Fusing Lab and Gallery : Device Art in Japan and International Nano Art Paperback / softback
Part of the Image series
Why do Japanese artists team up with engineers in order to create so-called "Device Art"?
What is a nanoscientist's motivation in approaching the artworld?
In the past few years, there has been a remarkable increase in attempts to foster the exchange between art, technology, and science -- an exchange taking place in academies, museums, or even in research laboratories.
Media art has proven especially important in the dialogue between these cultural fields.
This book is a contribution to the current debate on "art & science", interdisciplinarity, and the discourse of innovation.
It critically assesses artistic positions that appear as the ongoing attempt to localise art's position within technological and societal change between now and the future.
