• Creative science: A collaborative journey through design and chemistry

Candela, Emily, 2023, Conference or Workshop, Creative science: A collaborative journey through design and chemistry at ‘Molecular Architectures: Towards Cross-Disciplinary Design in Chemistry’, ASCUS Art & Science Laboratory, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK, 03 Aug 2022.

Abstract or Description:

How does creativity connect Design and Science?

What are the similarities between science and design language, methods and processes, and how can these disciplines learn from each other?

How might sharing design approaches across artists, designers and scientists lead to new possibilities for scientific research?

Join Dr Amanda Jarvis from the University of Edinburgh and the ASCUS team for a discussion round that meets with selected art-science duos to dive into cross-disciplinary Design and Chemistry collaborations. We will explore their creative outputs and gain insights on their collaborative journey to guide what has already been achieved and what conversations still need to be had to help us be the best designers we can be in all disciplines.

The panel will be chaired by Emily Candela, a researcher focusing on relationships between design, science, a sound practitioner, curator and senior tutor in Communication Design at the Royal College of Art, UK.

We are excited to have the creative duo John Hardy and Adam Blaney from Lancaster University on board who will share of their collaborative endeavours into the potential of Chemistry in Multidisciplinary, Interdisciplinary, and Transdisciplinary Teaching.

They will be joined by Rasa Weber, PhD candidate and design researcher from Matters of Activity, sharing of her collaboration with UK based Chemist Richard Blackburn and the Leeds spin off Keracol within the design studio Blond and Bieber.
