[Yasmin_discussions] Fwd: hybrid city as interface


another example - but a different kind of art
science mapping


Perdita Phillips

fieldwork/fieldwalking PhD 2003-2006

The fieldwork/fieldwalking project was an practice-based PhD that
looks at the connections between how scientists and artists work in
the field. Many artists have used walking as a method or art form in
the city and the country. Despite the impact of remote sensing and
computer modelling, fieldwork is still an important component of
research in areas of the sciences and social sciences. What happens
when these two differing practices, art and science, collide? There
are similarities and differences. Both ways of working rely upon being
there, for example. But conventionally most people would say that when
performing the role of an artist or a scientist, we see the
environment differently. Are there ways of combining these different
ways of seeing the environment into a hybrid art form?
