Forward from Roger Malina: 

IMERA, the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies has announced a new
call for Residencies (to start in early 2011): http://www.imera.fr/

The deadline is April 15, 2010. Details of the call are available at :

http://www.imera.fr/index.php/en/becoming-a-fellow/applications.html

I am co chair of the IMERA ASIL (Art Science Instrumentations Languages)
initiative http://www.imera.fr/

at IMERA and am happy to discuss the residency program with interested
artists. Drop me an email at [log in to unmask]


You will see from the imera residents to date that a number of art science
research programs are under way:

http://www.imera.fr/index.php/en/the-fellows/2009-2010.html

We also recently accepted the residency proposal of artist Mohammed Youssef
from Alexandria, Egypt who works on movement and simulation.

IMERA residencies are research residencies (not for production of art work=
but IMERA can help  connect with organisations whose purpose this is) and the goal is to help
set up collaborations between imera residents and local science laboratories (or
arts collaborations for scientists resident at IMERA)

Here is a general statement of purpose: (see a list of possible - but not
exclusive -- topics at the end)

roger malina


IMERA seeks to contribute to the construction of new types of
inter-disciplinarity which are driven by the changes in our societies as
well as by new scientific discoveries and understanding. IMERA seeks to do
this through the research activities of the IMERA residents in collaboration
with scholars, researchers and artists in the region.

IMERA has at its heart a concern about the Human Condition of the Sciences :

The starting point can be the sciences, and the relationship between human
creativity and confrontation with demonstration or experiment.

Or one can unpack how science is inserted into the human situation 
(via its
theories, models and technologies): understanding how the societal
interaction modifies and integrates the results of scientific research, and
how its results, and institutions are incorporated into the developing
issues and history of society.

With a scientific starting point, for example: the mathematician wonders
about the origin of ideas in mathematics; the biologist confronts the
ethical constraints of experimentation "in vivo"; the astronomer worries
about the dominant components of the universe are inaccessible to current
scientific understanding; the climate scientist has to anticipate the social
impact of the variety of scenarios and the human situation faced with
climate change; the scientists who are aware of the esthetic and ethical
implications of their work must confront the human condition of the sciences

If we look at the insertion of science in society: the physicist must
consider the institutional impact of centralized forms of energy production
(one day fusion power?); the economists are confronted with the way that
their models are applied by economic institutions, which are based on
idealized models of human behavior; historians are confronted with the way
that they contextualized the testimony of witnesses, and how the media will
selectively use only portions of their analyses. The artists who establish
new modes of interaction between scientific understanding and its cultural
reception must understand the varieties of human context and perception.

Each researcher must define from their own sense of the internal and
external constraints on their own work,their perspective on the human
condition of the sciences.

Some of the topics which are being discussed by IMERA in 2010 include :
- human/non human
- crisis/risk/anxiety
- regulation
- complex networks
- metamorphosis
- fragile seas, worlds in balance

These topics are mentioned to indicate only some of the current interests.
Proposers are free to propose their own topics, connected with the overall goals
of IMERA.
