Violeta López López receives Artist in Science Residence 2023


The "Artist-in-Science-Residence" program to take place again in 2023: "Kultur einer Digitalstadt", in cooperation with GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung, the European Space Operations Center (ESOC) and the Hessian Centre for Artificial Intelligence (hessian.AI), has once again awarded three scholarships for internationally renowned artists. The artistic jury and representatives of the cooperating institutes selected three scholarship holders from a total of 187 applications from 47 countries. Violeta López López convinced the jury with the proposal "HEAVY·METAL·VERSES" and will explore the universe in the lab in the interplay between physics and poetry in cooperation with GSI from 19 June to beginning of August 2023.

The artist wants to create an immersive interactive installation generating a poetic reinterpretation.“The opportunity to work and research at FAIR/GSI will allow me to delve into the hidden poetry of physics, the links that beat inside atoms and verses,” says Violeta López López.

GSI wants to promote interdisciplinary exchange and creativity together with Kultur einer Digitalstadt and the artist. The aim is to create new perspectives and inspire innovation in science and art. Through the artistic approach, complex scientific concepts can be communicated to a wider audience. During expert discussions, in the Open Lab and at the Final View, the research project of the residency can be experienced by all participants and the public.

The "Artist-in-Science-Residence" is supported by Kulturfonds Frankfurt Rhein-Main, Dr. Hans-Riegel-Stiftung Bonn, Wissenschaftsstadt Darmstadt and Digitalstadt. (KG/BP)
