The contribution of artistic creativity fosters thinking outside the box, and becomes an important ingredient in research groups. The increasing complexity in different disciplines leads us to think of the interdisciplinary as a fundamental tool to generate a synergistic effect, and art ―which has the quality of taking matter one step further, to the future― cannot be absent. This Garden hopes to sensitize us on our human condition and our relationship to the Earth Gaia, deepening the journey of discovery around The Nature of our Nature.

The Nature of our Nature

The contribution of artistic creativity fosters thinking outside the box, and becomes an important ingredient in research groups. The increasing complexity in different disciplines leads us to think of the interdisciplinary as a fundamental tool to generate a synergistic effect, and art cannot be absent.

This is why Rabdomante and Glaciator are confronted by a fundamental challenge in a Dialogue Between Two Deserts. Two different places, two different spaces and purposes, joined by one philosophical vision: how can art provide a new vision of the human being through technology?

The Latinamerican Bioarte Lab (LatBioLab) reviews more than 12 years of bioart in Argentina. From The Biosphere Project, a simple way to show the world ecosytem,  to Colony, which connects technology with biology, through Cellular Seeds – Inexorable Futures, which generates a new kind of „tech-life“.

The Complex Thoughts Lab questions us about what we‘ve learned from COVID-19. Is this crisis an opportunity to think about a new society?  Students from UAI University (Universidad Abierta Interamericana) and the University of Puerto Rico express different ideas to shape a new world model for future generations.

This garden hopes to sensitize us on our human condition and our relationship to the Earth Gaia, deepening the journey of discovery around The Nature of our Nature.
