In October 2018, SFB42 visited the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, the largest set of underground laboratories dedicated to the study of fundamental components of matter. Based on jointly gathered experiences and materials, the group developed an artistic-scientific experimental system which uses the iterative process of "transobjects".
An artist and scientist duo collaborated on an ‘object’ for a week and pass it through to the next duo for a unique process of transdiciplinary “exquisite corpse” which results in the exposed and performed research at the Reaktorhalle.
Our first project #eco_techno_cosmo_logic was developed in collaboration with artist Jol Thoms and was presented in cooperation with SFB1258 Neutrinos and Dark Matter in Astroparticle Physics on February 9th 2019, from 20h to 22h in Reaktorhalle.
An introductory conversation on investigating art as an experimental system was be held by Dr. Susanne Witzgall and Jol Thomson gave a brief screen-based performance linking his experimental pedagogical practice with the themes and histories of #eco_techno_cosmo_logic field trip through his relationship with the Physics department of the TUM.
