Lay Summary (French)

Lead
Autant les scientifiques que les artistes sont souvent vus par le grand public comme appliquant des concepts incompréhensibles. Que ce soit pour les œuvres d’art ou pour les recherches de pointe, il faut souvent plusieurs années avant que le grand public accepte un concept. Il y a aussi peu d’échanges entre les communautés scientifiques et artistiques. En se rappelant la révolution architecturale qui a été amenée par le mouvement « Bauhaus », nous sommes convaincus que l’Art peut-être une source d’inspiration pour les scientifiques et que les nouvelles découvertes peuvent aussi créer de nouvelles voies d’exploration pour les artistes, et les Arts et les Sciences peuvent travailler ensemble pour mieux faire passer leurs concepts au grand public.
Lay summary

Le SICHH (Swiss Integrative Center for Human Health) implémente une plateforme de communication entre l’art et la technologie nommée « experience Art & Science » (EAS). En date du 5 octobre 2019, cette plate-forme sera inaugurée à la Halle bleue de la blueFACTORY à Fribourg avec un évènement grand public.

Lors de cette inauguration, nous allons mélanger l’Art et la Science afin de créer un lien entre ces domaines et communiquer avec le public. Deux Shows seront présentés : Un racontant des essais de soins illustrés par des expériences chimiques et l’autre sera une performance artistique inspiré par la science. « Billy The Artist » et Katharina M. Fromm seront les experts responsables pour ces shows.

En complément, souhaitant améliorer les connaissances du public dans les domaines scientifiques, nous présentons des ateliers pour proposer une immersion dans la Science, la Technologie et l’Art. Ceux-ci permettront de présenter des connaissances pointues via une approche artistique et technologique. Les experts pour ces ateliers sont par exemple Dr. Isabelle Dupanloup Duperret (Santé digitale), Dr Christina Martin Olmos (Microscopie) et des collaborateurs de l’école EIKON (école professionnelle en Arts appliqués).

Le but de cette journée est de réduire le seuil limitant la communication entre la Science, l’Art et le grand public. Idéalement, nous aimerions que le public montre un intérêt plus grand pour la Science suite à l’événement.

Lay Summary (English)

Lead
Artists and scientists may have in common that their art or science is obscure to the large public. Surprisingly few interactions exist between scientists and artists. We are convinced that both, Art and Science can improve creativity in all domains by bringing new tools and new ideas. This conviction is strengthened with the example of the "Bauhaus" movement that included Arts and revolutionized Architecture and industrial design.
Lay summary

The Swiss Integrative Center for Human Health (SICHH) is building an art & technology communication platform named “Experience Art & Science” (EAS) that will be launched the 5th October 2019 in the Blue Hall, BlueFACTORY, Fribourg.
This launch event is aimed for the large public. To create a link between Art and Science, our approach will be to mix Art and Science to speak to the public. We will present two Shows to the public, one with a story about questing quick regeneration illustrated with chemical experiences and one artistic performance whose inspiration will be rooted in Science. While the Art show will involve Billy The Artist, the Chemistry show will be managed by Katharina M. Fromm. To complement the shows, we will also propose a series of workshops dedicated to the large public offering them a full immersion day in science, technology and art. Theses interactive workshops are centered on the visualization of science through art and involve experts in science with expertise in public outreach such as Dr. Isabelle Dupanloup Duperret (expert in Digital Health), Dr Christina Martin Olmos (expert in microscopy) and experts in art like EIKON (professional school of applied arts in Fribourg). Our aim is to lower the threshold of communication between Science, Art and the large public. Ideally, we would also like the public to acquire a positive interest in Science and technology.
