Convergences of Art, Science and Technology (C.A.S.T)

Singapore Art Museum
9 September 2003 - September 2004

Art becomes the medium through which one can contemplate practices and discourse of science and technology, as well as consider its impact on society. Playful and creative expectations of the future invite your response, while hands-on stations provide interaction for technological interface with science and creativity, including student activities held in conjunction with the exhibition at the Art Lab. The opening installation of the exhibition will feature work by artists, in collaboration with scientists, computer engineers and medical professionals. Their combined wide ranging fields of expertise are a social proposition of a converging future of art, science and technology. A selection of electro-microscopic scientific images captured by researchers of the National Institute of Medical Research (Inserm), France, will be included in this opening installation. These images provide a view of science mimicking art, where images of cells, DNA, neurotransmitters and the brain, appear in unexpected and visually engaging permutations. Among the Singaporean artists featured are
Chng Nai Wee and Shirley Soh. This show was curated by Jean Wee.
