In the program

> "Atmosphère, ..." : HeHe (artists) and Jean-Marc Chomaz (physicist artist, CNRS research director, professor at École Polytechnique), about the project " Absynth" (project supported by La Diagonale Paris-Saclay ).

> "Living under the sea": Nicolas Floc'h (artist), around his artistic projects of artificial reefs and his residence aboard TARA Pacific last spring.

> At the break:

Exchange around a drink and Announcements & News from the public (the microphone will be open to announce your events, exhibitions, publications, conferences, shows, performances, residencies, ...).

In recent years, the art-science relationship has taken on a new dimension and covers very different, if not opposite, practices, themes and approaches. LASER Paris intends to explore the different modalities of these creations and researches to constitute a place of reflection and exchange and to offer opportunities for professional meetings between the actors.

At each meeting, artists and scientists share their experience. One of these "duets" comes from the projects supported by La Diagonale Paris-Saclay. In addition, in 2017, the theme of the Anthropocene was retained as a common theme: at each meeting at least one of the participants will be an artist or a scientist whose work or research is related to this theme. And, according to the LASER meeting format, the public will have a say not only in the debates around the projects but also by a time dedicated to its announcements and the open discussions after the presentations.
