'Chronicles of an Art and Science Collaboration' at Ars Electronica 2020 Aalto Garden
This year's Ars Electronica Festival is taking place partly remotely, by linking presentation, performances and event from over 120 locations around the world. The presentations include invited guests from Aalto University, streaming from The Aalto Garden.
Chronicles of an Art and Science Collaboration highlights the use of autoethnographic narrative as tool for artistic and design research. It brings together self-reflections from three scientists who participated in an art and science collaboration dealing with the use of bio-cellulose for art and design purposes. Three days before the Covid-19 lockdown, the Systems of Representations research group, including Lily Díaz-Kommonen, Juan Duarte Regino, Emil Lindfors and Gautam Vishwanath, carried out semi-structured interview sessions with the group at their laboratory facilities in Aalto University. In the anecdotal storytelling that ensues, professor Orlando Rojas and doctoral students Janika Lehtonen and Luiz Greca talk about their childhood, what inspired them to follow careers in science and how the making of a contribution to sustainability and the good of humankind sustains their work objectives. Through their stories we learn about what inspired them to follow careers in science and how the making of a contribution to sustainability and the good of humankind sustains their work objectives.
