Exploring Patient Data and Surgical Healthcare

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Medical interventions and decisions are driven by data from an increasingly intricate array of measurements and tests, which creates a vivid representation of each patient. This data representation is often complex and obscure to the patient, yet has a profound impact on the trajectory of care.

We are looking for two artists, one focussing on prostate and the other on pancreatic cancer, to develop online based projects that bring together engineers, clinicians and patients to share their experiences of clinical decisions and explore what is needed for patients to feel informed in the face of complex data.

Using arts practice, we seek to facilitate conversations between these stakeholders and develop a final output building on workshop findings. The output is open but should communicate workshop discussions and findings, provoke further engagement with the topics and/or have potential as a communication aid between patients and doctors.

Collaborator Role

Through this artistic collaboration we are interested in exploring emerging themes in clinical practice, such as:

  • the relationship between patients, their data and clinical practice
  • the role of uncertainty and managing risk in clinical interventions
  • the challenge of keeping patients engaged and informed when clinical procedures are becoming increasingly sophisticated

The collaborators will work with a project team from the Wellcome / EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences, which brings engineers and clinicians together to develop technologies for planning, conducting and rehabilitation from surgery, with chances to also share and learn from each other.

Budget and Timescale

Each of the two projects will offer a maximum of £3,000 in total for artist time and expenses, workshop materials and final outputs. There is no current timeline, but we hope to begin the project in March and expect it will take 2 – 4 months to complete.

Collide residency award

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Keywords:

Collide is an annual competition that invites artists over 18 years old and of any nationality to apply with a proposal for a research-led residency in both locations: at CERN, Geneva, and at various laboratories and research centres in Barcelona, while based at the Hangar Centre for Art Research and Production.

Collide invites entries from artists who are interested in interacting with the extraordinary CERN scientific community. The programme is targeted at artists with a distinct interest in a transdisciplinary approach, a strong motivation for scientific thinking and an interest in fundamental science. The focuses of the residencies is to invite artists into the Laboratory to think, discuss, be informed and inspired, and comprehend the challenges of fundamental research and the big questions that inform physics today. Through this process, the artists develop high-quality innovative engagements with CERN’s research and community. Direct interactions with scientists are fundamental to this process.

 

Prizes Details: 

Artists interested in applying to Collide are invited to submit a project proposal that combines research and production. The scope of this proposal will include a research period at CERN and a second developmental phase in Barcelona, where the artists will have the opportunity to expand their research and test its applications through Barcelona’s scientific and cultural network, as well as to engage with a wide range of communities.

The Collide Call for Entries encourages the participation of artists interested in the ideas described above, who comply with any of the following criteria:

 

Artists interested in the cultural significance of fundamental research and scientific knowledge.                            

Artists interested in the processes of fundamental science and particle physics who are able to extrapolate this understanding into art projects of artistic excellence.

Artists pushing the traditional forms of collaboration between the artistic and scientific fields and asking innovative and provocative questions in this respect.

Artists interested in the community-driven Hangar Centre for Art Research and Production and in its interaction with the urban area and its social fabric.

The award includes the following support and conditions:

15 000 Swiss Francs as a research and artistic production award.

Personal allowance for two months at CERN, Geneva, and one month in Barcelona.

Travel costs and accommodation within a fixed budget for the three months of the artistic residency at CERN and in Barcelona.

The recipient of the residency award will be expected to:

Engage in research based on the proposal submitted to the Collide Call for Entries.

Complete the period of the residency at CERN and in Barcelona.

Meet regularly with the CERN scientific partner(s) in order to discuss the process of artistic research, exploration and discovery, and additionally work with other scientists.

Establish dialogue with scientists and researchers at the research centres, universities, and factories of creativity, with the support and guidance of the team from the Institute of Culture of Barcelona (ICUB). 

Give one talk and/or workshop during the residency.

Communicate regularly with the curators and teams of Arts at CERN and the Institute of Culture of Barcelona.

Deliver a residency report after the residency is completed in both locations.

Finalise the artwork resulting from the residency within up to six months following the residency periods.

Open call for Mountains to Oceans: the paradox exhibition *EXTENDED*

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Ocean Exhibit Series 2020
Mountains to Oceans: the paradox exhibition

Exhibit dates: 1 - 30th September 2020

In the event of a cancellation, the exhibit will take place here in Spring 2021.

Time is pressing.

In over 4.5 billion years of geological time, earth’s carbon system has suffered few extremes like today's. We and our fellow species are in trouble - here and now. 

​The immediacy of the effects of weather changes, humankind’s degradation of the forests and oceans, and the intimacy of the effects on us, in juxtaposition to geological time, is stunning, and is good reason to bury our heads in the age old sands. 

Alongside captivating works by a wealth of international artists, Art Science Exhibits brings nature science solutions into the conversation - such as ecosystem regeneration and clean-up - with the idea that when people begin to connect to the answers, change can occur. ​​​

____________________

Mountains to Oceans inaugural exhibition will take place at our main location in the very heart of Berlin, the Grand Hall of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin’s Thaer-Institut of Agriculture, next door to our friends at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (Natural History Museum). This site is three stories high and especially suited for large sculpture. 

We plan to travel some works in this exhibit to museum locations in Berlin, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, the USA, and potentially on to the 2021 Venice Biennale.

Participants in our former exhibitions have traveled with us to the 2019 Venice Biennale. Many of these artists found support to exhibit through our recommendations and many continue professional relationships with us.
