Origami and science – collaboration with Sojo University in Kumamoto
What can be the role of arts and design in this era of big changes in both society and science? How can we use traditional techniques to develop state of the art scientific research and bottom up initiatives?
Senri Nojima, artist and professor at the Sojo University in Kumamoto, invited Hannie van den Bergh from Studio HB to talk about her working method and give the students of the University the opportunity to discuss about a broader approach to the role of arts and design.
In June Hannie van den Bergh will give two workshops about the interplay of origami and nano science. During these workshops students will get the possibility to make nano structures with origami, to give room for new forms of nano structures, and to think about new applications of (nano)science for societal issues.
