Arts and Sciences

Objective: promoting creativity on the Bordeaux site to transform it into a living and open innovation center.

Support is provided to artistic projects jointly undertaken by researchers and artists which promote the development and transfer of knowledge.

Imagination and creation are traits shared by researchers and artists. Their epistemological approaches are thus comparable. Artistic and scientific endeavors require work, rigor, imagination, risk-taking, trial and error, experimentation, etc.While their methods, attitudes and challenges are different, artists and scientists have close similarities when it comes to their questioning of the world.

The goal is therefore to establish a sort of cross-fertilization between the world of art and the world of science, which can be seen and understood.

Calls for projects were issued on the Bordeaux site to stimulate such encounters between research and arts. 3 calls were issued in 2015:

  • a call for expressions of interest aimed at the scientists of the Bordeaux higher education and research site
  • a call for expressions of interest aimed at artists wishing to undertake a research/creation/production project with scientists of the Bordeaux site
  • a call for "Arts and Sciences" projects with a high scientific profile specifically focused on the year of light (International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies – IYL 2015, UNESCO)

During our discussions and exchanges, we explain and compare scientific and artistic concepts or practices. This gives rise to new questions, and asking new questions is at the heart of these two types of activity.

Research Director at Inria Flowers, talking about the project of an artistic/robotic encounter (around body movements)

Encounter between artists and robots around body movementsGrim dance, learning to walk and illusion of effort - Encounter between artists and robots around body movements

Since 2011, a Bordeaux team of artists and scientists have been working on the relationships between movements and emotions, bodies and machines. Their collaboration, seen as a long experimental process, has already resulted in several residences and encounters with the public. Their work started with Acroban, the first humanoid robot developed within the Flowers team at Inria, in collaboration with the Bordeaux Laboratory of IT Research (LaBRI). In 2013, Flowers unveiled Poppy Humanoid, a light, sturdy, open-source robot, easier to reproduce and modify than its predecessor Acroban. Poppy Humanoid was immediately adopted by Amandine Braci and Marie-Aline Villard, in the process of setting up the association Comacina-Capsule Créative. Their project of an artistic/robotic encounter (around body movements) took root. Selected by IdEx...
