Students Signe Thyrri Häggqvist, Imre Mark Petkov and post.doc. Line Marie Bruun Jespersen from ArT participated at the conference: Digital Resarch in Humanities and Arts 2016, which was held at Brighton University from the 4th to the 7th of September.
The conference theme was: Place, Ecology and the Digital, and the title of the presentation was: Art and Technology Students work on Placemaking. The case of Syrens Have. –an artwork created in an interdisciplinary, problem-based group project
The presentation had a student project from Art and Technology at Aalborg University, as the central case. The case was included in order to
illustrate how the interdisciplinary nature of much contemporary art in public space, can be included in a learning situation (pedagogical strategy) and to give an example of some of the positive learning outcomes of this strategy, in in terms of knowledge production (content, innovation).
Syrens Have, is a 4th semester project from Spring 2016 created by Signe Thyrri Häggqvist, Imre Mark Petkov, Mads Dejbjerg Lind and Suvi Kristina Pölönen. Mads and Suvi were unfortunately unable to participate in the conference. The Obel Foundation, the ArT Study Board and the CAT School, AAU, funded the student´s participation in the conference.
