In the first panel “Art Science: From Vision to Practice” Prof. Hiroshi Ishii from MIT Media Lab’s Tangible Media Group will lead the discussion about the transdisciplinary nature of creative work that crosses art, design, science and technology.

Abstraction is essential to conveying complex messages in artistic expression. It is also critical in science to formulate laws of nature through abstraction based on data. Leading artists, designers, scientists, and engineers will present and discuss the cross-fertilization among art, design, science and technology.
