Join Dr Svenja Kratz for a discussion on interdisciplinarity, the intersections or art and science and the possibilities of creative practice thinking.
What are the intersections and possibilities of working in inter-disciplinary environments? What does it mean to intersect 'disciplines' in a single practice? How might we collaborate equally but still maintain our own identity?
Dr Svenja Kratz is an award winning artist, researcher and educator who is interested in trans-disciplinary creative practice, particularly the intersections between science and art. Her work questions our human-ness and our concepts of disciplinary boundaries and she is currently working as a Senior Lecturer in interdisciplinary creative practice at UTAS.
Her work encompasses both solo and collaborative projects. She has worked with researchers and practitioners across music, design, architecture, electrical engineering, molecular biology and biomanufacturing and produced a range of works that explore the complexity of living systems and highlight the philosophical and ethical implications of emerging technologies and engineered life.
Svenja will give us an overview of her art, her practice and how this affects her approaches to teaching and learning.
Come and join us for a journey into the realms of the speculative and experimental.
Date & time: Thursday 15th June, 2:30pm - 4:00pm
Location: RMIT Design Hub Level 3 Lecture Theatre, Building 100 Corner of Victoria and Swanston Streets Melbourne, VIC 3000
