Transpositions: From Science to Art (and Back)


Stockholm, October 4-6, 2017


The Transpositions project is an artistic research project working with scientific data. Three artists, Gerhard Eckel, David Pirrò and Michael Schwab, have for the past three years investigated the possibility of generating new auditory and visual forms based on the analysis and transformation of data from four scientific fields: particle physics at CERN, cosmological surveys and simulations, genome biology, and biological neural network simulations. As a

second aim, the project also studies whether and how the new forms generated from this data are of scientific significance by asking the collaborating researchers to interpret the artistic outputs. By remaining true to the data while employing an artistic working method the project contributes to the development of a space for research that is shared between art and science. It asks: How can one form of knowledge be transposed into another? At what point is data pushed to the limits of representation?


The research event Transpositions: From science to art (and back) is a series of lectures, performances, symposia and discussions that aim to provide an overview of the Transpositions project and share the related work of invited guests. The three-day set of events spread across Stockholm brings concepts, data, artworks and people together to offer numerous opportunities to engage with transpositions between art and science in exhibitions, installations, performances, presentations, and discussions.
