ART|SCI CENTER TWO-DAY SYMPOSIUM
RECAP: ARTS based RESEARCH in TIMES of CLIMATE and SOCIAL CHANGE

The two-day symposium and exhibition on arts based research aimed to envision a future in which arts and design are understood to be central to the success of every complex problem. The program highlighted the importance of art research and education, particularly in times of social unrest and climate change. It is through the arts that the scope of human experience around creativity, innovation, empathy, culture and knowledge is learned, expressed and distributed, both for the common good and the development of the individual. By highlighting collaborative research between artists, humanists, scientists and scholars at large, the symposium demonstrated the important role of art research in academia and beyond.

ID. ART:TECH EXHIBITION
OPENING: 11 MAY 2019

CYLAND MediaArtLab in collaboration with Center for the Studies of Russian Art CSAR presents the exhibition ID. ART:TECH. The exhibition is dedicated to the ID as a phenomenon with wide scatter of meanings—from the term in psychoanalysis (id) to the document that certifies one’s identity (ID). We are interested in what ID represents in the world of people and things, what new meanings come to life when they interact and what this leads to. From 10 May–28 June 2019, in the space Ca’ Foscari Zattere Cultural Flow Zone, there will be a show of works by the contemporary authors from Russia, Italy, Great Britain, USA, Belgium, France, Norway as well as artworks by the classics of the 20th century. Find out more

RECOGNITION OF LEONARDO’S OUTSTANDING PEER REVIEWERS
In 2017 we commenced a quarterly recognition of exceptional peer reviewers in our network. This month we extend our gratitude and congratulations to the following for their in-depth and deeply constructive feedback on papers under consideration for publication:

Siying Duan is a postdoc fellow at School for the Contemporary Arts, Simon Fraser University. Her research interest focuses mainly on the study of media arts from a perspective of Chinese Aesthetics.

Craig S. Kaplan is a computer science professor at the University of Waterloo. He has a BMath in Pure Mathematics and Computer Science from Waterloo, and an MS and PhD in Computer Science from the University of Washington.

As an artist, Hans W. Koch likes working with things in plain view, but not obvious. He considers art sculpting thoughts in different materials and personally favours conceptual approaches: more thought, less material.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: 2019 CODAME ART+TECH FESTIVAL
Deadline: 12 June 2019

Space is a canvas on which we write our stories, paint our dreams and build our realities. As the film camera captured the transformation of the modern world, so, too, do emerging digital media point their lenses toward the future. Through art, as we architect space, we envision the future. The 2019 CODAME ART+TECH Festival explores the many facets of space. How do technologies like virtual reality allow new ways of living, being, playing and moving in space? How do radical mapping projects redefine our relationships to our world, and to each other? In this exhibition, we aim to expand our space and transcend borders. CODAME encourages participation from international artists! Find out more

T.M.ReaganThe bright circular abstractions of Myrrh (Trudy Myrrh Reagan), her "portholes into the unknown," interpret various realms of science. In her new book, Essential Mysteries in Art and Science, she also elaborates on the science behind the paintings in a dozen well-researched essays about these realms. The first section is an art book, presenting Myrrh’s Essential Mysteries series of vivid paintings. What follows is the artist’s encounter with powerful ideas in science that give us the outlines of the cosmos in which we live. Available now
