Abstract:

  • Since 2010, NANO Nucleus of Art and New Organisms, a research lab facility at the School of Fine Arts from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, has been developing a consistent body of works, theoretical and practical, on the intersection of art, science, technology and nature. These works, which encompass a twilight zone in-between organic and artificial life, including plants, bees, bacteria and robots, are inspired by nature and models of thought drawn from scientific to ancient knowledge, such as indigenous Amerindian traditions and eastern cultures. This paper aims to present NANO’s creative production and methods, focusing on aspects of art education, transculturalism, sustainability, based on the experience of the project “Land as an Educational Principle”.
