science_ technology_ society at Delfina Foundation, Season 1

Season 1 of science_technology_society residency programme at Delfina Foundation supported contemporary interdisciplinary approaches that consider, intervene in, and speculate on the world in which we live and its possible futures. Supported by Gaia Art Foundation, the residency provided a focused environment to foster collaborations between artists and other practitioners, incubating ideas and supporting the development of new projects aiming to make a tangible impact on our lives.

The first season of science_technology_society took place in autumn 2019, exploring experiments with environmental data; how the lived experience can be digitally captured; and the relationship between technology and social structures.

Serving as a hub for the season’s evolving programme, the project space at Delfina was transformed by PUP Architects to accommodate public and private discussions, presentations, workshops and experimentation around the pressing issues of our times.

Participants in Season 1 of science_technology_society included: Salik Ansari, Burak Arikan, Kyriaki Goni, Jeppe Ugelvig, Jaro Varga, Victoria Scott, Matterlurgy, Nick Laessing and Gary Zhexi Zhang.
