Art & Science Collaboration, Inc. (ASCI) was founded in 1988 and is an organization whose sole purpose is to raise public awareness about artists and scientists using science and technology to explore new and unique forms of creativity.
With about 400 members from around the globe, ASCI has a large following and brings in members all around the world to bring new perspectives to projects. This “virtual” group was one of the first organizations to combine art, science, and technology and has partnered with many prestigious international organizations such as The Arts Council of England and the Australian Network for Art & Technology.
The members of ASCI demonstrate the intersection of art and science in a variety of forms including video, multimedia, sound, performance, light art, kinetic sculptures and beyond. The members come from a variety of backgrounds including artists, scientists, and other technology-based professions. They all collaborate together on the different projects.
Julie Bintaine, an editor at ASCI, asks Julie Rotblatt Amrany a variety of questions in the interview such as how she began incorporating science into art, challenges in her work, and current goals. Julie Amrany shares her interpretation of the universe and states,
“Whether looking through an electron microscope or the Hubble telescope, we are observing mass, energy, light, and particles, of all sizes, shapes, and behaviors.” She explains her thought process throughout the creation of the installment and gives her unique perspective on how she interprets the universe.
