————————-
We will welcome Artists-in-Residence, artist duo Bull.Miletic, as they commence their semester long project at UC Berkeley as part of the Center for Science, Technology, Medicine & Society and the Arts Research Center (ARC) Art + Science Residency Program. Bull.Miletic will discuss their past work and proposed project “Aerial View in Motion”, and will talk about the connections they hope to make on our campus this fall!
“Aerial View in Motion” will take the image of the “blue planet” and Buckminster Fuller’s notion of “spaceship Earth” as a starting point to explore the relationships between the “objective” ortophotomapped representation of the Earth through visualized data sets and the affective volume-image of our planet as a vibrant ecosystem that “spins in space traveling 60,000 miles an hour, in the midst of rich non-human life as well as the intensive relations to other planets and the Sun”. “Aerial View in Motion” will thus focus on the recent surge of the aerial imaging technologies such as satellites and drones that has prompted discussions on what has come to emerge as a new visual paradigm.
About the Art + Science Residency Program: The Center for Science, Technology, Medicine & Society (CSTMS), in partnership with the Arts Research Center (ARC), is initiating an artist-in-residence program that will focus on nurturing art/technology/science/engineering exchanges at UC Berkeley, in the Bay Area, and across the region. The program will open with a pilot residency this fall (2017), featuring the artist duo Bull.Miletic: Synne T. Bull (University of Oslo, Norway) and Dragan Miletic (Norwegian University of Science and Technology). For more information, please read here.
