As a unique and innovative creative model, the a+s+cpn selection is designed with the aim to create, spread and maintain networks of artists and scientists from diverse fields and disciplines, by encouraging collaboration and development of joint projects realised through learning and experimentation. Uncertainty and dynamics of the process come from continuous multiplication, comparison and advancement of ideas and views of participants and collaborators. In the language of evolution, during the process, adaptive significance of all departures and errors is verified. In search of

This autumn, the sixth art+science program of the Center for Promotion of Science brings new and exciting content inspired by AI, at locations in Belgrade and Novi Sad, and on Monday, June 7, prior to the event, the initiation of the virtual platform artandscience.rs will take place. This platform shall encompass all the activities of the Center with regards to mergers of science and art, as well as news, events and open calls on a national, European and global level.
Aerosonar is a spatial audio installation which displays air pollution on a macro level in the micro environment of the exhibition space, at the same time emphasizing a human impact on air pollution. Musical composition of the installation allows the air pollution to be experienced largely through the sense of hearing, which is otherwise not the case. Human impact on the installation itself and alternating spatial conditions result in changes in the musical composition, which make visitors become aware of their impact. Greek /āero/ “air” Latin /sono/ “to make a noise, sound”, “to speak/utter”, “to emit sound”
AI/VI is an interdisciplinary pilot project that investigates the artificial intelligence and its roles in modern society. It is created as a pervasive mobile game that uncovers AI, and the accompanying problematics of how humans and AI are being shaped and transformed through their mutual relationship, communication, and use. The aim is to put players in the position to question human and algorithmic decision making and its future consequences.
Since 2014, CPN has been continuously working on the formation of a sustainable network that brings together scientists and artists, encourages their cooperation and the development of joint projects. a+s+cpn selection is the result of constant reflection on collaboration models and forms of cooperation between professionals from all fields of science and art. Through this program, CPN encourages and supports collaboration, creating new connections, moving or erasing boundaries between disciplines. This year, the focus was on the development of transdisciplinary projects
Project raises awareness and helps destigmatize anxiety disorders. The exploration of anxiety evolves through an interactive audio-visual installation, with audio testimonies of people who have once felt it strongly. While listening to the statements, visitors are in the mirror-circled room, an illusory infinite space, surrounded by the multiplied lights reflecting the differences in brain waves in a relaxed and aroused anxious state. They are asked to place a GSR device on their index finger in order to generate and record signals based on their emotional response to the story and the environment. The GSR responses are compared in order to explore how the experiences of anxiety influence the visitors and whether they respond to the same stimuli in a similar way.
