Exhibition Visualising Research
Within the 9. Forum Wissenschaftskommunikation (Conference for Science Communication) the BGHS presents its second Art&Science-Project Visualising Research in cooperation with the Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences.
The main goal of the project is to bring Art and Science in a transdisciplinary dialogue, to open up new ways of science communication. The visualizations show how research can be transferred into art projects and how these visualizations "offer the opportunity to intensify and encourage the dialogue between science and the interested public" say Thomas Abel (Coordinator for Science Communication at the BGHS) and Prof. Nils Hoff (Professor for Graphic Design and Illustration at the Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences), who organised and managed the project.
Most important was the dialogue between the doctoral researchers of the BGHS and the BA/MA students of the design department at Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences. They worked together in seven project teams. In the first step the doctoral researchers presented their dissertation projects to the artists. In the second step the artists interpreted the the projects with illustrations.
The transdisciplinary work not only offered the participants an opportunity to start into an interesting dialogue but also opened up new perspectives. According to Prof. Nils Hoff the project shows further potential for future cooperations: “A promising start is made”.
