The Vibrancy Effect - Expert Meeting
Several times a year, V2_ holds an expert meeting in one of its research areas, at which leading researchers, writers and artists spend a few days together. Though the meetings are not open to the public, we aim to make the results available in online publications, interviews and videos.
On April 9 and 10, V2_ will hold the expert meeting The Vibrancy Effect, curated by Chris Salter, on the fundamental theoretical division between "living" and "non-living." What is the difference in behavior between the living and the non-living at various levels? For instance, why is a rock clearly part of the non-living category in spite of the fact that at the atomic level it is anything but static? Would we be more careful with the earth if we believed everything was alive to some degree? Interestingly, in investigating these questions, artists in particular regularly come up with surprising insights by focusing on finding out what matter can do, while scientists limit themselves to determining what it is. Guest curator Chris Salter assembled a group of scientists, theorists and artists to examine the division between "living" and "non-living" by searching for "the vibrancy effect." An e-book on the Vibrancy Effect is forthcoming.
