RAW DATA Project

RAW DATA is a major interdisciplinary project that initiates a process of transformation between art and physics, bridging Canada and Germany. A chain reaction of art works is generated by translating a concrete problem from physics to four basic aesthetic media: sound, body, language and image. It is intended to host a discourse on questions about translation processes between art and physics in a so–called translation hub — a public workshop involving artists, physicists and academics. One focus will investigate the »practice of artistic transformation« and its relevancy in an interdisciplinary dialogue. What hybrid forms of knowledge are generated during this networked process?

Organized by Dr. Margit Schild, Ingrid Koenig, and Elvira Hufschmid in association with Emily Carr University, artists Dennis Burke, Randy Lee Cutler, David Khang, Ingrid Koenig, Sonnet L´Abbé, Ben Reeves, Stefan Smulovitz and Suzi Webster will work with international physics organizations beginning with TRIUMF, Canada’s National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics, to produce an exhibition, performance and a public workshop as a ‘Translation Hub’ from November 1 – 3, 2012.

Goethe Satellite@Vancouver is a project by the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with TRIUMF, Emily Carr University and Revised Projects. Curated by Ingrid Koenig, Dr.-Ing. Margit Schild, & Elvira Hufschmid (Vancouver/Berlin), Artists-in-Residence at TRIUMF, Canada’s National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics, Vancouver.  The goal of the Goethe Satellite is to facilitate unique projects where artists, organizations and collectives have the opportunity to collaborate, perform, and show work that expands current artistic practices.
