Oct-Nov 2019: Scientist in Residence @CSM

Prof. Kayoko Nohara and Associate Prof. Wataru Hijikata from Tokyo Tech will stay at Central Saint Martins, University of Arts London (CSM), as “Scientists in Residence” to take part in the Hacking Heart project.

The event is a ‘Hackathon’, a week-long project re-imagining heart research artistically by CSM arts students. They will collaborate with Dr. Thomas Iskratsch, School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary University of London, and another Scientist in Residence, Heather Barnett and Dr. Ulrike Oberlack, from CSM. The workshop will finish with a public symposium on Nov 8th, where the outcome will be demonstrated.

東工大から野原と土方亘先生がCSMに招聘され、Hacking Heartsプロジェクトにフル参加します。心臓をめぐる科学・工学研究をモチーフに、アートを専門とする学生たちがリサーチと制作を繰り広げます。ラストはパブリックシンポジウムで作品を公開、議論が行われる予定。何が起こったか…報告しますね。
