In cooperation with seven artistic & cultural institutions as well as scientific partners ESA–European Space Agency, CERN, the ESO–European Southern Observatory and Fraunhofer MEVIS, the European Digital Art and Science Network is an international initiative offering artists the chance to spend several weeks at a scientific partner’s institute and at the Ars Electronica Futurelab. The network aims to link up scientific aspects and ideas with approaches used in digital art. Fostering interdisciplinary work and intercultural exchange as well as gaining access to new target audiences are among its declared goals. There is also strong emphasis on art’s role as a catalyst in processes of social renewal. By creating images and narratives dealing with the potential risks and rewards inherent in technological and scientific development, artists exert an important influence on how our society comes to terms with these innovations.
