About this residence:
"Field_Notes – Cultivating Grounds” is a week long field laboratory for theory and practice on art&science work at the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station of the University of Helsinki in Lapland. Five working groups, each hosted by an expert (Oron Catts, Marta de Menezes, Anu Osva, Tapio Makela and Terike Haapoja) together with a team of four, will develop, test and evaluate specific artistic approaches based on the interplay of art&science. The outcome of Field_Notes will result in a publication published by the Finnish Bioart Society in 2012.
Practitioners, in both art and science, repeatedly argue that their disciplines loose touch with the actual research subject or topic while the focus is directed on lab work or gallery presentation. Field_Notes aims to investigate and point out the importance of field work in art&science. The fields where Field_Notes will be carried out specifically are the subarctic nature, ecology and landscape, the lab, the workshop, the study, the infosphere and the Field_Notes working groups as such.
Expected results include abstracts, code, collaborations, data, documentation, future workshops, hardware, ideas, knowledge, photos, presentations, prototypes, skills, sounds, projects, videos etc.
Field_Notes executive team: Erich Berger and Terike Haapoja.
