Sunday, 14th of September at the Pratt Institute at 4pm
at LevyArts, 40 E 19th St #3-R, New York City, NY 10003.

We are happy to announce the presentation of Nicole Ottiger in the context of the Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendez-Vous (LASER) in New York City.

Video Ergo Sum. Self-Representations in Art

We look out onto the world though our eyes, but we cannot perceive our heads (unless looking into a mirror) and we can’t see ourselves from behind. We do not have the ability to see ourselves as others see us. But what if we could? The presentation by Artist Nicole Ottiger explores and gives insight to the virtual nature of the self in artistic practice, by adapting a neuroscientific experiment to wear a virtual reality setting that immersed her into the body of her avatar while drawing her self-portrait (“Third Person” series).

Au Musée de la main: Les paysages sonores du coeur

Musée de la main, Rue du Buignon 21, Auditoire César Roux

Dans le cadre de la Nuit des Musées de Lausanne, Steffen Schmidt, pianiste et compositeur, explore la musicalité du coeur.

Steffen Schmidt participa au programme Swiss artists-in-labs en 2011 en tant qu’artiste en résidence au service de chirurgie cardio-vasculaire du CHUV auprès du Professeur Ludwig von Segesser.

La nuit des musées Lausanne – exposition Lab/Life. Deux expositions sur le vivaient
Sep 2014 18

Au Musée de la Main: Lab / Life. Deux expositions sur le vivant

24st of September, 6 :30 pm, Vernissage

Exhibition form 25th of September 2014 to 22nd of February 2015

Musée de la main, Rue du Buignon 21, Auditoire César Roux

Le Musée de la main se plonge dans l’actualité des sciences de la vie. La double exposition LAB/LIFE valorise d’une part les enjeux de la recherche contemporaine en biologie et en médecine. D’autre part, elle donne un coup de projecteur particulier sur le domaine des cellules souches, fascinant et controversé, pour montrer les possibilités et les limites de la médecine régénérative. Les œuvres présentées de l’artiste Sylvia Hostettler représentent et démontrent une approche singulière envers cette thématique.

Sylvia Hostettler participa au programme Swiss artists-in-labs en 2008 en tant qu’artiste en résidence au Centre Intégratif de Gémomique (CIG) de l’Univeristé de Lausanne auprès du laboratoire du Professeur Christian Frankhauser.

Science of Sleep

Performance and Lecture by Sandra Huber and Thomas Curie

26th of. September, 8 pm
Schule für Dichtung, Wien

Poet Sandra Huber and biologist Thomas Curie (Center for Integrative Genomics, CIG) will discuss the poetry and science of sleep. Focus will be placed on the artists project Assembling the Morrow (coming out with Talonbooks in fall 2014) in which she turned neural oscillations into lines of text, following upon a 9-month residency at the CIG in Lausanne. Writing as technology, bioelectricity, rhythms of the body, and the quixotic attempt of those who have sought a language of consciousness, from Hans Berger to Gertrude Stein, will be up for discussion. During her participation at the project State of the Art –Science and Art in Practice Sandra Huber developed an installation of one of her pieces, which will be now presented at Literaturhaus Wien.

Sandra Huber participated in the Swiss artists-in-labs program in 2010 as an artist in residence in collaboration with Professor Paul Franken at the Center for Integrative Genomic of the university of Lausanne and is now part of the research project State oft he Art – Science and Art in Practice, founded by the Swiss National Science Foundations, SNF.

Kunst vermittelt Wissenschaft
But everything was different from what I expected
it to be

Presentation by Irène Hediger

18th of September, 1:45 pm
Beromünster/Sursee

An der nächsten ScienceComm’14 blickt Irène Hediger im Rahmen des Schwerpunktes “Wissenschaft und Kunst” auf 10 Jahre Kollaborationen zwischen Kunstschaffenden und Wissenschaftlerinnen im Labor zurück und reflektiert anhand konkreter Beispiele Prozesse und Ergebnisse dieser intensiven und immersiven Praxiserfahrung zwischen den Disziplinen.
Davon ausgehend, dass im transdisziplinären Feld von Kunst und Wissenschaft mit den dort entstehenden Fragestellungen und Themen zukünftig ein grosses Potential für soziale und technische Innovationen liegt, werden die Herausforderungen des experimentellen Settings im Spannungsfeld von institutionellen Strukturen und deren Referenzsystemen betrachtet. Zudem werden die Bedeutung solcher Kollaborationen für die künstlerische Praxis und die wissenschaftliche Forschung aufgezeigt. Einen Einblick in erweiterte Möglichkeiten von Vermittlung und Kuration sowie einen Ausblick auf die Neukonzeption des Swiss artists-in-labs programs und dessen Positionierung werden ebenfalls präsentiert.
