Materials Science, Slow Textiles, Ecological Futures

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Genuine interdisciplinary collaboration between the arts and sciences can be complex. Andrew Barry, Georgina Born and Gisa Weszkalnys characterize the emergent field of art-science as an intersection where “practice runs ahead of theory”[1]. Harriet Hawkins urges researchers “to build critical reflections across disciplines that not only spark deeper conversation but that also induce a desire for interdisciplinary rigor”[2]. To advance art-science research, it is crucial that artists and scientists critically reflect on their collaborative process.

    This paper contributes to this dialogue by presenting the challenges encountered in the art-science research project Material Science, Slow Textiles & Ecological Futures (MSSTEF).
