We would challenge the general paradigm that Art and Science are the antithesis of each other and that you are either "an Artist" or "a Scientist". As such, it will be fruitful to explore how Art and Science were linked in the past, how they interact at present and what might be the future. The aim is not only to explore how science/technology could be integrated into an artwork but how art methodology can generate new scientific insights and technologies. We see this as a relationship with many possible variations.

We would like to focus primarily on the artist researcher and the science laboratory, specifically in terms of the ways in which artists have, do and could contribute to scientific research. Embedding arts practice within a scientific environment can lead to the development of new scientific outcomes that would not have occurred in the absence of the interaction.
