3. Mediated spaces in art, science and technology
Spaces convey multi layered meanings for the intermediation of discourse between art & science. Knowledge spaces in the sciences, humanities and the arts are often constructed and defined by ‘disciplinary’ approaches.
Guest: Yiannis Kranidiotis , Artist and programmer.
4. Designing the future: social design & collective intelligence
Design thinking as a non linear iterative process facilitates the cognitive understanding of social constructs, encounters within existing ecosystems and considers participatory methods by co-creation and action to prototype and evaluate them.
