A New Vision for Art/Sci Collaborative Networks for Actionable Change 

WATCH VIDEO EVENT HERE

In March of 2020, at the outset of the COVID19 pandemic, Leonardo hosted a series of virtual community gatherings over the course of two months, with the goal of bringing the community together at this cataclysmic time in order to share and support one another, and to aggregate important information to inform Leonardo’s future programming. Three of us were subsequently invited to form a working group to analyze and evaluate this data, and to explore possibilities that might be suggested by this experience. We will be offering an actionable working process perspective that engages our global existential problems of economic inequity, human rights, and climate change. 

Presenters: Gustavo Rincon, Steven J. Oscherwitz, and Laura Schwartz

Keywords: Humanity, Climate Change, Human Rights, Economic, Inequity


RECOMMENDED PROGRAMS AT ARS ELECTRONICA
AGORA DIGITALIS Campus 2020 

Agora Digitalis is the Interface Cultures’ network meeting point during Campus exhibition 2020. The general idea behind Agora Digitalis is to create an informal setting where students, (future) makers and future students meet and all get acquainted with Interface Cultures. Agora Digitalis is a physical and virtual place where everyone should be able to express and share their ideas. It is planned to be a place for informal learning and critical debate about developments in the arts, technology and science.

The UCLA ArtSci center presents Telluric Vibrations

A festival with an exhibition, workshops and symposium based at the UCLA Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Gardens as well as in virtual venues like Mozilla Hubs, Zoom and YouTube. Telluric Vibrations nurtures ideologies both above and below ground. Using the model of a plant growing both upward into the atmosphere and downward into the soil this festival simultaneously cultivates the Earth and the Ether - conceptually and physically, grounding technology. Plant roots obtain nutrients in the ground through multiple interactions with fungi and microbes, the leaves chemically consume light and manifest it into sugars and then the flowers reveal themselves [as the result of these interactions] as hosts for the continuation of the many.
