Dear Spectrites,

September is bringing quite a lot of activities for the FEAT team. Looking
forward to seeing you at one of them.



*> FEAT Panel at Ars Electronica*

*Saturday September 9th at 3 pm*

Location: Post City, FIS Stage

*Artists and scientists collaborating, what works and what not – a

What can be created together when artists are invited to work in
techno-scientific environments such as High Performance Computing (HPC),
quantum physics, genetic research and genome editing? What are the kinds of
questions that are asked when artists and scientists meet in laboratories,
studios, offices or university canteens? What are the best ways of
communicating and in what ways can productive misunderstandings between
artists and scientists lead to interesting new raw materials and forms of
inspiration for artists and scientists?

Future Emerging Arts & Technologies is a project where six artists were
given a nine month period to work in the inner laboratories of EU funded
Future Emerging Technologies (FET) programmes, ranging from quantum
physics, nuclear clocks and high performance computing to gene regulation,
carbon capture and underwater robots.

During this panel we will discuss, what happened during these
collaborations and how the artists and scientists communicated. We will
discuss the issues and challenges that impacted the collaborations and why
they proved to be so significant for all involved. Including all the
fruitfull 'mistakes', misunderstandings, miscommuncations as well as the

Panelists include: Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand, Anna Dumitriu,
Spela Petric and Miha Tursic, Claudia Schnugg, Ingeborg Reichle, Erich
Prem, Lucas Evers, and Mark Coeckelbergh.


*> Future Emerging Art & Technology at BOZAR, Brussels*

*September 14th - 30th 2017*

Rue Ravenstein 23, Brussels

FEAT and BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts are pleased to present FUTURE EMERGING
ART AND TECHNOLOGY. The exhibition includes artworks by boredomresearch,
Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand, Anna Dumitriu, Špela Petrič &
MihaTuršič, Semiconductor, and Pinar Yoldas, created through in-depth
embedded residencies at the forefront of new research in EU Future Emerging
Technology (FET) projects working side-by side with scientists.



*> Oxford Museum of the History of Science: Anna Dumitriu Solo Exhibition*

*28 September 2017 - 18 March 2018*

Opening 26th of September, 6 pm

Museum of the History of Science, Oxford, UK

*BIOART AND BACTERIA: an artistic journey through antibiotics and the
microbial world*

The exhibition at the Museum of the History of Science includes most of the
artist key pieces and explores themes around infectious diseases,
antibiotic resistance, genomics, and synthetic biology, including her
recent work created within the FEAT residency "Make Do and Mend", which is
inspired by the museum's collection and uses CRISPR gene editing in its
creation and a never before exhibited piece entitled "Hypersymbiotics".
