:: new dimensions in collaboration

How are artists and scientists exploring Einstein's legacy, not as individuals, but through art-sci collaborative projects? In 1998, Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI), took a leap of faith that artists and scientists were ready to come together in a public symposium to present their projects, share their thoughts on collaboration and dispel misconceptions about the 'two cultures' of C.P. Snow. By ArtSci2001, new collaborative models had evolved and we found scientists presenting alongside their artist partners. This emergent cultural paradigm that is developing around the world, has raised new questions on issues surrounding artscience practice.

In this 4th international art-sci symposium, organized by ASCI, we continue to build a visible context for the nascent field of artscience practice by publicly sharing and documenting exemplary models of art-sci collaborations while providing a valuable information hub, collaborative tools, and an open forum for dialogue about current artscience practice and interdisciplinary collaboration in general.

This year, nine prominent collaborating institutions working in the field of artscience practice have helped produce the event as a future model for self-sustainability:
*Arts Council of England [Collaborative Arts Unit]*
*Arts Department, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY*
*Australian Network for Art & Technology [ANAT]*
*Banff New Media Institute (BNMI), Banff Centre, Alberta, Canada*
*Design | Media Arts at UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture*
*Leonardo/ISAST (International Society for Art, Science, & Technology)*
*Radical Project/The SMARTlab Centre, The London Institute*
*School of Art & Design, University of Michigan*
*Science and the Arts Program, CUNY Graduate Center*
>from *ArtSci2002 site*, december 6, 2002.
