“Field_Notes – Deep Time” art&science laboratory

Location: Kilpisjärvi Biological Station Lapland/Finland
Dates: 16-22.9.2013

“ Field_Notes – Deep Time” is a week long art&science field laboratory. It is organized by the Finnish Society of Bioart at the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station of the University of Helsinki in Lapland. Five working groups will develop, test and evaluate specific artistic approaches based on the interplay of art&science.

“Field_Notes – Deep Time” is in search of artistic and scientific responses to the dichotomy between human time-perception and comprehension, and the time of biological, environmental, and geological processes in which we are embedded. The local sub-Arctic nature, ecology, and geology, as well as the scientific environment and infrastructure of the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station will act as a catalyst for the work carried out.

Five working groups, hosted by Oron Catts, Antero Kare, Leena Valkeapaa, Tere Vaden, Elisabeth Ellsworth and Jamie Kruse, together with a team of six, will develop, test and evaluate specific interdisciplinary approaches in relation to the Deep Time theme.
