Abstract

The FEAT initiative organized and studied residencies of leading international artists in European Future and Emerging Technology projects. During the residencies, the artists closely collaborated with engineers and scientists on fundamental research in visionary areas of novel technologies, not solely as an artistic endeavor, but also to investigate effects of artistic engagement on technoscience. Effects of the collaboration are visible on many levels, including addressing fundamental questions about the technoscientific project objectives, ethical aspects and the aesthetics of scientific experiments. Interactions also resulted in long-term collaborations and opportunities for scientists to engage with artists in a shared effort to uncover truth.
