Roundtable and presentation of projects by Artists-in-Residence 2023: Enter the Hyper-Scientific

The roundtable will present the ongoing projects of the artist-in-residence program Enter the Hyper-Scientific 2023 with resident artists Rosa Menkman, Sarah Oppenheimer, and Gary Zhexi Zhang.
The panel will explore the themes of the projects developed with the EPFL scientific community, spanning from colors that exist beyond the visible frequencies that the human eye can see, to kinesthetic and visual relays between body and environment, to experiences and representations of non-linear time.

Rosa Menkman
Im/Possible Rainbows and Unnamed colours
Rosa Menkman is a Dutch artist and researcher. Her work focuses on noise artifacts that result from accidents in both analogue and digital media. These artifacts can offer precious insights into the otherwise obscure alchemy of standardization and resolution setting.
Collaborations: EPFL Center for Imaging and the broad EPFL scientific community.

Sarah Oppenheimer
Circulatory Pathways
Sarah Oppenheimer is an architectural manipulator, creating circulatory pathways that establish unexpected kinesthetic and visual relays between bodies and buildings.
Collaborations: Laboratory of Integrated Performance in DesignLaboratory of Intelligent Systems, among others.

Gary Zhexi Zhang
The Inadequacy of Grammar
Gary Zhexi Zhang is an artist and writer. His recent projects explore financial fictions, weird temporalities and catastrophe.
Envisaged collaborations: EPFL Center for ImagingBrain Mind InstituteCrystal Growth FacilityLaboratory of Quantum Physics, Advanced Quantum Architecture Lab, among others.

Moderated by: Giulia Bini, Head of EPFL CDH AiR Program

Roundtable will be broadcast on the College of Humanities YouTube channel
