The Independent Artist and Researcher is one of the current rebel species among humanity, bravely defying two rigid systems – the art world and contemporary science practice. And if this rebel is optimistic, empathic and free in choosing subjects and collaborations, he/she receives even more suspicion.
Driven by curiosity, the Independent Artist and Researcher is not interested or even incapable in playing the codes of both world systems. For him/her fulfilling expectations on system-conform behaviour and receiving system-based rewards are of no major interest. Learning, experiencing and transformation of knowledge into singular or collective works are the joy of life.
What is the Independent Artist and Researcher looking for? Where reality and perception appear being confounded, the creation of relationships and provision of value become important for a potential impact, not on purpose, but emerging as independent quality.
