BRIDGING THE DIVIDE: COLLABORATION, COMMUNICATION AND EDUCATION IN ART AND SCIENCE
As an artist who works collaboratively with scientists I am interested in the potential for developing meaningful discourse and research that engages at the interface between disciplines and provides fertile ground for creative enquiry and experimentation.
Interdisciplinary research and collaborations in the field of art and science embrace the potential to explore diverse approaches to understanding the nature of the world we live in and the development of ways to communicate this.
In this paper I will be considering the potential in collaborative investigation and the experience of establishing the MA Art and Science at University of the Arts London, including issues arising and approaches taken in the creation, development and delivery of the course, and implications for how this might inform future programme development internationally.
Proposals will be made for developing collaborative projects and networks for communication to facilitate the sharing and dissemination of research in public and educational domains, with recommendations for actions towards advancing understanding and engagement with the field of art and science in the context of opportunities and obstacles experienced to date.
