[ISEA2022] Paper: Denise Doyle, Richard Glover, Martin Khechara & Sebastian Groes — Arts, Science and Technology in the ISSM Project and Exhibition

Introductory Statement 

Remote paper presentation, date: June 10. Session: Innovative and collaborative strategies for the students development

Keywords: Art-Science, STARTS Prize, Art-Science Methodologies, Future Flora, Virophilia

In 2019 a team of multi-disciplinary researchers undertook a research project entitled Identifying Successful STARTS Methodologies (ISSM) (2019-2021) in order to analyze the innovative and collaborative strategies utilized by the global Science, Technology and Arts (=STARTS) Prize Winners and nominees. The aim was to identify and articulate successful STARTS Methodologies through a series of interviews and in-depth case studies of the recognized projects. The project culminated in a series of case studies and an exhibition at the Made in Wolves Gallery at the University of Wolverhampton, UK, and further presented at UK Garden of Earthly Delights at Ars Electronica in 2020. The project identified three emerging themes: the significance of building a new language of art and science through a third space, the process of anti-disciplinarity as an emergent form of practice, and the importance of different ways of knowing through art and science. A number of the case studies and themes are presented here alongside images from the exhibition. http://wlvartscience.co.uk
