Aoife van Linden Tol, the recipient of the first art&science@ESA residency, organised by Ars Electronica in partnership with ESA, is back at ESA’s European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, The Netherlands, for another three-week research period.
In the spirit of a two-way exchange during the residency, the artist is not only discussing and brainstorming with space scientists, but will also offer ESTEC employees a peek into her creative practice with a workshop aimed at scientists on 12 May, a live-art event on 16 May, and an exhibition of the collaborative artwork on 18 and 19 May.
During her residency, Aoife is researching for Star Storm, a spectacular performance inspired by the physical processes that characterise the life of stars, which will premiere in September during the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria.
