How does the world look from way up top? Othmar Coser of the Austrian Space Forum will screen breathtaking satellite images of Earth at the next Deep Space LIVE on December 14, 2017. His talk entitled “Eye in the Sky” will also reveal which data terrestrial observation technology measures, and go into why this is being done? Find out more in this interview.
The European Space Agency (ESA) annually stages two international workshops for teachers from its member states. ESERO Austria made it possible for two Austrian teachers to take part in this year’s workshop in The Netherlands. Here’s an account of how it went.
Even if signals aren’t being received from the Schiaparelli Test Lander on that evening, we nevertheless had an absolutely fascinating time at the ESA Mission Control Centre in Darmstadt, where we followed the decisive moments of the Mars landing in the company of scientists and artist Aoife Van Linden Tol. Here, we present a few impressions of the journey.
Are we alone in the universe? This is certainly a high-priority question on science’s agenda. Now, with a landing on Mars, humankind is taking another giant step towards answering it. Thomas Walloschek is an engineer with the European Space Agency (ESA). Following a recent nightshift in the ExoMars mission control room, he took some time out to give us a briefing about this project.
Violent explosions are sources of particular fascination to artist Aoife Van Linden Tol. An art&science residency is giving her the opportunity to visit the European Space Agency (ESA) and Ars Electronica Futurelab to soak up a healthy dose of inspiration for her next project. In this interview, she talks about, among other things, the fact that there’s a lot more to explosions than destructive force.
“You start to understand how little we really understand.” ESA Senior Science Advisor Mark McCaughrean talks about the interplay of art and science, and thinks aloud about whether we’ll ever succeed in getting the knowledge of the cosmos that we’ve accumulated into our modest heads.
Artists still have until June 20, 2016 to apply for a residency of several weeks duration at the technical center of the European Space Agency (ESA), where, in autumn of this year, they’ll be on hand to experience two spectacular missions: the landing of the Rosetta Space Probe and the ExoMars Mission. In this interview, Senior Science Advisor Mark McCaughrean gives us some insights into the ESA’S very promising activities.
And indeed, their concept was a great discovery for the jurors too. Under the aegis of the European Digital Art & Science Network, an artists’ collective named Quadrature will spend several weeks at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile and then at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, and present the results of their work at the 2016 Ars Electronica Festival.
Night after night, the European Southern Observatory’s huge telescopes in Chile peer deeply into the unknown expanses of the universe. Fernando Comerón, the ESO’s on-site chief-of-staff, recently talked to us about possible ways in which art and science can engage in mutual inspiration at these locations and what this postulated ninth planet in our solar system is all about.
The European Art and Science Network is once again offering interested artists the chance for a creative sojourn at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile and at the Ars Electronica Futurelab in Linz. Here’s an account of how the first such residency played out.
María Ignacia Edwards is the recipient of an extraordinary opportunity under the aegis of art & science: a residency at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile and at the Ars Electronica Futurelab in Linz. We accompanied her on her pre-visit in Chile
The recipient of the Residency staged under the auspices of the Art & Science Network has been announced. Maria Ignacia Edwards was selected from among the 140+ applicants from 40 countries who responded to the open call.
Lale Eric Dobrivoje from the Center for the Promotion of Science, Richard Kitta and Michal Murin of DIG Gallery discussed how science and art can benefit from one another and what those submitting a project to the Open Call of the art&science network ought to keep in mind.
In this interview, Robert Devcic, director of GV Art, and Oscar Abril, artistic director of LABoral, speak about their expectations from the European Digital Art and Science Network.
The Kapelica Gallery and Zaragoza City of Knowledge Foundation are two partners of the art & science network. In the interview, they present their expectations.
Fernando Comerón, the ESO’s representative in Chile, talks in the interview about what winners of the open call of the „European Digital Art and Science Network“ can expect during their residency at the ESO.
Diane McSweeney gives us a briefing on Science Gallery Dublin, an “art & science” partner institution, and discusses her expectations of the art-science encounter.
„European Digital Art and Science Network“ is the title of the just launched initiative by Ars Electronica, which aims to combine scientific topics with creative and innovative approaches to digital art.
