Open Code Exhibition

Zentrum für Kunst und Medien - ZKM Karlsruhe

May 2019

What kind of relationships can be established among Art and Neuroscience?
Mariano Sardón talked about some of his artistic processes among Art and Neuroscience he has been doing with the Argentinian neuroscientist Mariano Sigman since 2010.
He showed some examples around their production, opening his “artistic code” for exhibiting the way concepts, methods and materials are correlated between Art and Science. 
He went deeper in their way to work in collaboration in order to give some cues about the contexts for creativity and transdisciplinarity.
