Workshop “Fragments of Dark Matter Life” – Open Codes. Leben in digitalen Welten

23. November 17 - 27. November 17


Vom 20.10.2017 bis zum 05.08.2018 findet das vielfältige Ausstellungsprogramm “Open Codes. Leben in digitalen Welten” im Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie in Karlsruhe statt. In diesem Rahmen geben Fabrizio Tamburini, Freddy Paul Grunert und Cristina Fiordimela in Form eines 4tägigen Workshops Einblick in ihre Arbeiten. Unter dem Titel “Fragments of Dark Matter Life” erläutern sie ihre wissenschaftliche Forschung sowie einen neuartigen Ansatz der Verschmelzung von Kunst und Wissenschaft.

“Fragments of Dark Matter Life”

23.-26.11.2017, free Entry, Meeting point: Fragments of Dark Matter Life

With luminous, vibrating stars as detectors,

Cristina Fiordimela, museographer,
Freddy Paul Grunert, curator,
and Fabrizio Tamburini, astrophysics,

investigate and reveal with you the hidden signatures of invisible Dark Matter permeating the Universe and its way of manifesting the invisible in terrestrial life, from astrophysics, the arts , philosophy to cognitive sciences until rethinking to the laboratory-archive-museum-life .

Mining, intuition, and consciousness in order to elaborate and experiment new tools and new attitudes for research and the diffusion of knowledge itself.

1st Day (Thu, November 23, 2017) 3 pm–6 pm

Freddy Paul Grunert

Nobel shift, from Uppsala to the stars

Observations from the changing paradigma in science and media art

Fabrizio Tamburini

Why dark matter? Zwicky in 1933 pointed out the discrepancy between the dynamical and luminous matter in the Coma cluster of galaxies stressing the need for some form of Dark Matter. The gravitational and luminous matter signatures are clearly separated in many cases, like in galaxy rotation curves and gravitational lensing and in the formation of cosmic structures. During these years many experiments and theoretical efforts improved our knowledge both in data collecting, analysis and theory with a been tremendous progress.

Recently, using stars as detectors, we were finally able to give a possible experimental evidence to this elusive part of the universe.

Cristina Fiordimela

The progressive development and approach in Art and Science gives new impulses to science and art communication in museography. Nowadays the revealed intrinsic common practice in art and science gives new impulses to a field of keywords through which we can experience concepts and practice in the triangle of art/science/space.

Introduction speaking of metalanguage art/science exhibition-communication fields: recent theories.

The first target of the introductional séance is to map across a resonate bibliography the transformation of space in the unity of art/ science / space linked to perception / participation as an cognitive sensorial experience.The keywords found will have the function of media- tools to get access what the paper of Fabrizio Tamburini reveals in relation to dark matter.

The incipit is the concept of artificial space-medium  in Macdonald S., Silverstone R. »Science on display: the representation of scientific controversy in museum exhibitions«, Durant J. Museums and Public Understanding of Science (1992) as an introduction to an   excursus in museography: Public Intimacy, Architecture and Visual Arts, by Bruno G. (2007) .

Even Chaumier S. Jacobi D., Exposer des idées (2009), follows this interpretation adding his idea of Ambiance  by Chelkoff G. (2nd International Congres of Ambiance, Montréal 2012), conducting to the most recent  experiences  di museum-medium-agorà.

2nd Day (Fri, November 24, 2017): 3 pm–6 pm

Freddy Paul Grunert

From Tamburini’s stars ase the detectors to the invisible to new dimensions in the research of the unseen, considering new neuro- and cognitive researches from Radical Embodied Cognitive Science to the the Blue Brain Project

Fabrizio Tamburini

Change of paradigms science, art and mediatechnology – part one.

How new ideas can be born. What is the correct approach to an »unsolvable« problem? Some examples such as vorticities, dark matter search and challenges to impossible problems can be faced by using different perspectives.

Cristina Fiordimela

The key-words of  the first session open to new experiences and projects focusing  to a field of new attitudes following the fenomenological Unit of art/science/space.

3rd Day (Sat, November 25, 2017): 3 pm–6 pm

Freddy Paul Grunert

Eretics in science: from Roger Penrose to Frank Wilzek to Tamburini’s sculpting light and the European Commission Program SciArt

Fabrizio Tamburini

Experiencing the change of paradigms science, art and mediatechnology – part 2 – perspectives for future research.

Cristina Fiordimela

The Investigation take advance of manifold  tools:  such as notational systems in notes, writings, images, performance  related to space  tracing the interferences to  text/images/body, beyond the  taxonomy in museography.

First examples start with the ’Exploratorium of San Francisco to Pasadena’s Symposium From Cybernetics to Museology, a Series of Talks and Performances Links Art and Science (2017).

4th Day (Sun, November 26, 2017): 11 am– 2 pm

Considerations about our common experiences in the ZKM’s Scientist in Residence Program, an example for all the interactive installation SOL ( Code – n ) and a instant laboratory to get in tune with dark matter .
