Welcome to our ASTER project!
This project is led by a dedicated team from Art the Science, a group of SciArt researchers and creators in Seville, Spain. As our commitment to support the SciArt community, we provide a platform for creators working within this emerging genre to share their practice with an international audience.
The content of our project is divided into four main categories:
Artists: these days, it is not uncommon for creators to self-identify as scientists and vice versa. Therefore, the term refers to anyone influenced by science to create works of art.
Creations: works of art or exhibitions inspired by science.
Resources: scientific seeds, own master’s degree, collaborative space, creative tools,
Hackathon: creative meetings.
Impact: exhibitions/congresses/publications/media/doctoral theses linked to the project and dedicated to the promotion of scientific art.
The ASTER project was born from the idea of designing a synergistic STEAM and SciArt collaboration and reflecting on it in a collaborative scenario using IMS-LD.
Our vision and mission
→ Research and knowledge transfer
→ Dissemination in international academia
→ Facilitate communication and creation of ideas from the fusion of art, science, technology and engineering.
→ Participation in the events of the project
→ Our website is a collaborative space
→ Scientific production
