Enter the Hyper-Scientific 2023 Edition for Professional Swiss and International Artists

Enter the Hyper-Scientific 2023 Edition for Professional Swiss and International Artists

CDH Direction is now welcoming proposals for its Enter the Hyper-Scientific 2023 edition.

The EPFL CDH AiR Program is open to emerging and established Swiss and international artists interested in the area where arts, science, media, and technology intersect.

The program enables invited artists to develop interdisciplinary projects and carry out their research in conjunction with scientists and the PhD and Master students at EPFL. It offers an opportunity to access the cutting-edge engineering, infrastructure, materials, and science developed or made available at EPFL, thus fostering intense experimentation in new forms of expression.

At the end of each residency, the resulting project will be presented in a public exhibition or event held at EPFL Pavilions, Amplifiers for Art Science and Society.

The EPFL College of Humanities (CDH) Artist in Residence (AiR) Program promotes artistic research and experimentation that connects art, humanities, science, and technology by supporting up to four artists for three-month residencies at the EPFL


The goal of the program is to further interpretative and aesthetic avenues around the multifaceted scientific landscape of the EPFL through artistic productions. Forging encounters between artists and scientists in various disciplines, the program aims to establish a dynamic, critical, and inspiring platform for propelling new approaches and aesthetic investigations within the exponentially developing scene at the intersection of art, technology, science, and the humanities.

The program functions as a facilitator and promoter of investigations in multiple directions, many of which will be discovered through the submitted projects themselves.

For its second edition, the program offers three paths:

  • Open Transdisciplinary welcomes international artists and practitioners from all disciplines and media to propose projects which reflect the main intention of the program, namely to investigate the fluid intersection between art, humanities, science, and technology.

  • Scientific Imaging in collaboration with the EPFL Center for Imaging, prioritizes artists familiar with imaging technologies, CGI, digital practices, and visual arts more broadly. Project proposals in the field of data visualization will be also welcome.

  • Environmental Transformation in collaboration with CLIMACT, the Center for Climate Impact and Action, invites visual artists and designers to engage in a creative manner with topical themes related to climate transformation.
