In my quest to bring together science and art in a new way, I am taking every opportunity to dive into the create world. This June I went to a 3-day digital arts festival that took place in Paris: OFFF International festival for the post-digital creation culture. This short video gives a good idea of the atmosphere at the festival, which was extremely interdisciplinary. There are lots of photos of the festival on Flickr.
I loved the atmosphere and the passion of both presenting artists and audience. Some artists were collaborating with scientists. One of them is Craig Ward a British typographer who collaborated with Frank Conrad, an immunologist of the University of Denver to create the cover of The Creative Review Annual 2010.
The whole experience was a great inspiration and motivation for me and I kept wondering where I could possible fit in there.
