On how interdisciplinary research changes directions

For two years we programmed three residency periods of twelve weeks each, in which we curated teams of artists, designers and scientists.

Therefore, we combined scientific framing with artistic research, forming a process in which concrete issues commissioned by clients were questioned and researched from an interdisciplinary artistic-scientific perspective.

Our newest project: Scientific Imagination

A project on the the extraordinary nature of the ordinary things around us.

Future Based Scientific Imagination is a new project of the Future Based platform, hosted and curated by Sabine Winters. The philosophical quest of this project is based on the wish to understand more about the role of imagination in our understanding of the world. Furthermore, the different perspectives on the function of imagination, represents a wider perspective on questions on human knowledge: how we obtain knowledge and which beliefs we hold about the methodologies in acquiring knowledge. Special contributors are among other professor Vincent Icke, Astropreneur Nancy Vermeulen and Cybrog anthropologist Marques D Anderson. https://scientificimagination.org

EVENTS:

A message from the Future Based team:

Exactly one year ago we were forced to make a shift from offline to online events. And wow, we’ve organized over 15 events and welcomed over 270 participants from all over the world. Now that Spring is slowly creeping up on us, we feel that it is time to take a breather. So, starting from March till May we are going to re-think the structure of our platform, while you enjoy your offline life. We will be back with new gatherings on location, combined with a wonderful online programme in which we aim to merge the offline with the online.

Do you have thoughts on a new programme for the Future Based platform?  Please reach out to us at goodnews@futurebased.org.
