Autumn 2019

science_technology_society seeks to support contemporary interdisciplinary approaches that consider, intervene in, and speculate on the world in which we live and its possible futures.

Providing a focused environment, this seasonal programme fosters collaborations between artists and other practitioners, incubating ideas and supporting the development of new projects which aim to make a tangible impact on our lives.

In partnership with Gaia Art Foundation, the first season of science_technology_society took place in autumn 2019 exploring experiments with environmental data; how the lived experience can be digitally captured; and the relationship between technology and social structures.

Serving as a hub for the season’s evolving programme, the project space at Delfina was transformed by PUP Architects to accommodate public and private discussions, presentations, workshops and experimentation around the pressing issues of our times.

This season was in partnership with Gaia Art Foundation.
