What is SOFAlab?

We believe that a new dual intellectual culture – as well as new research and academic structures to support it – is needed that can cultivate and sustain an increasingly indispensible blending of artistic, scientific, and technological sensibilities and skills. SOFAlab is an experimental framework in which participants from both art and science can be supported to explore the mechanism of the transformative power inherent in the interchange between science and art and its potential power to heal both on a personal and societal level. Literally, artists will be invited to observe and participate in laboratory sessions and scientists will be invited into artist’s studios for collaborative projects.
