Twine: Art-Science and Science-Art Curricula

Twine: Art-Science and Science-Art Curricula

Leonardo Education Forum co chair Victoria Vesna and Leonardo Executive Editor Roger Malina are interested in examples of courses and curricula that are in the art-science field- such as courses on art and biology, art and mathematics, art and chemistry etc.

We are not collecting art and new media curricula, but the broad range of arts ( all forms from performing , sound, visual etc) connecting to all sciences, hard and social sciences. We are including art and new technologies if they are not new media ( eg nano tech)

People who have taught an art-science or science art class, at university or secondary school level, in formal or informal settings are invited to contact roger malina at rmalina—at—-alum.mit.edu

We realise its hard to differentiate art-science from art-technology and that the boundaries blur ( eg nano science is hard to separate from nano technology), but a art and robotics class isn’t really what we are trying to compile here !! There are other resources that are compiling new media programs ( eg see pier luigi capucci’s resource http://edulist.noemalab.org/ as part of the YASMIN network, also Paut Thomas’ resource at
http://www.nomad.net.au/education

Please feel free also to add references/literature relevant to developing curriula in art-science or articles you have written about your pedagogy.

We thought we might try and organise a workshop or panels for educators who are developing curricula in the art science area.
