Estudio Nuboso’s LAB de Arte y Ciencia is a format for knowledge exchange that promotes collaboration between scientists and artists to produce a positive impact on society and the environment. Based in Panama, the project has been run twice – in 2015 and 2017 – with a residency period, followed by exhibitions, public programs and publications.
Estudio Nuboso is an art and ecology organization founded in Panama, a country of great interest for scientific research due to its vast biodiversity. Although much of the research that is made in this country influences the fields of health, environment and technology, there is a delay in knowledge transfer to the people who inhabit this living laboratory. The Art and Science LAB project emerges as a space to awaken curiosity and reflect on how we relate with our surroundings through the interaction between these two disciplines. An integral understanding of the surroundings is a key to empower people and rewrite the narratives of what the world is and can become. And art is a powerful vehicle to share and connect with ideas that benefit humanity.
