DAY 4, The Art of Science – Art and Science. Or Art vs. Science? Out of convenience, stereotypes, and occasional laziness the two cosmic forces of humanity are often put against each other in an artificial rivalry. And while the two creative domains certainly have their differences, their alliance has produced nothing but wonder. Two scientists – and artists – Dr. Garik Israelian and Dr. Aroussiak Gabrielian are living evidence of that awe-inspiring alliance. Beyond his impactful scientific career, the renowned astrophysicist Dr. Israelian joined forces with Dr. Brian May astrophysicist and legendary guitarist of the band Queen to create STARMUS Festival uniting incredible minds over their passion for astronomy, space exploration, sciences, music, and art. An environmental designer and bioartist with training in architecture, Dr. Gabrielian has been reimagining new habitats and ways of being, communicating her fascinating ideas through creative works that bridge art, science, culture, and technology.
As revolutionary and imaginative thinkers, both panelists have mastered their domain, exploring the infinite possibilities of space and biology. Equipped with appreciation of literature, science fiction, and imagination, the two creators have been redefining relationships between arts and sciences. The audience of 2022 Creative Armenia Week has been lucky enough to witness the workings of their minds in action during The Art of Science panel discussion. With the moderation of the Director of Programs of Creative Armenia, Anush Ter-Khachatryan, Dr. Israelian and Dr. Garielian reflected on how fiction has shaped their discoveries, what ideas they have been fascinated by recently, and where Armenia’s artistic and scientific future heads. Be ready to learn, imagine, and get inspired!
