Media Art Research Interdisciplinary Group
M.A.R.I.N. is a networked residency and research initiative, integrating artistic and scientific research on ecology of the marine and cultural ecosystems.
For the first three years M.A.R.I.N.’s operational focus is a mobile residency program set on a catamaran sail boat, redesigned and equipped to be a sustainable environment for transdisciplinary research in arts, sciences and technology. Emerging from long experience of collaboration within media art, M.A.R.I.N. develops a new, integrative arts/science/technology practice model.
Areas of research :
MARINE ECOLOGY (cyanobacteria, alien species)
LITTORAL NARRATIVES AND MAPPING
OPEN TECHNOLOGY SYSTEMS
MARINE ECOLOGY 2 (spillage, overnutrition, heavy metals)
WEARABLE COMPUTING AND ECOLOGICAL SENSING FOR THE SEAS
