14/16 on-site research

24.01.2013 - 24.01.2013

Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien, Wien / Österreich

micro-exhibits in six places

In order to investigate the relationships between different artistic and scientific representational cultures, students of the master degree programme Art & Science left the studio at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and dispersed to several scientific partner institutions. They entered worlds with different questions and found open-minded researchers and scientists to carefully observe. Being not invisible themselves, the observers unwittingly left marks in their field of observation and quickly became study subjects as well.... To reflect on this process of ‘observed investigation’ 16 students implemented 14 small site-specific works at the partner institutes creating a larger network of ‘micro exhibits’. A bus tour circumscribing the new found interlacing relations and now much extended lab space of the students concludes this winter semester’s journey: the search for correlations between art and science went beyond distanced observation and started to inspire relationships between different types of researchers.
