Hacking Science, Art and Technology

What is the SciArt Lab?

We are a Research and Development Lab for the open exploration of Science, Art and Technology. We explore new ways to visualize and analyze information. We consider that a multidisciplinary approach is crucial to hack seemingly unrelated topics such as photography, artificial intelligence, ethnography, biology, chemistry or digital art.
Complex Systems and Computation

Studying the emergence of complex behavior in self-organizing systems, such as artificial life simulations or biochemical experiments.

Scientific Outreach and Education

Helping future hackers to understand science with DIY experiments. Promoting Science, Art and Technology as emancipatory tools.

Synthetic and Emergent Languages

Developing Artificial Intelligence models and visual experiments to explore the potential of artificial languages and constructed scripts.

Digital Photography and Generative Art

Exploring new ways of expression and photographic representation through the use of physical methods, lighting and digital processing.

More than research

Enabling unconventional research and creative explorations in innovative and unusual ways
From Biochemical Systems to Digital Photography

We combine artistic explorations with unconventional research, hacking traditional ontological and epistemological constraints, building bridges beyond the limits imposed by a specific academic field. Discovering new methods to teach science, understanding the inner nature of social agents, playing with artificial intelligence models, simulating complex adaptive systems, exploring cognitive science with artistic representations or experimenting with new techniques for visual expression through digital photography.

"Although I had a great time observing the evolution of different social dynamics with a computationally-based approach, I realized that I wanted to know more about the human being as a social construct. And I wanted to know it from my own subjective point of view, the point of view of another social construct..." - Rhizome Ethnographies
