CURRENTS and PAST COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS

 

March 2021 to present: I am part of the Space and Society Virtual Working Group, initiated by space philosopher James Schwartz. The group fosters interdisciplinary and critical discourse around the topic of space exploration and settlement.

 February 2020 to present: I am part f the advisory board for Polar Star, a global educational project focusing on innovative forms of knowledge building in the classroom through astronomy and arctic science. The project is in collaboration with international universities and research centres. 

February 2020 to present: I am part of the trans-disciplinary and international round table for the Human Space Program, initiated by space philosopher Frank White, author of ”The Overview Effect: Space Exploration and Human Evolution”. The weekly online discussions gather thinkers from the scientific and cultural fields to build a wider discourse around the Overview Effect.

January 2015 to present: I am a regular contributor for the Wow! Signal Podcast, a series of conversations on speculative science and culture, initiated by NASA engineer Paul Carr in 2012. I record podcasts about Art, Science, SETI and Society (http://www.wowsignalpodcast.com/). 

February 2014 to December 2014 BIO 50, OBSERVING SPACE: an international collaborative project for the 50th Slovenia Biennale of Design. The collaboration culminated in the production of a project informed by space research for a touring exhibition, departing from the Museum of Architecture and Design in Ljubljana.

http://bio.si/en/

 July 2013 to 2017 advisor for the New Horizons Message: the Initiative attempted to persuade NASA to upload a crowd-sourced message to the spacecraft’s memory, following its Pluto encounter. The project has been coordinated by American artist Jon Lomberg, in collaboration with an international team of artists and scientists. 

May 2013 – 2014 Cabine Voltaire: founder and director. Inspired by the versatile atmosphere of the Dwingeloo radio telescope, Cabine Voltaire was an online channel for live panels at the crossroad of art, science and philosophy (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwbetCH69CSYJveB9LNEHsQ). The program was in collaboration with 1st Mile Institute, Santa Fe (http://www.1st-mile.com/).

 January 2012 – 2018 In 2012 I initiated ASTROARTS, the first international, online cultural platform of Astronomers Without Borders. For almost ten years, AstroArts featured creative works inspired by astronomy. AstroArts was an international initiative – lead by professionals working in the arts and science fields.

2007 – 2014: I realized the video installations for ‘STILL’, ‘FACE ON’ and ‘NO END’, a series of works by British choreographer Anna Krzystek, informed by the poetical resonance of WAITING (http://www.annakrzystek.com/).

 2009 – ongoing Artisti Innocenti: Italian performance group, based in Rome and working in public spaces.
