Part of the intention of the project was to "disrupt” or “intervene” with scientific thinking and experimentation by introducing artistic methods generally foreign in scientific settings. The project uses a designed artistic apparatus within which an exquisite corpse project involving the scientific Synthetic Schlieren experiment was carried out, where the participants used found objects from the laboratory and explored image making and storytelling that incorporated the concept of "microclimate of one" and responded to heat in relationship to minimum human impact.
Exquisite corpse is a collective writing or drawing protocol used by the Surrealists to produce fortuitous collisions of meaning. The video documents a game of such a procedure, where eight groups of three students generated experimentation and created narratives by following a set of instructions left from the previous group.
In this project, which took place during the two weeks of the Fluid dynamics for sustainability and environment summer school in Cambridge, UK, art and science implicated each other to prompt a shared inquiry of culture and future.
