ACM SIGGRAPH's DIGITAL ARTS COMMUNITY (DAC)
Empiricism and intuition are not mutually exclusive. The goal of Scientific Delirium Madness–-a collaborative initiative of Leonardo/The International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology (ISAST) and Djerassi Resident Artists Program (DRAP)–-is to explore and expand how the creativity of scientists and artists are connected. At its heart, it is a month-long residency in July 2014 for six artists and six scientists at Djerassi’s 585-acre retreat in the coastal Santa Cruz Mountains, south of San Francisco. The program will also include public and academic forums, published blogs and articles in Leonardo, published by MIT Press. Scientists selected must be involved in significant art-related research, and/or be practicing a form of art and/or have original ideas on how to integrate aspects of art and science. This includes but is not limited to poetry, playwriting, fiction, creative non-fiction, choreography, music composition, media arts/filmmaking, sculpture and photography. By the same token artists selected will have a track record of work driven by the influence of biology, chemistry, physics, math, environmental or agricultural science. A strong sense of play and experimentation is essential. Applications are now open via djerassi.org for artists who wish to be considered for this special residency. Deadline to submit: 15 February 2014.
