Symposium HOWTO Things
Title: HOW TO map for artistic research
In contemporary knowledge production and distribution communication is gaining unbelievable speed and it is becoming nearly impossible to find collaboration and communication methods between artists and scientists. My proposal is that mapping and visualization could be a platform (and a common language) where artists and scientists could meet. I am going to develop some arguments based on my projects as curator and editor in the light of artistic research.
