Water is in the air*
This lecture will give an introduction to the understanding of connections and contexts of art – science – technology interaction and collaboration, with an emphasis on activities like establishing and connecting sound, nature and society. Significant and groundbreaking collaborations and the cross–pollination of knowledge from these fields will be presented by giving examples. During the lecture, Šebjanic will have a special focus on the encouragement of rethinking the human impact on the (under)water habitats. She will also show her projects: Aurelia 1+Hz and Aquatocene. Besides, she will talk about her involvement in Hackteria, and international biohacking – citizen science oriented practice.
Robertina Šebjanic and Hacteria
Robertina Šebjanic (Slovenia) is an internationally exhibited artist, combining art – technology – science. Her ideas and concepts are often realized in collaboration with others, through interdisciplinary and informal integration in her work. She is a member of Hackteria Network and Theremidi Orchestra. For her work Aurelia 1+Hz, she received an Honorary mention for interactive art+ 2016 at Prix Ars electronica. The AV performance Aurelia 1+Hz / proto viva sonification explores the phenomena of interspecies communication, sonification of the environment and the underwater acoustic / bioacoustics. The project Aquatocene investigates the phenomenon of underwater noise pollution caused by humankind in the world’s oceans and seas. As a community platform, Hackteria encourages the collaboration of scientists, hackers and artists to combine their expertise, share simple instructions to work with life-science technologies and cooperate on the organization of workshops, temporary labs, hack-sprints …
