PAIR, The PARC Artist In Residence Program, is an ongoing activity that brings artists and scientists together, one on one, using technology as a common language. Embedded within PARC (The Xerox Palo Alto Research Center), a unique institution in its own right comprised of over 200 scientists and researchers from molecular engineers, to computer scientists, to linguists, to anthropologists), PAIR is about creating “marriages” between professionals in otherwise separated disciplines. PAIR currently has nine artists installed at PARC in PAIRings that are diverse in the common technology and in the scientist/artist relationship. This talk will explore some of the fundamental ideas of PAIR, how they worked out in practice, some of the things we learned, and an overview of the work of the marriages.
