Hypothesis: An Art/Science Fair examines the intersection of art and science by showcasing the ways in which both artists and scientists ask questions, experiment with processes and arrive at outcomes.
The Lab invites artists, makers, performers, scientists, writers and any other interested parties to participate in Hypothesis: An Art/Science Fair to be held on the evening of Friday, November 1 at The Lab in San Francisco. Participants will be asked to represent their practice (artistic, scientific or any combination thereof) in relation to the scientific method and present it in the form of a traditional science fair display board. The collected displays will be exhibited in a traditional science fair format where viewers will be able to interact with the presenters as well as see and explore the questions, research and results of the participants' work. The simplicity and familiarity of this standard format will provide a framework which will support a wide variety of conceptual, creative, intellectual and scientific pursuits. Participants will be judged by a group of creative and scientific professionals. Afterwards, prizes and ribbons will be awarded. Hypothesis is presented at The Lab in conjunction with the Bay Area Science Festival.
How to Apply:
Participants should present their practice in the form a traditional science fair display utilizing the "scientific method" to: define a question or concept, gather information and observations, form a hypothesis, explain experiments and processes, analyze data or processes, and draw a conclusion. Displays should be presented in a traditional science fair display on a 36" x 48" tri-fold board (not provided by The Lab). Additional supporting materials may be brought in as well. Participants need not be professional artists or scientists; we seek a wide range of projects accessible to a broad audience.
