Les arts et les sciences sont tous deux composés d’observations et d’expérimentations et cherchent à comprendre différents aspects du monde nous entourant.  Malgré ce terrain commun, la vision traditionnelle positionne les arts et les sciences comme des disciplines complètement indépendantes voir opposées l’une à l’autre.  Ceci est malgré le fait que plusieurs des scientifiques pionnier-e-s, tels que Maria Sibylla Merian ou Leonardo da Vinci aient combiné les pratiques artistiques et scientifiques et ce depuis longtemps.  Aujourd’hui, les pratiques transdisciplinaires faisant converger les arts et les sciences gagnent en popularité, comme l’illustre par exemple le mouvement STEAM*.  Le but du panel est d’aborder la question de la place des arts en sciences, des sciences en arts ainsi que de l’importance de cette mixité en science de la biodiversité.  Nous souhaitons débattre de l’idée que cet échange entre les pratiques artistiques et scientifiques ne serait pas seulement favorable pour les activités de sensibilisation que comme moyen d’élargir notre perspective et compréhension des écosystèmes, autant à titre d’artiste qu’à titre de scientifique.

Both art and science uses observation and experimentation, seeking to understand aspects of the complex world around us. Despite this common ground, the disciplines are too often separated by boundaries that are difficult to overcome. Even though pioneer scientists, like Maria Sibylla Merian and Leonardo da Vinci have combined artistic practices since the beginnings of scientific discoveries. Recently, the term STEAM*, describing that art and science benefit from convergence and increased transdisciplinary practices, is becoming increasingly popular. The goal of this panel is to talk about the place of art in science, science in art and the importance of STEAM within biodiversity sciences. We aim to explore the potential of combining scientific and artistic ideas and practises not only for outreach purposes but also as a way to expand our perspectives, both as scientists and artists as well as for a better understanding of our ecosystems.

How microbial volatiles can help plants to withstand droughtClimate change resulting in higher temperatures leads to enormous losses in yields for major crops, including wheat. A promising and sustainable approach to improve wheat yields under suboptimal conditions stems from volatiles... Read More →
