Science of the City comes to Arts Santa Mònica

It has been a long process of co-creation, but finally Science of the City comes to Arts Santa Mònica to show a living exhibition that offers us very diverse artistic views and perspectives from the city, build from 50 videos submitted by all of you to Scienceofthecity.net

On Tuesday May 8, at 19h, this participatory exhibition will open, until May 19. We will be waiting for you!

There you will find the artistic pieces created by the IMARTE research group of the University of Barcelona (UB) starting from the questions, discoveries and experiments raised by participants of the video contest. Each work is related to the videos that have inspired it.

Behind this artwork hides a meticulous process performed by la Mandarina de Newton: transcription and analysis technologies to create a document repository of issues of scientific interest in the city. From there, artists have experimented creating compositions and new images by reinterpreting the content or making transpositions to other languages​​. Nine art pieces are the end result of this process. All of them are born from the same surprise and curiosity, speaking us of fossil lichens, DNA, the color of the walls, the constituents of matter, the scientific method, the lights or pattern recognition. Curiosity has been the main driver for everyone (artists, experts, citizens) in order to start asking questions, a metadesign process that initiates research processes advancing in parallel, offering unexpected results.

We want also to tell you that we have come so far thanks to the collaboration of FECYT, Obra Social “la Caixa”, the Tech Museum of San José in California and París-Montagne in France, and the engagement and strong support of many people and entities. To all, thank you very much!

Remember, you can watch all the videos collected by ScienceoftheCity.net The exhibition, inspired by these clips, will remain open to visitors from May 8 until May 19th, at Arts Santa Mònica  ¡Do not miss it!
