ABOUT ART|SCI

THE CENTER & OUR PARTNERS

"To pursue, facilitate and promote research and programs that demonstrate the potential of media arts and science collaborations." The Art|Sci Center focuses on collaborative projects that address social, ethical and environmental issues related to scientific innovations.

We are part of a world-wide network of artists and scientists who are interested in philosophical dialogue as well as working together on artistic or applied projects.

CURRENT EVENTS

OPPORTUNITIES TO COLLABORATE

The Art|Sci Center presents exhibitions, lectures, mixers, and symposia to bring artists and scientists together in order to mesh these cultures and inspire individuals to think about art and science as already interrelated and relevant to our society.

To this end we established a small gallery in the California NanoSystems Institute and a series of guest lectures called LASERs coordinated with undergraduate and graduate classes.
