The Brucknerhaus will be hosting Prix Forum I – Hybrid Art. More than any other Prix Ars Electronica category, Hybrid Art is defined by the interaction of art and science. Artist Oron Catts (AU), recipient of the first Golden Nica in this category in 2007, has been working intensively since the 1990s on cooperation models involving art and science. He will report on his experiences and then moderate a forum of Hybrid Art prizewinners.

Moderated by Oron Catts (AU)


Ars Electronica Center, Deep Space

15:00 – 16:00: LHC – Large Hadron Collider: Book Launch and Talk
17:00 – 18:00: Inside CERN

The focus on CERN continues in Deep Space at the Ars Electronica Center with the presentation of a spectacular new book in which Rolf Heuer (DE/CH), Franzobel (AT) and Peter Ginter (DE) portray CERN in texts and photos. Then, talks by CERN scientists will give up-close, inside looks at life and research there.

Oron Catts (AU) has been a researcher at The University of Western Australia since 1996 and was a Research Fellow at the Tissue Engineering and Organ Fabrication Laboratory at Harvard Medical School. In 2000 he co-founded SymbioticA, an artistic research laboratory at The University of Western Australia.
Art Orienté Objet (FR) was formed by Marion Laval-Jeantet and Benoît Mangin (FR) who came together in 1991. They are fascinated by the sciences of life in general and of behavior in particular and have produced several poetic and surprising projects. Their work takes on various aesthetic forms (installations, objects, videos, and/or photographs).
Tuur van Balen (BE) uses design to explore the political implications of emerging technologies. Through designing and experimenting with new interactions, he constructs thought-provoking new realities. Since 2008, Tuur has been working on bringing design into the world of synthetic biology and vice versa.
Christin Lahr (DE) lives and works as an artist, curator and professor of media art in Berlin and Leipzi. Since 2001, she is a professor of media art at the Hochschule fur Grafik und Buchkunst (Academy for Visual Arts) in Leipzig.
Dmitry Gelfand (RU) together with Evelina Domnitch (BY) creates sensory immersion environments that merge physics, chemistry and computer science with uncanny philosophical practices.

The ORIGIN Symposium will be shown live at DORF TV and streamed live on our website.
