does it mean to speak of images in the digital age? How does the digital image correspond to other technical images, such as photography and film? Does the digital image represent an absolute break in the history of the (technical) image, or should we regard it, on the contrary, as the culmination of that history? These are some of the questions that will introduce our discussions."

mentalimages \\ from imagination to neurology International\media\award for science and art\2005. SWR and ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany. "New developments in brain research have ignited world wide debate on the question of free will. The source of contention: new imaging technologies, designed to render the process of human thought visible. The human brain is a fascinating cosmos, a highly complex organ and a subject that is explored in every field of science. The \\international\media\award\ for science and art is an interdisciplinary event and, as such, invites both artists and scientists alike to explore the questions: how do the images inside our heads work? And how do images of the insides of our heads work?"


Kunst und Wissenschaft (Art and Science) May 5-7, 2004 - Forum for interdisciplinary Studies, Muthesius-Hochschule für Kunst und Gestaltung Kiel, Germany

Art, The Body, and Biotechnology July 7-12, 2004 - Section in: 8th Congress of the International Association for Semiotic Studies (IASS), Lyon, France. Round Table Discussion. "How has biotechnology transformed conceptions of the body and other natural organisms? How have genetic engineering techniques that manipulate biological bodies altered our conception of nature and culture? Bio-(tech) art, an emerging art form, encompassing genetic art, transgenic art, clone art, cell art and other genres, addresses these issues in challenging ways. Eradicating the separation between art and life, such "live" art practices effectively serves to decode the manner in which art and (bio)technology operate as cultural signs. In this session, we wish to examine the semiotic and epistemological dimensions of the new (micro)biological bodies produced by biotech art and science, and particularly how (genetic and cultural) codes relate to: cultural inscriptions of the body; the relation between nature and culture and its affect on the search for what Rheinberger calls 'Begrifflichkeit'; traditional aesthetics and art discourse; theories of post-structuralism, post-phenomenology, post-humanism and to post-modern theories of the "cyborg" as a transcending condition of fluidity, of open-endedness, and slipping boundaries."

Arte-Scienza. Presente continuo: I segni della civiltà tra espressione artistica, comunicazione e tecnologia (Art-Science. Continuous Present: The signs of civilization between artistic expression, communication and technology). September 18-25, 2004 - Goethe-Institute Rome and the Teatro Ambra Jovinelli, Italy. Two institutions, Goethe-Institute Rome and Centro Ricerche Musicali, organized the meeting that took place in the Goethe-Institute Rome and the Teatro Ambra Jovinelli. Part of the event was the interdisciplinary symposium "Tras_form_azione" ("Trans_form_a(c)tion) on September 24-25, 2004: "The evolution of communication systems, the access to interdisciplinary codes, the development of computer science and interactive networks have been responsible over the past few years for a profound transformation in the forms of artistic creation and, more generally, in culture. Science increasingly contributes to the support of this new dimension, with its forms of cognitive and technological application of perceptive phenomena. Which sciences are closer to and interactive with the arts? Is there a common planning feature shared by Art and Science? Our intention is that this event, should provide the answer to these questions and investigate the criteria which link Art and Science and their capacity for affecting social transformations."

ART & BIOtech October 5-8, 2004 - Musee d'Art Contemporain de Montreal, Canada "Biotechnologies announce the emergence of major breakthroughs and fresh insights into various fields of knowledge: new medical treatments, agricultural improvements, the mapping of the genomes of various species, the customized reconfiguration of bodies. Such potent promises are both fascinating and disquieting, raising many uncertainties and posing questions difficult to resolve. During this colloquium, international theorists and artists will consider such issues by presenting their research and artworks. Several themes will be explored: intersections of biology, aesthetics and ethics; artificial life; genetic art and hybrid organisms; representational and critical strategies.

inVISIBLE art_science International\media\art\award\2004. October 29, 2004 - SWR and ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany. "As the selection of the \\international\media\art\award 2004 winners has concluded now, the awarding of the prizes has been scheduled for the 29th of October, this year's location being the E-Werk in Baden-Baden. In October the "50 Best" will be broadcast on SUEDWEST TV and Swiss TV, as well as on ARTE, 3 sat and EINS Festival.

inVISIBLE. Algorithms as interfaces between art and science October 30-31, 2004 - ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany. "The symposium will examine the influence exerted on perception by algorithms as interfaces between art and science. Why do we recognise something we can designate in the structure of systematically arranged nanoparticles; what are the grounds for such an assessment? How is the algorithmic revolution changing the image of science and art? In short, it is a question of what we really see and hear, and what we always thought we were seeing and hearing."

ISAMA/CTI 2004 Fifth Interdisciplinary Conference of The International Society of The Arts, Mathematics, and Architecture. June 15-19, 2004 - De Paul University, Chicago, USA. "The main purpose of ISAMA/CTI 2004 is to bring together persons interested in relating mathematics with the arts and architecture. This includes teachers, architects, artists, mathematicians, scientists, and engineers. As in previous conferences, the objective is to share information and discuss common interests. We have seen that new ideas and partnerships emerge which can enrich interdisciplinary education. In particular, we believe it is important to begin interdisciplinary education at an early age so one component of ISAMA/CTI 2004 will be teacher workshops for K-12 in addition to college level courses."

VSMM 2004 10th international conference on Virtual Systems and Multimedia. November 17-19, 2004 - Softopia, Ogaki, Japan.

Conversation: Enacting new Synergies in Arts and Sciences June 23-26, 2004 - University Paris 8 and Cité Internationale Universitaire, Paris, France. 3rd SLS European Conference. "The conference theme addressed a series of topics designed to promote intensive exchanges between scholars from a wide variety of countries working in very different disciplines, both in the humanities and in science. In order to stimulate on-going productive conversation between participants, the work of the conference was organized into a number of streams. Each stream occupied more than one workshop and employed a variety of formats, including "invited symposia" with more extended presentations and respondents, round-table discussions, and the traditional 3- or 4-paper format." Discussed topics were: Biotechnology, Complexity in art and science, Forgotten ancestors of significance to the interdisciplinary field of literature, art and science (Poincaré, Whitehead, I.A. Richards, Bachelard...), Performative science, Rhetoric of science, Standardization, Translating between disciplines: interdisciplinary borrowings; the migration of models from one discipline to another, Thought experiments, Visualization technologies, Understanding social/technical life, Between two cultures: medicine and literature; chemistry and literature, etc. This stream aims at promoting a thematic interest which has always been part of SLS in the U.S.A. but which was perhaps under-represented in previous SLS Europe conferences.

HyperKult 12: analog digital. Kunst und Wissenschaft zwischen Messen und Zählen (analogue digital. Art and Science between Measuring and Counting) July, 24-26, 2003 - University of Lüneburg, Germany "Obwohl Computer keineswegs nur Rechnen oder Zählen, wird ihr Einsatz noch immer mit dem Schlachtruf 'Digital' gekennzeichnet - im Gegensatz zum bloß "Analogen" früherer Medientechnik. Was damit gemeint ist, bleibt freilich unklar, es scheint sogar immer unklarer zu werden. Die Verwirrungen reichen von sensorischen Zuschreibungen wie dem "warmen Klang des Röhrenverstärkers" gegenüber dem 'kalten Klang der CD' bis zu Grundlagenaussagen wie 'Im Computer sind alles letztlich nur Nullen und Einsen.' Wer damit arbeitet, kann diese schnellen Zuschreibungen freilich nicht wiederfinden. Da geht es mehr um präzise Kopierarbeit, einheitliche Speichermedien oder programmierte Bearbeitung."

The Joint Meeting of ISAMA 2003 and the 6th Annual Bridges Conference.

ArtSci2002: New Dimensions in Collaboration December 6-8 2002 - American Museum of Natural History and the CUNY Graduate Center, New York City, USA. A public symposium organized by Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI). "Laser beams and superstrings, generative systems and AI, X-rays and MRIs. From the macro to the micro, from the everyday to the exceptional, the legacy of Albert Einstein permeates this century through the tools we use, the research being conducted in numerous fields, and the continuing search for our place in the cosmos. Alongside scientists, technologists and humanists, artists have probed and responded to the post-Einsteinian landscape for nearly a century. From installations that seem to react to the pull of invisible forces to the altered landscapes and mindscapes of VR, artists continue to push the limits of available technology, stretching and questioning our notions of perception, dimension, and time."

"How can the discoveries of scientific research and the powerful metaphors of art combine to impact society at large? Some artists and scientists are exploring the promise of art-sci collaborative projects. This third international symposium organized by Art and Science Collaboration, Inc. (ASCI) will feature multimedia presentations on extraordinary collaborative projects involving artists and scientists, ranging from photographs rendered in hybrid grass, and a musical score based on brain activity, to sculpture grown from living tissue, and brainwaves transmitted via the Internet. The presenters will discuss the opportunities and pitfalls of collaborating across disciplines and invite questions from the audience. ArtSci2001 is a co-production of ASCI and the Continuing Education & Public Programs and Science Research and Special Projects departments of The Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY) and was made possible through the generous support of The Rockefeller Foundation and AT&T, as well as our media sponsors: Art Byte magazine, Leonardo Journal and Nature magazine."

Art + Science Conference ... took place at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Study and Conference Center at Lake Como, Italy, in November 2001. It was a rare event, based on the proposition: “To bring together a group of artists and scientists to explore the creative process, examine the interface between art and science and establish a foundation for future cooperation and exchange in the 21st century.”

art as science - science as art September 12-16, 2001 - Wandelhalle der Gemäldegalerie, Kulturforum am Matthaeikirchplatz, Berlin, Germany. The project "Art as Science - Science as Art" presented artists whose thematic interests include the new relations between art and science. On the threshold to the 21st century, if it still wants to be taken seriously, art must move on from the programme of the modern age, which has become an art pour l'art of liberation. A symposium of the same name, took place within the context of the "Wissenschaftssommer 2001", opened the project "Art as Science - Science as Art" as a prologue. It was continued by the series "WissensKünste" (interdisciplinary discussions with artists and scientists) initiated by the Berlin Zentrum für Literaturforschung (Centre for Literary Research) at the Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin from October 2001-winter 2004. In addition, preparations are made for an individual exhibition of works by the English artist Paul Etienne Lincoln, who lives in New York. The finale of the project was planned to be a large-scale "Exhibition of Art and Science" in 2004.


Performative Sites : Intersecting Art, Technology, and the body. Pennsylvania State University - October 2000.

Sciences of the Interface May 18-21, 2000 - Center for Art and Media (ZKM), Karlsruhe, Germany. An international symposium on the historical, philosophical, mathematical, physical, biological, social, artistic and technical aspects of the interface. In honor of the 60th birthday of Otto E. Rössler. "As is clear, the science of the interface is at the epicenter of Rössler's research. Besides his pioneering contributions in systems theory and chaos, he has concentrated his recent work in the area he calls endophysics where the interface between human mind and the rest of the world plays the central role. Rössler's work has also inspired and provoked numerous scientists and media theorists to reconsider the cartesian cut - interfaces that can be either located or not!"

sciart symposium September 13-14, 2000 - Royal Geographical Society, London, UK.

What's in a Line: Drawing as Intelligence and Intelligibility Workshop, December 18-19, 2000 - Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, Germany. "Drawing in science is at once ubiquitous and invisible. Scientific manuscripts and texts abound with sketches, diagrams, engravings, lithographs, and other products of the draughtsman's pen. Yet the process and purposes of drawing in science have only sporadically attracted the attention of historians. Historians of art have occasionally studied scientific illustrations, particularly in works of natural history, but have rarely shown interest in the significance of drawing per se for the working scientist. Historians of architecture and engineering treat drawings that depict buildings, bridges, machines, and other constructions as an important source, but until recently, these sorts of drawings were segregated from both scientific and artistic drawings under the rubric "technical". The aim of this workshop is to examine the phenomenon of drawing in science within a broader context that embraces artistic and technical drawing as well, focusing on the period ca. 1750-1850, and addressing two themes: the intelligibility of drawings and the form of intelligence drawing presupposes and cultivates." Organizers: Lorraine Daston (Max Planck Institute for the History of Science), H. Otto Sibum (Max Planck Institute for the History of Science), M. Norton Wise (Princeton University, USA).

ArtSci '99: Nurturing collaborations for the next century November 13-14, 1999 - The Great Hall, Cooper Union New York, USA. A public symposium organized by Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI). "Have you ever wanted to collaborate with a geo-physicist on an underwater environmental art project, a bio-ethicist on a Broadway play of socio-political import, have the opportunity to meet people like an Emmy Award-winning science producer of shows like NOVA? The mission of ARTSCI'99 is to create a formal vehicle that will nurture art-science collaborations for the next century."

Methods of understanding in art and science. The Case of Duchamp and Poincare November 5-7, 1999 - Harvard University Science Center, New York, USA. "The purpose of this symposium is to examine specific topics relevant to both Poincare and Duchamp - topics which also offer promise for integrating both the methodology and subject matter of art and science. The conference shall include: Duchamp's and Poincare's shared terminology and common interest in unconscious intuition and choice during the creative process, the importance of doubt, the beauty of "gray matter" (mental beauty), and probabilistic systems sensitive to initial conditions in nature. Very few invited individuals will be experts in both fields of art and science or on Poincare and Duchamp. We invite you and a variety of distinguished colleagues in expectation that we can set up conditions for generating discussions of high quality on the interactions, too often strained, between art and science."

The Meeting of Art and Science March 1999 - October Gallery, London, Great Britain. "In early March 1999 a small group of artists and scientists met in London for two and a half days. The reason for the meeting was not so much to pursue an "art and science" agenda but simply to talk together, explore ideas, make contacts and discover what can occur when a group of highly creative people meet together without any particular aims or agenda." Organizers: F. David Peat, Jemma Gascoine-Becker.
