Fusion AIR is a residency program designed to create a meeting place between artists and scientists. It aims to provide a functional collaborative infrastructure that facilitates artists’ participation in scientific research, ultimately brining technical concepts closer to a broader audience.
We seek artists interested in scientific methods and research tools. Also, we aim to establish systematic interactions with representatives from various scientific research institutes, in order to promote transdisciplinary practices, using shared data and technical facilities.
Aside from the main residency frame, Fusion AIR includes specific events that outreach and disseminate the art & science approach: exhibitions, artist talks, conferences, workshops.
Current scientific partnerships include the National Institute for Material Physics, the National Institute for Space Sciences, the National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics and the National Institute for Research and National Research & Development Institute for Textiles and Leather. We are constantly working on expanding this list, within Romania as well as world-wide.
