New Art/Science Affinities
Contributors: Andrea Grover, Régine Debatty, Claire Evans, Pablo Garcia, Thumb
Publishers: Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University + STUDIO for Creative Inquiry
October 2011

We are thrilled to announce the release of our new publication, New Art/Science Affinities, a 190-page book on contemporary artists working at the intersection of art, science, and technology.

The book includes meditations, interviews, diagrams, letters and manifestos on maker culture, hacking, artist research, distributed creativity, technological and speculative design. Sixty international artists and art collaboratives are featured, including Agnes Meyer-Brandis, Atelier Van Lieshout, Brandon Ballengée, Free Art and Technology (F.A.T.), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, The Institute for Figuring, Aaron Koblin, Machine Project, Openframeworks, C.E.B. Reas, Philip Ross, Tomás Saraceno, SymbioticA, Jer Thorp, The Graffiti Research Lab, and Marius Watz.

NA/SA was written and designed in one week by six authors and designers, using a collaborative authoring process known as a "book sprint." This method was adopted "in order to understand this very moment in art, science and technology hybrid practices, and to mirror the ways Internet culture and networked communication have accelerated creative collaborations, expanded methodologies, and given artists greater agency to work fluidly across disciplines," says lead author Andrea Grover.

New Art/Science Affinities is part of Grover's Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Curatorial Research Fellowship at the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry + Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon. An exhibition that will be the product of Grover's research will take place in early 2012 at the Miller Gallery.
