Dear Yasminers

We are pleased to announce the first 5 artists and researchers
selected for residence in
Marseille at the IMERA, Mediterranean Institute of Advanced Studies.

Four of the residents will be well known to Yasminers

Scientist Jim Gimzewski, a leading nano scientist, has a long history
of art science practice
and will be working on An Art/Sci Exploration of Creativity and
Imagination in fields of Nanotechnology and its future Role on Society
with emphasis on Nano-Neuromorphic Information Technology and Materiel

Artist Peter Richards, Senior Artist at the San Francisco
Exploratorium, will be carrying out an art science project
Intersections : Land, Water & Culture .I would want to find ways of
physically expressing some of the commonalities between life in
Mediterranean regions and the Bay Area in a manner that could lead to
some shared understandings of the global aspects of the rapidly
evolving nature of the physical world

Artist Rachel Mayeri will be working with the primate research lab
here on Primate cognition in crisis : looking at the relationship
between decision-making and emotions.

We will also be welcoming science historian Patrick Macray who will be familiar
to Yasminers as he was an invited discussant for the YASMIN discussion
on art and atoms.
