Exponential Mindset: The Skills of an Exponentialist
Niki Ernst, Eveline Wandl-Vogt

A 4-Sessions dive deep into the Exponential Mindset. An interaction series to consider the SDGs from an exponential growth strategies perspective.

Future Humanity Journey

A day in 2040: what would our day look like in 20 years? Future Humanity Journey is an experimental workshop. Four innovators created a scenario of future humanity to better understand how humanity will develop and evolve.

create your world space tour: Hacking Humans for Space and STEAM in Space

In partnership with spaceEU, the create your world festival comes directly into your classroom. Under the title “create your world: space TOUR” we can offer you two popular workshops for free. The contents are about future issues as well as competencies such as critical thinking and solution-oriented action. Space serves as a source of inspiration and communication.

Meet the S+T+ARTS Community: Building Open Source Platforms
Joseph Klatt (US), Sören Lex (AT)

Precious Plastic and Precious Plastic Universe, started by industrial designer Dave Hakkens in 2013, is one of those platforms: focused on the reduction of plastic waste through sharing an open source toolkit of technologies and ideas, it has become a global movement of 80.000 people connected by the same passion and vision.

Meet the S+T+ARTS Community: Art & Science Collaborations
Ingeborg Reichle (AT), Michael Sauer (AT), Robertina Šebjanič (SI), Gjino Šutić (HR)

When artists, scientists and scientific research institutions join forces on collaborative projects, the collision of methods often leads to new and exciting perspectives for both the artistic and scientific practice.

Rethinking alive as material
Rūta Spelskytė (LT)

The toolkit is designed to rethink alive as material. To think of the ways we can use nature, create tools out of it, imagine or train plant and animal features, construct their development in the future, and on the other hand – how to take a moment to stop and just appreciate it.

The Birth of Venus
Brigita Kasperaitė (DE/LT)

While in the past electroconvulsive therapy was used in very questionable ways, we can admit one thing, the reality is questionable in itself. And while the artist Brigita Kasperaitė explores the natural and synthetic ways of electrical discharges and how they might affect the surroundings, she is also interested in knowing and experiencing that electricity is everywhere - as well as our bodies.

Workshop: Solidarity Through Sound and Time
Ivana Dama and Clinton Van Arnam

In this workshop, participants would have the unique chance to reconsider their ideas of what constitutes sound and music compositions. Throughout the day we are exposed to countless amounts of sounds and noises, but it is only valuable if we can isolate these specific sounds and separate their relationship from emory to their pure tonal structure.

Workshop: Pinecone Hygrometer, Seed Dispersal, and Fire Ecology
Helen Huang

In this lecture we will explore how seeding of plants respond to environmental triggers like fire and humidity changes. We will also learn some basic concepts in scientific research and how we can sense our environment through the observation of the plants around us.

Workshop: Psychobiotonic: Microbiome Anthropothagy
Clarissa Ribeiro

Imagine a fictional scenario in which you can choose one personality to ‘embody’ a time having access to encapsulated microbiome samples (mixed cultures i.e. microbial associations or communities) of donors that have specific personality types. “Transplanting the Self: microbiome anthropophagy” (2018-present) is a reflection on the limits of microbiome manipulation inviting the online audience to become ‘personality donors’ in a collaborative performance.

Workshop: Sidewalk Herbarium
Alvaro Azcarraga with Terry Huang

We will be reconnecting with our local environments by collecting and identifying plant specimens from your neighborhood/sidewalk.

Performance and Workshop: Calming the Sea - Sketch 2b
Christoph Killian, UCLA ArtSci Center Artist in Residence

We will play with multichannel near-simultaneity, exploiting transmission latencies and temporal offsets, experiencing destructive and constructive interferences, – overlapping, amplification and extinction of waves in a global disconcert.

Claudia Jacques and Victoria Vesna

This workshop will introduce you to a variety of issues around water bodies around the world. Participants will develop and add their stories and / or artwork or scientific research related to a stream, lake, sea, ocean. Communities will form around specific water bodies that will become guardians and share up to date information about the status.

Workshop: Mycelial Landscapes: How Fungi Shape the World and Take the Shape of the Future
Kaitlin Bryson

This workshop explores the incredible world of fungi from their ecology to their biochemistry and explores how these amazing organisms shape and make the world around us. We will also learn about how we can work with fungi helping them take shapes and forms for building sustainable futures. We will do a simple exercise of making mycelium hands to stretch our notions of touch and physicality during the time of the pandemic.

Workshop: Data Garden
Eli Joteva and Zeynep Abes

In this workshop you will learn the art of photogrammetry, volumetric collage and shared virtual spaces.

Workshop: Follow the Fibers: Weaving as a Method of Inquiry
Monica LoCascio, Artist and Member of ArtSci Collective

Fascia and Mycelium through the lens of Anni Albers and weaving

Workshop: Music and Quantum Mechanics
Dr. James Gimzewski

We explore the relationship between music specifically harmonic sound resonances and quantum mechanics. The Schrodinger equations which are used to describe zero point energy and energy quantization are similar to the solutions for a guitar string in one dimension called the particle in a box. In two dimensions equivalent to drum modes. The electrons in an atom are equivalent to three dimensional solutions. I also introduce quantum tunneling as leaky strings and provide examples in nanotechnology.

Workshop: Diffraction and Wave-Particle Duality and Imaging Techniques
Sam Lilak

This workshop invites you to understand the duality of nature and utilize its interactions to achieve atomic resolution. You will be introduced to scale, waves and wave-particle duality, optical microscopes and UV-Vis spectroscopy, electron microscopy and diffraction, atomic imaging and scanning probe microscopy.

Workshop: Houdini Software Intro
Debra Isaac

In this workshop, we will create a rocky 3D object, fracture and shatter it, and then emit particles with forces. Learn the power and flexibility of Houdini’s Procedural and non destructive node based 3d software that excels in using both raw data and generative art.
