artist talk | Fusion:Talks 2021
November 11-14, 2021
Art meets science. Meet art and science!
Online international conference Fusion Talks
I was very happy to have been invited to hold an artist talk in the second panel of Fusion:Talks!
The projects brought together 18 speakers from 9 countries who explored and identified together the possibilities offered by the field of art & science, both for the visual arts and for education and scientific or philosophical research. During 4 panels, curators, artists, designers, cultural managers, and philosophers presented different ways of approaching the collaborative relationship between art and science. We have learned that art & science is not quite a genre, it is more a multi-layered environment that cannot be embodied in just one form or process. It addresses multiple perspectives and needs, it is a sensemaking, sense giving experience of learning and certainly it is oriented both to aesthetics and research.
Fusion:Talks was developed by Qolony – the Art & Science Colony with support from The Romanian Ministry of Culture, in partnership with Austrian Cultural Forum, Institut français de Roumanie à Bucarest, The Embassy of the Netherlands in Romania and CESI – Center for Excellence in Image Studies.

Qolony – the Art & Science Colony is a cultural organization from Bucharest, which functions as a generator of links between art, science, and technology, through events and projects such as artistic residencies, exhibitions, conferences, artist / scientist talks, research and artistic creation.
