The Ionian University is now presenting the second of three calls for TTTfellows: Art and Science Residency taking place on 1-15 March 2024 (online) and 18-29 March 2024 (on ground) on the islands of Othoni and Corfu, Greece. TTTfellows, inspired by the thematics of the conference Taboo - Transgression - Transcendence in Art & Science, has opened a call for one scientist and one artist to collaborate in developing an Art & Science workshop / lecture performance and draft of a speculative piece proposal for publication / exhibit related to informal art & biology training for artists, philosophers and social theorists on the topics of Fertilization: Artificial Insemination, In Vitro Fertilization, Germline Gene Editing and Zombie Studies. The fellowship’s art and science research thematics include: embryonic development, preimplantation genetic diagnosis, undead morphogenetic programing and speculative forms of embryo grading. The subtextual narrative mixes developmental biology with teratology through the zombie studies and interpretive dance practices of slow undead shambling.
TTTfellows is integrated in the project Rewilding Cultures by the Feral Labs Network, co-funded by the European Union, aiming to bring together one artist and one scientist for one month of interdisciplinary friction and Ionian environmental immersion. Participants should be willing to contribute to the development of a local Feral Labs DIY Bio Hub i.e. presentation for graduate students; and drafting a speculative piece proposal for publication / exhibit to be included in the archive of the Ionian University.
The organization offers accommodation in Othoni and Corfu and a fee of approx. 1400 euros to cover expenses related with traveling, food and research.
Results for the second call for TTTfellows: Art and Science Residency on the theme of Fertilization have been announced. Selected participants for this edition are Clarissa Ribeiro and Robert Lisek.
