Connections between science and the arts.

MIT Press Podcast Series Episode #18 features Michael Punt, Sundar Sarukkai, Martyn Woodward and Roger Malina discussing the connections between science and the arts, especially where the sublime—the unknowable, the incomprehensible—fits within these fields. This conversation was inspired by Leonardo Reviews Quarterly 2.01 (which is now available as an e-book from Amazon)


SEAD Working Group on White Papers
The SEAD Working Group on White Papers is assembled in response to the following two objectives from US NSF NEA workshops: a) The NSF NSEAD workshop at MICA suggested the development of White Papers for research and advocacy leading to a common platform (Beyond Productivity 2 report as a follow on to Beyond Productivity, the report issued by the US National Research Council and directed by William Mitchell); present at conferences 2012-13.
The purpose of the working group is to develop a report with proposed actions to address new opportunities or roadblocks to improve collaboration between science and engineering and arts and design. The report will also analyze existing reports issued internationally over the last ten years and develop a meta-analysis of these previous reports.
An Open call to the International Community has been issued to invite submission of White Papers.
