We are a member of Leonardo/ISAST

We would like to share with you great news: HAT Research Center has become a Leonardo Affiliate Member.

Leonardo/The International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology (Leonardo/ISAST) is a nonprofit organization that serves the global network of distinguished scholars, artists, scientists, researchers and thinkers through our programs, which focus on interdisciplinary work, creative output and innovation. From its beginnings, Leonardo has served as THE virtual community for networking, resource-sharing, disseminating best practices, supporting research and offering events in art/science/technology.

Leonardo serves as a critical content provider through our publications, which include scholarly journals and books published by The MIT Press (Leonardo, Leonardo Music Journal, Leonardo Electronic Almanac and the Leonardo Book Series), as well as ARTECA, our latest joint digital publishing project with The MIT Press.

The journal Leonardo was founded in 1968 in Paris by kinetic artist and astronautical pioneer Frank Malina. Malina saw the need for a journal that would serve as an international channel of communication among artists, with emphasis on the writings of artists who use science and developing technologies in their work. After the death of Frank Malina in 1981 and under the leadership of his son, Roger F. Malina, Leonardo moved to San Francisco, California, as the flagship journal of the newly founded nonprofit organization Leonardo/The International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology (Leonardo/ISAST). Leonardo/ISAST has grown along with its community and today is the leading organization for artists, scientists and others interested in the application of contemporary science and technology to the arts and music. (from Leonardo website)

Gold Medal PQ2015 for Post-Apocalypsis

gold medal / PQ2015 / sound design

The Polish national exhibition Post-Apocalypsis curated by Agnieszka Jelewska has been awarded the Gold Medal of the 13th Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space festival.

The Gold Medal PQ 2015 for Sound Design went to the Polish team for its project Post-Apocalypsis, which the jury appreciated for its clever use of sound – the sensitive and interactive sound design reflects contemporary ideas relating to the relationship between man, nature and technology as part of a hybrid communications system.

postapocalypsis gold medal

Before Post-Apocalypsis’ success, works by Polish artists had been awarded gold at the Prague Quadrennial only three times. In 1967, the award was given to Andrzej Kreutz Majewski, 4 years later Jerzy Gurawski, Józef Szajna, Leokadia Serafinowicz and Zofia Wierchowicz. The last Polish representatives to be presented with the Gold Medal were Jan Berdyszak, Adam Kilian, Kazimierz Mikulski, Zofia Pietrusińska, Leokadia Serafinowicz, Zygmunt Smandzik, Zofia Stanisławska-Howrukowa and Jerzy Zitzman in 1979.
