The human impact of Art Science collaboration


  Last updated June 11, 2019 at 9:24 am


Art and science are often seen as seperate cultures, but the development of art-science as a field, where artists and scientists collaborate on research questions and production, has led to new forms of research and to findings that couldn’t have emerged from each discipline alone.  This is the ‘third space’, the intersection of art, science and the public.

Curating the Third Space is a research project aiming to find out what value these art/science collaborations have, for the artists, scientists, and public involved.  This short documentary demonstrates the use of the visual matrix, a technique developed to capture the shared, complex, emergent and transformative aspects of the experience of the 2016 exhibition The Patient at UNSW Galleries.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
