Space for Art and Science.

In an effort to facilitate synergy between science and art, we need to create space that supports the mutual exchange of ideas and creative experimentation. We aim to create these points of contact by supporting, creating, and expanding on different projects and ideas together with representatives from the scientific and artistic communities.
