Studies on the nature of life and the limits of human capabilities go beyond academic categories. Like many other "scientific" issues, they also form the basis of the development of culture and require wider attention. Art&Science is a good example. It is an art practice which use various conceptual foundations, research methods and technological approaches in the art work production. Do artists who turn to scientific research create new ways of looking at the world? Do they reveal new perspectives on research, related processes, and relationship with society? Are they trying to find new ways to involve a viewer into their research? Dmitry Bulatov, the curator of the Baltic branch of The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts will discuss various aspects of cultural and artistic activity at the intersection of art and science.
