Which opportunities arise online for interaction between art and science? Much collaboration is created when people are in physical proximity, in the same campus or in the same building. Does the online world foster or deter interdisciplinary collaboration? The online world tends to create echo chambers, where one looks for what one is already familiar with, not with the unfamiliar.
How can we foster collaboration across disciplines in the online world? A conversation with Bettina Forget (director of SETI Institute's Artist-in-Residence program), Jennifer Parker (founding Director of OpenLab), Curtis Frank (Professor in Chemical Engineering at Stanford and the Senior Associate Dean for Faculty and Academic Affairs in the School of Engineering), Joel Slayton (founder of the CADRE laboratory at SJSU and former Executive Director of Zero1), and Piero Scaruffi (cultural historian, founder of LASER and LAST festival).
This discussion will continue on the following day with a review of work by practicing artists.
