Ex-Texan arch-collaborator Andrea Grover formed a “hive mind” with writers Claire Evans, Régine Debatty, and Pablo Garcia, and designers Luke Bulman and Jessica Young of Thumb Projects earlier this year to write “New Art/Science Affinities” in a seven-day charette. The book is now out, and is available for purchase ($45.75) through print-on-demand service Lulu, or for free download.
The book focuses on artists working at the intersection of art, science and technology, and includes meditations, interviews, diagrams, letters and manifestos on maker culture, hacking, artist research, distributed creativity, and technological and speculative design.
Sixty international artists and art collaboratives are featured, including Agnes Meyer-Brandis, Atelier Van Lieshout, Brandon Ballengée, Free Art and Technology (F.A.T.), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, The Institute for Figuring, Aaron Koblin, Machine Project, Openframeworks, C.E.B. Reas, Philip Ross, Tomás Saraceno, SymbioticA, Jer Thorp, and Marius Watz.
