The Sci|Art NanoLab Summer Institute Final Presentations

The course offers a cutting-edge, 4-credit lab/studio course focused on interdisciplinary collaborations that explore the possibilities and implications of scientific and technological innovation. Nanoscience research requires fresh ways of thinking and new methodologies and the future of innovation and discovery in nanotechnology is determined not just by scientific knowledge, but also by the application of creative thought and imagination that go beyond a traditional reductionist approach. The advantage of an artistic approach lies in its ability to address challenges from a more holistic and general view, to conceive of new ways to deal with complexity which, when combined with science, provide a powerful new direction for invention and creation. Through historical retrospective, lab visits, guest lectures, field trips, surveys of current art-science collaborations as well as science fiction movie screenings, students will be exposed to the interface of science, art and culture. In two weeks students experience a 10-week class and receive college credit that is transferable. To foster this process, groups of students will develop an original concept for a collaborative project under the challenge of ‘Imagine the Impossible’. With the assistance skill workshops and the knowledge base of the Sci|Art Team, groups of students create and deliver a multimedia presentation during the closing ceremony.
