Episode 023: LASER Talks, Curiosity and Highjacking Technology, with Piero Scaruffi was released on the Back to the Drawing Board podcast on Monday, September 17, 2018.
What if we tried to learn about things outside of our chosen discipline?
I sat down with Piero Scaruffi, the founder of the Leonardo Art Science Evenings (LASERs), to chat about curiosity, highjacking technology, art and science, and learning things outside of your discipline. The LASER Talks occur internationally and are a way to bring artists and scientists together for informal presentations and conversations.
For those curious in art and science, the intersection or combination of the two, or for those looking for examples of science and art collaborations, you're sure to find lots of gems here. Questions that are answered include: "Why is art important in science," "How is science related to art," and "In what way does science affect culture."
