Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, 65 West 11th Street, Wollman Hall, New York, NY
The conference is organized by Ligo Project in collaboration with Eugene Lang College Dept. of Science & Mathematics at The New School.
Science and our larger culture have gone through radical change over the past century. We are now beginning to realize these changes can either lead us to destruction or become the seeds of our revival. As we more and more readily take into our own hands the future evolution of our bodies, our minds, the civilizations we create, and the very planet we inhabit, it is imperative that we reach across disciplines and across cultures to guide what we do by what we know and guide what we know by what we value.
Until recently, art and the humanities in general have been perceived as mutually exclusive disciplines compared to science. Over the past several years, however, there has been increasing interest in bringing these fields together to explore overlapping themes and methods. Scientific breakthroughs in areas like biochemistry, particle physics, and genetic research have radically changed our view of the world, and simultaneously more and more artists have started to work with scientific areas of research, technologies, and methods in the field of “sci-art,” often in collaboration with scientists.
