Art and Science

Exploring scientific issues through art. Projects revolving around science and ethics.

Description of residency program
Scientific research has always borne humanity’s greatest hopes and greatest perils. Every major discovery opens the doors to a world of new possibilities, and it is essential to evaluate them collectively. Yet a significant lack of knowledge about scientific issues prevails. Debates about eugenics, patenting living things, and risk-evaluation protocols relating to applications in the agro-food, medical and military industries are mainly confined to the scientific press. The consequences of this absence are a deep distrust of scientific institutions and a more or less rational fear. Through artistic creation, is it possible to widen the discussion and bring these issues into the collective consciousness?
