experimental age

I just happened to come across a citation by Bruno Latour – used as a teaser for a forthcoming conference on experimentation in Sydney…

“We have entered the experimental age…Experiments are no longer conductedjust in the laboratory. They have become collective experiments that concerneach and every one of us.” Bruno Latour, 2004

and a link to the conference’s call for papers here

and the first paragraph of the presentation:

“What is experimentation? What makes art ‘experimental’? What are the results of aesthetic experiments and why do we need them? Could artists invent new
modes of experimentation with/for science? What are the differences between
experiments and inventions; experiments and failures; experiment and
innovation? How do we set up ethico-scientific-aesthetic experiments?”
