[Yasmin_discussions] VERTIGO: the“sensitive” and the “intelligible”, desire and astonishment


one of the particilar challenges of the STEAM argument
is that the art science work crosses many disciplinary
boundaries but not always the same ones- inter-disciplinarity is
not a discipline and cannot be organised the same way
that a discipline, like physics, is organised. In our SEAD report
we drew on the network of networks idea, of horizontally organised
work drawing on coordination nodes-

a new european led program has just started - VERTIGO and we are pleased
that Leonardo/OLATS is a member of this network of networks

with a large network

funded through STARTS in H2020, a number of activities have been announced
including a first forum at IRCAM and a call for artists residencies:

A program of artistic residencies as part of ICT R&D projects, through
3 yearly calls for proposals which will be selected by an
international jury. A total budget of 900 k€ is allocated by the
project for funding the participation of artists in at least 45
residencies aiming at producing original artworks featuring innovative
use-cases of the developed technologies. The first call is to be
published here on March 14th

This is an ambitious and risky program, given its scale, and given
the nervousness
of some in our community about the 'instrumentalisation' of the arts
there is some
interesting language in the announcement by declaring an aim of
developing work that is

"sensitive" and the "intelligible", desire and astonishments

check out the vertigo web site at:

Vertigo, the new international art-innovation forum, presents
multidisciplinary events on creation and innovation in music, art,
design, and architecture in connection with digital technologies. This
new rendezvous brings together the leading players in the "sensitive"
and the "intelligible", desire and astonishment: artists, engineers,
scientists, and entrepreneurs who change and defy our present.
