Science of the City reaches Fine Arts and much more

We have been not talking too much lately about the project Science of the City. But not for lack of news. It is rather the opposite. During the last months we have been analyzing the video clips carefully closed and we started to talk with artists.

The research group imarte form the University of Barcelona (UB) has joined the project. Discussions on what a is city, what is not a city, what is science  and what is not science have already began! We have also found many references to works produced by artists that may have some connections with the video clips submitted by the participants in the Video Contest. The first artistic proposals in response to all this are starting to take shape!

Moreover, the “la Caixa” Foundation has decided to sponsor this project.

Finally, we are proud to announce that the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) has chosen it as an example of inspiring practices for scientific communication.

The science of cities has arrived from many very different towns: Barcelona, Seville, New York, San Jose, Bogota, Paris, Singapore… Many participants contributed with their videos, their comments and their votes. We tried to bring all this material to new places: universities, research centers, museums, schools, conferences… so that we could offer to all you a physical exhibition soon. We hope to meet you there!
