PhDO #5 To sustain or not to sustain
The first PhDO of 2012 will have presentations of three women in
transdisciplinary research practice all related to notions of
sustainability. Not only will they present their distinct approaches
of research also the necessity thereof will be addressed.
Špela Petrič (SLO) holds a PhD in Biomedicine (Biochemistry and
Molecular Biology), is researcher at the Institute of Biochemistry and
teaching assistant at the faculty of Medicine at the University of
Ljubljana. She has collaborated with a substantial number of art
projects since 2000, among which those of the international Hacteria
Group. As an artist she focuses on the cross-section of biological
sciences, performance and art and collaborates with the Kapelica
Gallery in Ljubljana. Her recent work includes CTCAG - recognition
(lecture-performance, 2011), Cladocera (installation, 2010),
Autobiography-Discography (performance, 2008), I am as if I'm not
(theatre performance, 2007), LabSUs (video-essay, 2007). Currently she
is studying at the Transmedia at Sint Lukas School of Art and Design
Clare Brass (GB) For many years Clare Brass was a prominent product
designer, who, early in her career, began to explore ways of using
design to help people adopt a more pro-environmental behaviour. Leader
of Sustainability at the Design Council until 2007, she is recognised
as an outspoken champion of design and sustainability and is currently
exploring new ways for designers to use their professional abilities
while addressing social and environmental challenges. She took up a
part-time role at Design London to bring social enterprise and
sustainability thinking to business, design and engineering students
of IDE at the RCA and Imperial College.
Piem Wirtz (NL) is hands-on project manager in art, design and
technology. She holds a Msc in Industrial Design Engineering and is
participating as a dancer in the contemporary dance group Dattah. At
V2_lab, Piem is supervising interdisciplinary teams of artists and
engineers, often becoming a personal coach for the artist. Besides
managing the creative process from concept to working prototype, Piem
assists hands-on in the production of artworks and organizes
workshops, exhibitions and public events to present the resulting
works. In 2011, she was project manager of Protei - an oil spill
cleaning sailing drone.
All three, Petric, Brass and Wirtz will present their work in the
light of the question whether there is a need for the diversification
of knowledge production next to that of science. In other words what
meaning and value are represented by creative and artistic research
practices for a more sustainable society and changing ecology?
The first two creative researchers that send an e-mail to
phdo at waag.org will be granted a three minute timeslot at the end of
PhDO #5 to present their proposed research.
PhDO is an initiative of Waag Society and Arne Hendriks. Founding
partners are NWO and IIP Create.
I hope to see you Friday.
