Project

Art & Science. Creating new possibilities through collaboration, residencies, and interventions.

Goal: In this book project I will present cases and processes of art & science collaboration, elaborate on knowledge, innovation and creation processes, and give insights in management of collaboration tools.

How can artist-scientist collaboration be of value to science and technology organizations? This innovative book is one of the first to address this question and the emerging field of art-science collaboration through an organizational and managerial lens. With extensive experience collaborating with and advising institutions to develop artist in residency programs, the author highlights how art-science collaboration is such a powerful opportunity for forward-thinking consultants, managers and institutions. Using real-life examples alongside cutting edge research, this book presents a number of cases where these interactions have fostered creativity and led to heightened innovation and value for organizations. As well as creating a blueprint for successful partnerships it provides insights into the managerial and practical issues when creating art-science programs. Invaluable to scholars and practitioners interested in the potential of art-science collaboration, the reader will be shown how to take an innovative approach to creativity in their organization or research, and the ways in which art-science collaborations can mutually benefit artists, scientists and companies alike.

This is a chapter of my book "Creating ArtScience Collaboration - Bringing Value to Organizations" Find the book here: https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9783030045487 Laying down the theoretical foundations of artscience collaboration, it is first necessary to define collaboration. Most scholars agree that collaboration is a well-defined relationship between two or more parties (organizations or individuals) that is mutually beneficial. The involved parties co-develop structures and strategies, are committed to a common goal, share responsibility, have mutual authority and accountability for success, and thus share outcomes and rewards (Mattessich and Monsey 1992). Interdisciplinary collaboration can be understood as the coordinated relationship between two or more parties who are trained in different disciplines to reach a shared goal. These collaborations can be designed more instrumentally and aim at solving a shared goal by contributing different skills and knowledge sets, but they can be also more conceptual and aim at the development of a joint field that involves practices and knowledge from the respective fields of the partners.
This is a chapter of my book "Creating ArtScience Collaboration - Bringing Value to Organizations" Find the book here: https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9783030045487 Artscience collaborations can enrich underlying assumptions and perspectives on the own work processes, theories, data, projects, and the questions that are asked. The experience of unknown situations, new contextual embedding of the work, diverse information, and resources contribute essentially to this development. But artists and scientists are trained in working with their data and know how to look in order to see, to handle their tools and materials, and to approach questions to reduce complexity of situations. They make sense of these situations and the information at hands. What if somebody contributes a new perspective? Is it trustworthy? Does it fit into the known understanding of the world? Does it make sense? A collision of worlds like art and science, a collision of identities like artists and scientists, induces ambiguity, dissonance, and uncertainty. This collides with previous understanding of situations, and engagement with this situation triggers a sensemaking process to analyze the experience. This process enriches the previous understanding or even leads it to shift.
This is a chapter of my book "Creating ArtScience Collaboration - Bringing Value to Organizations" Find the book here: https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9783030045487 Bringing artscience collaboration to life involves more than creating a program and facilitating it. With the right mindset, an interesting artscience program that is well-embedded in an organization, and motivated individuals, there are still additional conditions to think of that can lead to misunderstanding or possible pitfalls. Second, the exchange has been argued as valuable because of the interdisciplinary exchange and process between artists and scientists, and STEAM initiatives in education can help to foster this exchange and a basic understanding of its value. This implies an important role of the profession and comprehensive experiences outside the profession to refine understanding, practices, and learn from new perspectives. Everybody collaborating and putting work into this is bound to institutional mechanisms of their own fields. Arguing for the value-added of artscience project in the own disciplinary realm can be difficult, as it involves outcomes that push the borders of a field and thus are difficult to evaluate in the organizational, scientific, and artistic realm. There is still potential to create additional and new ways of presentation and evaluation, but a first step is to recognize current frameworks and needs.

I had the pleasure to present a few ideas that I elaborate on in the book in a TEDx talk.

The project is moving forward, so many interesting projects and cases to analyze, and I'm just finalizing the theoretical part of the book. And the hand-in date of the manuscript is set, it is in summer.
