We are developing collaborations on campus in a series of nine studios over the next five years. Collaborative discovery is in our shared future.

Together, we will answer three primary questions about climate change. We will work
in the lab, in the studio, in the field. ‘What is the response of marine life to climate change? How will climate change alter the structure and function of coastal marine food webs? Will increased ocean temperatures result in greater rates of infection and disease among host populations?

Scientists, artists, and designers gathered in April 2010 at the second Making Science Visible symposium to continue the conversation about collaboration begun in the fall.

‘Collaboration’ is a word that has become freighted with any number of cultural aspirations well beyond its rather humble meaning as ‘the condition or state of working together’ (co-laboring).
and the space (the stairwell) framed by the task-at-hand (moving the couch through the stairwell) provide a field of play for the exercise of the shared expertise of the movers. Their expertise is, in turn, available as a set of specific, coordinated activities: the stepping-up and balancing of the object, the contours of speech, and the moment-to-moment reorientation of one’s own actions to the actions of the other. It is in this sense that moving furniture — when you get it right — represents a rather deep form of collaboration.

intriguing because we began the collaboration at an early stage in the process of idea creation and planning. The Making Science Visible events held this last year were captivating. They created space. My hope for us this next year is that we explore the space and take hold, assemble, learn unfamiliar processes, and try them on.

WHAT IS EMBODIED COGNITION? The human body has nothing more than its various surfaces and other sensibilities, more or less well understood, with which to comprehend, to act, to relate to and to project, to imagine and live within this environment. Embodied Mind theory holds that even our most abstract or grand concepts are in some ways founded upon the biological and electromagnetic phenomena underpinning the sensory procedures upon which we so completely depend. The roots of our expressions of experience and â€˜knowledgeâ€™ have certain common ground in this embodiment of process, however different their ultimate expression may become within differing types of work. This concept can be useful in exploring endeavours that are effectively interdisciplinary.
D AV I D G E R S T E N
‘Each discipline affords us distinct modes of thinking and acting, they provide structures of: perception, representation, comprehension and engagement. The mental and physical instruments of each discipline situate us within a spectrum of embodied experiences, from a violin, to a table saw, a canvas, a foundry, a camera, each situation creates unique experiences and modes of developing embodied knowledge.

‘Science stories are often constructed so that the narrative serves as a vehicle for a particular series of facts. Putting the story first better reflects the process and goals of science, and is more compelling to a broader audience.
Art can help science by simplifying and clarifying these narratives, and science can serve art by developing new narratives that are beyond the range of human experience. Casey Dunn's laboratory shares its findings with the public through its Creature Cast series, which includes animation and videos to visualize the science at work. ANIMATION | SOPHIA TINTORI
‘Artists and designers, while not purely makers in the sense of those in manufacturing or the trades, spend a lot of time making meaning with their hands. At the same time, their process, while not purely intellectual like scientists and other knowledge workers, is often rigorously engaged with the life of the mind, and also allows them — or can require them —
to develop agility in comprehending and relating complex ideas to a range of audiences.
K N OW I N G A N D T R A N S L AT I N G BETWEEN
CONSTITUENCIES It’s quickly become a cliche to claim an exceptional role for artists and designers in the new economy. Perhaps because we sense something unusual in the way that creative minds navigate the world; perhaps, even more, from what we can understand observing creative practitioners at work, they seem to embody ways of being that we intuit as potentially vital to the world we sense is ahead, but cannot yet bring into focus.
The It's in the Bag project transformed plastic shopping bags into new material and new products.
Artists and designers, while not purely makers in the sense of those in manufacturing or the trades, spend a lot of time making meaning with their hands. At the same time, their process, while not purely intellectual like scientists and other knowledge workers, is often rigorously engaged with the life of the mind. This dual nature allows artists and designers to navigate an unusual array of terrains and also allows them — or can require them — to develop agility in comprehending and relating complex ideas to a range of audiences. It’s this ability to translate ideas — among and between constituencies, as well as ways of knowing — that make risd’s participation in Rhode Island’s nsf epscor project such an intriguing opportunity for Rhode Island. As our gatherings this year have shown, this promises a renewed opportunity for enlivening research and translating research outcomes into new economic and educational opportunities.
The speed with which knowledge is being produced and new research enables us to consider new paths confounds the precepts of and exposes the limitations of our current educational systems. ri nsf epscor provides an opportunity to connect the current research — and research that has gravitas because it’s grounded in place — with the worldview of a range of Rhode Islanders. Through the development of exhibitions, interactive public encounters, information visualization, publications, and symposia — all collaboratively developed with researchers — risd’s role in this project enables a new kind of public engagement with current science. Whether aimed toward young learners who are just beginning to develop a sense of their vocational identity, leaders in commerce, or Rhode Islanders considering public policy directions in their neighborhoods and communities, engagement with the process and outcomes of ri nsf epscor research holds the promise of sparking a new kind of public classroom — on the street, in schools, and through a variety of existing (and yet to be fully known) media. Peter Hocking is Interim Director of risd’s Office of Public Engagement where he works to develop innovative university-community partnerships. He is leading risd’s ri nsf epscor’s public engagement initiatives.

MAKING SCIENCE VISIBLE OF
During the preparation work carried out prior to devising the Making Science Visible program, I spoke individually with many potential participants… about what exactly? Everyone wanted to know.
What emerged from the conversations influenced our thinking about how to run a preparatory event that would assist the bigger picture of cross-disciplinary potentials in research in Rhode Island in the epscor framework as we move ahead. These are some examples of key challenges, either implied or specific, that appear to be permanent features of rapidly developing research in different specialist fields;

â€˜Like many complex structures such as language or molecular structures,
disciplinesâ€†are polymorphic. Which is to say they can exist in more than one form, they can take on different meanings and organizations depending on their context and environment. Recognizing the links between embodied experience and embodied knowledge as well as the polymorphic characteristics of disciplines helps us understand and navigate the particular disciplinary geography of a given time and place. This navigation is essential to creating coherence between our lives and the broader geographies of our given epoch.
