Call for artworks: “Between Life & Mind & Art”

Posted in General by matthewegbert on August 14, 2008

Call for artworks:
Is your scientific research generating artistic outputs, intentionally or unintentionally? Is your artistic research generating scientific outputs, intentionally or unintentionally? Either way please share them with us as part of special one day Life and Mind event entitled “Between Life & Mind & Art”.

Date: Wednesday, the 29th of October

Many researchers whose work is linked to that of the Life and Mind seminar group have found that as part of their output the spontaneous production of art is occurring, sometimes intentionally and at other times more organically. This event seeks to investigate this phenomenon and invites researchers to share their artworks and experiences alongside artists working in similar areas.


Matthew Egbert (, Researcher CCNR
Anna Dumitriu (, Artist in Residence Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Robotics

We envision the event schedule consisting of:
1) 1.5 hours: A keynote address with projected slides & seating, including a question and answer period.
Pia Tikka (University of Helsinki) “Enactive Cinema”
2) 1.5 hours: exhibition viewing with wine + nibbles
3) “When Is Art Science and When Is Science Art? Or Is This Even A Valid Question?!” A one hour chaired open discussion / debate between the attendees/exhibitors.

Please get in touch as soon as possible to the organisers to arrange to exhibit works, as space is limited and we need to talk to you about technical requirements.

To attend the event please book by getting in touch with either Matthew Egbert ( or Anna Dumitriu (
