Art, Science, and Methods: November Theme of the Month

Two recent events ask how art deals with science, moving beyond the
debates about "two worlds" to aim for a more integrated understanding.
In October in London the new Institute for the Converging Arts and
Sciences at University of Greenwich asked what happens "When Art met
the Web-Sciences"
<http://www.gre.ac.uk/pr/articles/latest/a1742-sketching-the-future>.
In November in Melbourne, the Super Human symposium, curatorial
masterclass and exhibition organised by ANAT 
<http://www.superhuman.org.au/> addresses
the themes of Augmentation, Cognition and Nanoscale Interventions
within the field of art, and includes questions of how scientific and
artistic bodies of knowledge intersect with human, social bodies.

This month's theme invites event guests from both events to muse on a
common theme as it relates to curating art:  Building on the methods
for cross-disciplinary or inter-disciplinary art production, can there
also be cross-disciplinary or inter-disciplinary curating? Jon Ippolito
and Joline Blais have argued that a long term 'research approach'
related to science and technology processes is one of the great
strengths of new media art - would list members agree?

Previous CRUMB themes which might be useful in this musing are:
2002 August theme:  Art and Science Collaborations
2003 July theme: Formal Research
2004 February theme: Formal Research 2
2008 December theme: Curating responsive art from bodily input
