Arts at CERN collaborates with Mapping Festival

Mapping Festival, Digital Shifts


On the 24th of May at 14:00, at Le Commun - BAC, Mapping Festival presents, "Revealing the Unseen", a session to discuss how we can bridge the gap between science and art, what scientists and artists can learn from each other, and how they can navigate together into the unknown. The talk will include the artist duo semiconductor, Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt, artist Martin Howse, and Head of Arts at CERN, Mónica Bello.

Both science and art are human attempts to understand and describe the world around us. While the methods and tools to approach knowledge may be different, the primary motivations are often the same. Scientists and artists engage with open-ended inquiry, they welcome mistakes as part of their working process and do not fear the unknown. What artists want is not only to communicate or illustrate scientific and technological concepts, they want to be able to work with the same tools that formal researchers use and discover the language that shapes our worldview.

The talk is an opportunity to address the questions: how can we bridge the gap between science and art? what can scientists and artists learn from each other? how can artists and scientists navigate together in the unknown?, and also to talk about the topic "Revealing the Unseen".
