SYNTOPIK RESEARCH- Arthaus Ambach

SYNTOPIK facilitates transdisciplinary research between artists and scientists.

Description of residency program
The residency facilitates cutting edge research between artists and scientists on a highly creative level of excellence. Our objective is to create a new paradigm in research and research methodology, transcending disciplines.

At their core, artists and scientists are very similar.  Both endeavour to solve our greatest mysteries through the power of imagination. Leonardo da Vinci was both artist and inventor. Significant scientific development depends on the overturning of established ideas. Since the 20th century, leading thinkers, from Albert Einstein to Stuart Kauffman, have called for looking beyond the limits of reductive science in order to grapple with the complexities of our present age.

Duration of residency
2 weeks - 3 months, longer residencies will be considered with an appropriate research proposition. 

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
A research cluster consists of two or more artist and scientist investigators working on a proposition which is equally motivated by all parties. Artistic and scientific agency comes with great responsibility to humanity. New modes of synergetic investigation are crucial the future of humanity by providing new insight to the environmental, medical and technological dimensions of world problems and the development of human consciousness.

The residency is mediated by artist, scientist and philosopher ‘diplomats’ who have the ability to simultaneously inhabit multiple epistemic domains, being genuinely sympathetic to different frameworks in the arts, humanities and sciences. They translate between contemplative, technical and theoretical practice, bridging and overlapping these different modi operandi and reflection.
