Art and Science – how do these 2 worlds communicate with each other, and can this communication be captured into an experience?
The AHA festival’s (www.ahafestival.se) ‘Phd printer’ performance looks into alternative forms of communicating ongoing Phd research at Chalmers and Gothenburg University. Vague Research Studios have chosen 3 current PhD research projects, and translate these into an ongoing afternoon experience.
Vague Research Studios PhD printer consists of a performative sound and material workshop for students where the music from the video “The children, the alcoholics and the artists” produces diverse sounds and spaces. Two guides will be in conversation with PhD students, other researchers and the audience and together launch the printer based on both artistic, technical, social and acoustic research categories.
Vague research Studios: Lena T H Berglin and Kajsa G. Eriksson
