Section: A

CRN: 7381

Credits: 4

The Art-Science class explores the interplay between art, science and technology – from visual art to bioart to performance art. Artists have always offered commentary on science and technology, and have shaped public perception and consumption of new advances – be it through the visual medium, on stage or via music. More and more artists are also incorporating latest science and technology within their toolkit – from gene edited paintings to immersive performances. This course will explore the various intersections of Art, Science and Technology and offer a view into the works of artists and performers who are at the forefront of the field. The course aims to look the world around us from differing perspectives, with the aid of technology, biological phenomena and artistic eye. The interplay between the art, artist and the audience will be examined with relation to personhood, intersections and emotions.The course will also delve into how the scientific process is similar to artistic breakthroughs and that, fundamentally, both grapple with identical questions of the nature of reality. Ethical issues that emerge at the intersection of art-science boundaries and the moral dilemma faced by artists, performers and scientists will be addressed
