RAW DATA is a project by the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with TRIUMF, Emily Carr University and Revised Projects, Vancouver, Canada. Curated by Koenig, Schild & Hufschmid.
Koenig, Schild & Hufschmid, artists-in-residence at TRIUMF, Canada´s National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics, Vancouver, invited eight artists to respond to a physics problem, passing and translating work across disciplines, culminating in a “RAW DATA. Artistic Transformation“ chain reaction. They formulated a model of collaboration by generating a collective, creative field that wove art and physics into a fabric of associations, images and metaphors.
Participating artists: Dennis Burke, Dr. Randy Lee Cutler, David Khang, Ingrid Koenig, Sonnet L´Abbé , Ben Reeves, Stefan Smulovitz and Suzi Webster.
Participating physicists: Dr. Anadi Canepa, Dr. Abhishek Kumar, Dr. Ania Kwiatkowski, Dr. Kendall Mahn, Dr. Tim Meyer, Dr. Chris Ruiz and Dr. Reda Tafirout.
