  • Artists have a chaotic way of workingare very emotionalare creating their art in their studioare far away from real worldare very creativeare not logicdo the art for themselves and that makes them happy
  • As the famous engineer, visionary and comprehensive designer Richard Buckminster Fuller taught and practiced how to connect the different worlds – the one of science and the one of the arts – we present a number of activities herein in order to initiate and conduct an ESA supported arts initiative (EAI – ESA Arts Initiative).
  • The preliminary findings and consensus of the team was that establishing and sustaining a transdisciplinary professional community consisting of ESA representatives, scientists and artists would fuel knowledge transfer, and mutual inspiration towards mutually beneficial <>.
  • PREFERABLE FROM THE VIEW OF THE ARTISTSArtist enters into close contact with and is inspired by various ESA exponentsArtist develops a project in cooperation with ESA exponentsArtist receives access to ESA personnel, which is otherwise hard or impossible to reachArtist is allowed to visit / get to know / use ESA infrastructure
  • Support a variety of possibilities for artists and scientists to collaborateSolo (Individual research / work)Tandem (Concerted development, based on a face-to-face conversation between an artist and an ESA scientist)Cluster (Concerns mutual work of group activities)Strategic Consultant artists and persons from the cultural sectors are embedded into the scientific discourse to specify cultural policies)
  • DisseminationPublications (ESA Arts Initiative Publication Series, co-branding with an art-magazine, scientific publications)Collaboration with Science community (e.g. poster sessions, abstract submissions, presentations)Exhibitions (local and global)Website within the ESA website, ESA social mediA
  • ImpactESA will multiply the platforms and audiences ESA will additionally be perceived as a culturally committed organization (example: CERN)ESA will receive increase of being mentioned in different kind of media> ESA will be more connected
  • Funding provided by ESANo cost option through brandingIn-kind options through existing infrastructuresFinanced options through mechanisms already in placeFinanced options through new activities to be installedPossible in-house funding mechanismsESA Arts FundPercent for Arts : a percentage of a permille of all ESA science project budgets to finance EAIESA-Young Graduate Trainee Programme (YGT)External funding providedNational government grants (for citizens of member states)European science foundation (collaboration for people with scientific background)European commission (cultural programs, science and society)Private art foundationsOther scholarships / grants
  • Projects which are pre-imagined by the artist and implemented with / by ESA exponents. (Ono - Space Musical Instruments, Waldvogel - The earth turns without me)Artworks which use ESA results as starting point, aesthetic guide or inspiration.(Pelhjan – Makrolab, Roth - From the Distant Past)Artworks which use ESA infrastructure as generating agent (Pelhjan – Makrolab, Pitts - Singular Oscillations, Waldvogel - The earth turns without me)Artworks which contribute to ESA projects.

  • TOWARDS A COOPERATION BETWEEN THE ARTS, SPACE SCIENCE RESEARCH AND THE EUROPEAN SPACE AGENCY: PRELIMINARY FINDINGS OF THE ESA TOPICAL TEAM ARTS & SCIENCE ETTAS CoChairs: Dr. Barbara Imhof, Liquifer Systems Group (LSG), Austria, bimhof@liquifer.at Mr. Christian Waldvogel, Switzerland, hochnebel@waldvogel.com Dr. J. Michelle Kotler, University of Leiden, The Netherlands, jmichellekotler@gmail.com Dr. Sarah Jane Pell, ARTi Aquabatics, Australia, research@sarahjanepell.com Prof. Marko Peljhan, Interdisciplinary Studies: Art, Science, Technology, Performance, Digital Media and Space Art, University of California Santa Barbara, US peljhan@arts.ucsb.edu European Space Agency Topical Team Arts & Science (ETTAS) 2013
  • “Only minds can conduct science and produce art.” (Richard Buckminster Fuller, 1978) European Space Agency Topical Team Arts & Science (ETTAS) 2013
  • ETTAS = Artists, curators, scientists, philosophers, engineers The ESA TOPICAL TEAM ARTS & SCIENCE European Space Agency Topical Team Arts & Science (ETTAS) 2013
  • “establishing and sustaining a transdisciplinary professional community consisting of ESA representatives, engineers, scientists and artists that would fuel knowledge transfer, and mutual inspiration towards mutually beneficial discovery.” The ESA TOPICAL TEAM ARTS & SCIENCE ETTAS 2011 European Space Agency Topical Team Arts & Science (ETTAS) 2013
  • Benefits Formats of cooperation Suggestions for Art Initiatives Topical Team Platform www.esaartscience.com The ESA TOPICAL TEAM ARTS & SCIENCE workshop report: European Space Agency Topical Team Arts & Science (ETTAS) 2013
  • BENEFITS TO SCIENTISTS and ENGINEERSInternally: different perspective on own work might stimulate new views and ideas, and communicate the scientific findings amongst different scientific or engineering communities within ESA. Externally: publicity, broad impact, new audiences, positive connotation, different perspective of ownership amongst citizens, collective participation. ESA scientists could profit from the artists’ work visualizing and contextualizing their scientific findings As with all explorations, the discovery of new and unexpected results can be expected. The ESA TOPICAL TEAM ARTS & SCIENCE report: European Space Agency Topical Team Arts & Science (ETTAS) 2013
  • The ESA TOPICAL TEAM ARTS & SCIENCE report: Possibility to learn from ESA representatives expertise. Add to the field of arts-based research, thus strengthen this field of artistic operation and contribute space topics to the academic community from the cultural perspective. Ability to have artworks realized (or, in some cases, realize themselves) in otherwise inaccessible environments: ESA laboratories, simulators, Antarctica, ISS, deep space BENEFITS TO ARTISTS European Space Agency Topical Team Arts & Science (ETTAS) 2013
  • COOPERATION FORMAT The ESA TOPICAL TEAM ARTS & SCIENCE report: European Space Agency Topical Team Arts & Science (ETTAS) 2013 Artists are exposed to ESA infrastructure, operations and people. Scientists are exposed to artist environment and mindset. ESA provides support in implementing artistic work using their Earth and Space infrastructure. Artists provide reflections on ESA’s work for the public and new audiences.
  • Artist enters into close contact with and is inspired by various ESA exponents. Artist develops a project in cooperation with ESA exponents. Artist receives access to ESA personnel, which is otherwise hard or impossible to reach. Artist is allowed to visit / get to know / use ESA infrastructure. The ESA TOPICAL TEAM ARTS & SCIENCE report: ARTIST PREFERENCE European Space Agency Topical Team Arts & Science (ETTAS) 2013
  • A variety of possibilities for artists and scientists to collaborate The ESA TOPICAL TEAM ARTS & SCIENCE report: TERMS OF ENGAGEMENT SOLO TANDEM CLUSTER STRATEGIC CONSULTANCY European Space Agency Topical Team Arts & Science (ETTAS) 2013
  • TYPES OF COOPERATION The ESA TOPICAL TEAM ARTS & SCIENCE report: 1.Unsolicited project OR Project as a reaction to an open / invited call 2.Residency 3.Fellowship Cross-over criteria, e.g. standard of collaboration ethics, legal aspects (IPR) European Space Agency Topical Team Arts & Science (ETTAS) 2013
