CONFERENCES AND PANELS

Panel talk on Art and Science (Ohme)

The panel will bring in different points of view on the topic of art and science collaborations, to tackle questions such as what does it mean to build bridges between artistic and scientific disciplines, especially in this society of hyper specialization and fragmentation? What does it make a collaboration between artist and scientist successful? How to present the outcomes of this collaborations to our audiences, playing the key role of mediators in sensible and meaningful way?

The goal is to offer a moment of reflection about a topic that is living a particularly “hype” moment, but it is often misinterpreted and misunderstood: with this panel talk, we aim at contributing in “dispelling the fog” and shed a light on the how and why these collaborations, partnership and encounters are beneficiary for all parties involved as well as for the general public.

Speakers: Eric Kluitenberg, Anne-Marie Maes, Lorenzo Gerbi, Jennifer Wong

Case study : Le Motel and Antoine De Schuyter

Le Motel is a producer and graphic designer based in Brussels.

This love for eclectism alos reflects in the people he collaborates with such as Roméo Elvis, YellowStraps, Clap! Clap! Or recently Veence Hanao. Le Motel is working with visual artist Antoine de Schuyter to present an A/V show.

Speakers: Fabien Leclercq, Antoine De Schuyter

Case study: Elèves en Liberté

A unique experience of virtual reality sound. Based on a prototype developed for the experiment by the studio Demute in Brussels, this technology called Room Scale Augmented Audio allows, with a simple headphone on the ears, to immerse itself in a sound universe in 3 dimensions and interact with him. It will therefore be proposed to visitors to enter a classroom that will virtually come alive through the headset, and to interact physically with the sound elements that will be offered to them.

Speakers: Wouter Gordts (Demute), Patrick Séverin (HorsZone)

Case Study : Bruxelles, The Grand Place to Be

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the inscription of the Grand-Place of Brussels on the UNESCO World Heritage List, the Museum of the City of Brussels and the Historical Heritage Cell offer an unprecedented exhibition on this emblematic site of Brussels architecture.

An unprecedented virtual reality experience: the bombing of the Grand-Place in 1695. As in a machine to go back in time, the user finds himself in the 17th century square. He can observe the different houses, the Town Hall, the King's House ... buildings very different from those he could see before entering the museum. Suddenly, a cannonball falls on the pavement, the shock is intense. There, a wooden house is burning ... Night falls, ashes fly. The user really lives the bombing of 1695.

Speaker: Vinciane Godfrind (Musée de la Ville de Bruxelles)
