Центар за промоцију науке у 2023. години наставља да организује бројне активности које истражују динамични међупростор науке и уметности и комуницирају научне и технолошке теме и њихов утицај на друштво и животну средину. У оквиру осме art+science манифестације Центар за промоцију науке објављује позив за предлоге уметничко-истраживачких пројеката, који ће бити отворен до 24. фебруара 2023. године. Ауторке и аутори одабраног предлога радиће од марта до септембра 2023. године на развоју и продукцији

Aerosonar is a spatial audio installation that displays air pollution in the exhibition space through musical composition. 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.
It all started with a first flush, or some would say, before the actual flush. A small miscellaneous moment and lack of attention. And so the Fatberg was born from the depths of human ignorance in the depth of the sewer pipe.
From the very beginning of the a+s+cpn selection, the goal was to think about, practicaly adopt and constantly test the modalities of collaborative work that connects science and art, and on the basis of which art+science works are created. Initiating and establishing true cooperation between actors from the artistic, scientific and technological spheres requires openness, commitment and a research spirit. In this process, questions are asked and answers are sought using the perspectives and knowledge of all parties involved. The a+s+cpn selection is a highly dynamic process within the Center's art+science program, based on a network of diverse collaborators, through which creators of younger generations are encouraged and gradually included.
Ekotopie brings together several different works (a smart house, a radio station and a catalog of the possible) that try to synthesize scientific and artistic knowledge and visions. Devised as a space for speculative knitting on the basis of the already observed problems of the Capitalocene (mass production, pollution, inequality, dealing with unsustainable habits such as excessive shopping, unbalanced distribution of resources, excessive production and exploitation of nature), this ambient installation opens us up to possible visions of the application of existing mechanisms and knowledge to deal with the perceived problems. Designed as a tactile and sensory experience, it becomes the discursive space of the other.
Šesto izdanje art+science programa Centra za promociju nauke, pod sloganom „Svetovi veštačke inteligencije“, održano je od 23. septembra do 23. oktobra, u Muzeju nauke i tehnike u Beogradu, galeriji Instituta Servantes i Naučnom klubu Centra za promociju nauke. Manifestacija art+science tokom septembra i oktobra publici u Beogradu predstavila je 13 radova nastalih kroz interdisciplinarnu saradnju umetnika, naučnika i drugih aktera, koji osvetljavaju i preispituju neke od najvažnijih tema današnjice kroz
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.
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.
Ever since the beginning of time, the deep emotional bonds have been inevitably created between humans and animals whenever they interact, and the relationship between scientists and laboratory animals is no exception. “Sacrifices for the greater good” is the sincerest symbiosis of science and art, which is precisely why it can attempt to evoke the difficult and moving symbiosis that arises between scientists and laboratory animals. We want to show you this relationship in its barest form, with the utmost respect for the animals, that have indebted us so much.
“... Remember me by…” represents an interactive light installation inspired by the research on the process of dementia. Scientific results point to the possibility that no memory is forever lost, but instead becomes inaccessible due to the loss of connections among the nerve cells. The piece explores the relationship and emotional connection with the personal memories, through an intimate experience created to prompt self-reflection, and ask the question as to how much our identity depends on these memories. The installation itself uses our need to be remembered and become a part of someone’s memories.
