IMERA, 地中海高级研究所(the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies)已经开始了新一轮的艺术驻居召集工作(2011年初开始):
http://www.imera.fr

截止日期为2010年4月15日。详细信息请见:
http://www.imera.fr/index.php/en/becoming-a-fellow/applications.html

我是IMERA ASIL(艺术科学编撰语言)的联合主席,也非常愿意与有兴趣的olats会员一起讨论此次艺术驻居项目。请发邮件至我的信箱:rmalina@alum.mit.edu

通过关注最新的IMERA艺术驻居项目你可以看到一系列的艺术科学研究都在进行当中:

我们最近同样接受了来自埃及亚历山大的艺术家Mohammed Youssef的艺术驻居方案。他的工作重点是研究移动和模拟。

IMERA的艺术驻居是研究性的驻居(不是为了产出艺术作品,但是IMERA可以帮助联系那些有此意向的机构)目的在于帮助建立IMERA艺术驻居和地方科学工作室之间的合作(或是为IMERA科学驻居与艺术工作室建立联系)

这里是一个目的综述:(参见末尾含有一些主题的列表,并不包括所有主题)

IMERA希望能够为建设新型的跨学科有所贡献,而其的推动力则是我们社会中的变化以及新的科学发现和理解。IMERA尝试通过在IMERA与当地学者、科研人员和艺术家合作的驻居项目中的研究活动来完成这一使命。

IMERA深切顾虑科学中的人类处境:
起点可以是科学以及人类创造性和对抗论证与试验之间的关系。
或者人们可以整理出科学是如何进入人的环境的(通过它的理论、模式和技术):理解社会互动如何调节和整合科学研究的结果以及这些结果和机构如何参与到发展问题和社会历史中。

有了一个科学性的出发点,比如:
关于数学想法起源的数学之迷;生物学家在“in vivo”试验时面临道德约束;宇航员担心宇宙主要成分以当前科学理解力来讲触不可及;气候科学家必须预期情况多样性的社会影响以及气候变化后的人类处境;对于那些意识到自己工作中的美学和道德含义的科学家来说他们必须面对科学中的人类处境。

如果我们看一下社会中的科学的介入:
物理学家必须考虑能源生产集中形式的由来已久的影响(也许有一天融合能源?);经济学家正面临自己的模型被经济研究所运用的方式,而这些模型基于理想化的人类行为模式;历史学家面临的则是将证人的誓词缕顺的方法以及媒体将如何有选择地使用其中部分的分析结论。那些在科学理解和文化接收者之间建立了新型互动模式的艺术家必须了解人类环境和视角的多样性。

每一个研究者必须从他们自身对于作品中内在和外在约束的感触来定义他们对于科学中人类处境的看法。

2010年IMERA将探讨的部分话题包括:
- 人类/ 非人类
- 危机/风险/欲望
- 规则
- 复杂的联网
- 形变
- 易损的海洋,平衡中的世界

所提的主题仅代表当前部分的关注热点。大家可以自由提出与IMERA总体目标相关的其他主题。

我们特别鼓励来自地中海地区的申请。

IMERA, the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies has announced a new call for Residencies (to start in early 2011):
http://www.imera.fr/

The deadline is April 15, 2010.

Details of the call are available at :
http://www.imera.fr/index.php/en/becoming-a-fellow/applications.html

I am co chair of the IMERA ASIL ( Art Science Instrumentations Languages) initiative at IMERA and am happy to discuss the residency program with interested olats members. Drop me an email at rmalina@alum.mit.edu

You will see from the imera residents to date that a number of art science research programs are under way:
http://www.imera.fr/index.php/en/the-fellows/2009-2010.html

We also recently accepted the residency proposal of artist Mohammed Youssef from Alexandria, Egypt who works on movement and simulation.

IMERA residencies are research residencies ( not for production of art work= but IMERA can help connect with organisations whose purpose this is) and the goal is to help set up collaborations between imera residents and local science laboratories ( or arts collaborations for scientists resident at IMERA)

Here is a general statement of purpose: ( see a list of possible-but not exclusive topics at the end)

roger malina


IMERA seeks to contribute to the construction of new types of inter-disciplinarity which are driven by the changes in our societies as well as by new scientific discoveries and understanding. IMERA seeks to do this through the research activities of the IMERA residents in collaboration with scholars, researchers and artists in the region.

IMERA has at its heart a concern about the Human Condition of the Sciences :
The starting point can be the sciences, and the relationship between human creativity and confrontation with demonstration or experiment.

Or one can unpack how science is inserted into the human situation (via its theories, models and technologies):
understanding how the societal interaction modifies and integrates the results of scientific research, and how its results, and institutions are incorporated into the developing issues and history of society.

With a scientific starting point, for example:
the mathematician wonders about the origin of ideas in mathematics; the biologist confronts the ethical constraints of experimentation "in vivo"; the astronomer worries about the dominant components of the universe are inaccessible to current scientific understanding; the climate scientist has to anticipate the social impact of the variety of scenarios and the human situation faced with climate change; the scientists who are aware of the esthetic and ethical implications of their work must confront the human condition of the sciences

If we look at the insertion of science in society:
the physicist must consider the institutional impact of centralized forms of energy production (one day fusion power?); the economists are confronted with the way that their models are applied by economic institutions, which are based on idealized models of human behavior; historians are confronted with the way that they contextualized the testimony of witnesses, and how the media will selectively use only portions of their analyses. The artists who establish new modes of interaction between scientific understanding and its cultural reception must understand the varieties of human context and perception.

Each researcher must define from their own sense of the internal and external constraints on their own work, their perspective on the human condition of the sciences.

Some of the topics which are being discussed by IMERA in 2010 include :
- human/non human
- crisis/risk/anxiety
- regulation
- complex networks
- metamorphosis
- fragile seas, worlds in balance

These topics are mentioned to indicate only some of the current interests. Proposers are free to propose their own topics, connected the overall goals of IMERA.

We particularly encourage applications from residents of the mediterranean region.
