[Nettime-nl] July 19: Masterclass "Creative Research"

  *Masterclass “Creative Research” *

Maarten Lamers & Bas Haring
July 19, 14:00 - 17:00
voormalig Fotomuseum, Witte de Withstraat 63, Rotterdam*

    “To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems
    from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real
    advances in science.” — Albert Einstein

There must be more room for creativity and unconventional ideas in
scientific research. Only through dealing creatively with research
itself can we achieve results that could otherwise not be envisioned,
and can science remain groundbreaking. Just as in the Dutch concept of
autonomous artists, there should be free-thinking and creative
scientists - autonomous scientists.

This idea is central in the Media Technology MSc programme of Leiden
University. In the masterclass this creative research concept is
presented - with many examples - and is much room for discussion. Some
examples and results of unconventional scientific research are presented
as installations in the exhibition.
