This issue of Art & Research represents a ‘gathering’ of issues and experiences in artistic research as manifest in papers and artworks presented on the ‘occasion’ of significant international conferences and symposia dedicated to artistic research held between May and December 2008:
Talking about as well as investigating networks has become the determining morphology of our society in recent years. Web 2.0 holds the promise of an essential change, in which the collective intelligence of the users becomes the central resource of individual and community life. Today the question seems to be whether the industrial society is in the middle of a transformation to something entirely new, which by theory is only indicated with the prefix "post". Thus, scientific research has trouble keeping pace with the rapid development of a nascent mode of life and production.
Knowledge Transfer Scotland: Policy and Practice 2008 aims to address research-KT
questions by bringing together early stage researchers, academic staff,
university managers, research and enterprise experts, outreach
specialists, funding bodies and policy makers for a unique, one-day
conference at the University of St Andrews on Friday 4th April 2008.
