This residency consisting of an exhibition and symposium is an investigation into the changing patterns of contemporary ecologies, art and science.
The exhibition – Transformative Ecologies features innovative artworks and opening performances by Latvian and Belgian artists. It is complemented by 3D BioLab symposium with art science workshops, artist presentations, public lectures and participatory discussions.
Also, guided tours through the exhibition are offered, as well as a possibility to take a part in Do-It-Yourself art science workshops, experimenting with 3D scanning, printing and generating objects from sound, movement, and environmental data.
