MindSpaces Residency Artists

MindSpaces is a 3-year research project financed by the European Commission STARTS/Lighthouse projects started on Jan 1th 2019. To encourage collaboration of research projects and artists STARTS funds ‘STARTS residencies’ of artists in technology institutions and of scientists and technologists in studio of artists. In this project, artists, scientists, architects, engineers and technology experts closely collaborate under a novel working model scheme to propose innovative designs to address societal challenges faced by cities as they expand, and the evolving needs in functionality and emotional resonance of modern day workplace and housing interiors. Art has the capacity to transcend established theoretical and conceptual frames and act in cross-disciplinary ways, as it provides space for what is called as ‘lateral’ thinking, that is to address issues with an ‘out of the box’ approach.

MindSpaces selected 6 artists through a series of two open calls for artists. The selected MindSpaces artists in residence are presented below.
