Studierende von Interface Cultures nehmen an der Ausstellung "Artistic Recipes & Scientific Protocols" teil.

A group of Interface Cultures students participates at the exhibition “Artistic Recipes & Scientific Protocols” in Ars Electronica Center, organized in cooperation with the scientific partner Fraunhofer-Institut für Elektronische Nanosysteme ENAS Chemnitz and the cultural partner Klub Solitaer e. V..

Scientific and artistic research each have very different ways of approaching their practices: while scientific protocols are based on the idea of repeatability of any given synthetic laboratory experience, we sublimate the relevance of the artist as the creator of unrepeatable pieces that are then sold to elite clientele. The purpose of this project is hence to rebut these myths, by finding the shared goals and interests of scientific and artistic practices, protocols and rituals.

During the workshop we stressed the notion of laboratory experiments in order to find a connection to so-called artistic recipes: processes that one is only able to master over time, leading to the discovery of new complexities that render themselves visible only through the mastering of that process.

The materials and experiences collected over the process of the workshop are now presented at Ars Electronica Center with the intention of generating a new territory where scientists, artists, technicians, students, ENAS employees, etc. can reflect together through a joint aesthetic experience the nuances of their work, eventually finding new and unexpected links to other practices commonly considered diametrically opposed to their own.

The projects present a diversity of artistic approaches and technical remediations based on the collaboration experience with the ENAS Fraunhofer-Institut, ranging from the machine learning interpretation of laboratory manuals and safety protocols, the forensic architecture analysis of the laboratory spaces as they were presented to us during the online guided tour of the ENAS laboratories, and the down-up-scaling and transcoding of the video-documentation of the laboratory tour.
