This post comes to you from Cultura21
â€œField_Notes â€“ Deep Timeâ€ is a week long art&science field laboratory organized by the Finnish Society of Bioart at the KilpisjÃ¤rvi Biological Station in Lapland/Finland. Five working groups, hosted by Oron Catts, Antero Kare, Leena Valkeapaa, Tere Vaden, Elisabeth Ellsworth and Jamie Kruse, together with a team of five, will develop, test and evaluate specific interdisciplinary approaches in relation to the â€œDeep Timeâ€ theme.
â€œField_Notes â€“ Deep Timeâ€ is in search of artistic and scientific responses to the dichotomy between human time-perception and comprehension, and the time of biological, environmental, and geological processes in which we are embedded. The local sub-Arctic nature, ecology, and geology, as well as the scientific environment and infrastructure of the KilpisjÃ¤rvi Biological Station will act as a catalyst for the work carried out.
Dates and places:
15th â€“ 22nd September 2013, field laboratory at the KilpisjÃ¤rvi
23rd, 24th of September 2013, conference in Helsinki
The organizers are looking for 25 artists, scientists and practitioners, who are interested to develop, collaborate and work in one of the below mentioned groups.
