art-sci-tech member organization

I am just beginning to explore (read: I am neither endorsing or denouncing) the Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. website. ASCI is a membership organization for artists and scientists interested in working on multidisciplinary projects, namely those involving art, technology, and science.

Despite sounding a bit proud of themselves – “ASCI was instrumental in reinvigorating the art-sci-tech movement in the United States during the mid-1990’s and helped coalesce the art-science movement [1998-2002]” – they offer some good resources, and although they’re specficially geared towards artists, the artists’ work is strongly based in technology and the sciences. They are also based in New York, so a lot of their “free tickets” and on-site help are presumably only available to New Yorkers or area locals.



Beth Kelley is an applied & digital anthropologist with an overall interest in how people engage with and are impacted by their environments and vice versa. This has manifested itself in many ways, by looking at creativity, playful spaces, built environments, and environmental enrichment, sustainability, design research, and integrative and collaborative models of learning such as through play and hands-on learning.
