MRG-GRammar was chosen as one of six FET projects to team up with leading international artists as a part of an initiative that aims to bring together artists and FET projects using best practice methods to create high-impact collaborative outcomes including the production of new artworks, major exhibitions, media campaigns, and socially engaged events including festivals, debates and participatory workshops, called the Future Emerging Art and Technology (FEAT) project.
Through an in-depth collaboration with the project's researchers and reflecting on the project, the artist will explore, engage and communicate these new areas of research to reach the widest possible audiences, opening up societal discussions, raising awareness and enhancing take-up of radically new technologies.Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) push the boundaries of human knowledge. Unconventional ways of thinking and creativity open novel and visionary fields of research that radically shift.
The MRG-GRammar FET project will team up with Anna Dumitriu, a British artist whose work fuses craft, technology and bioscience to explore our relationship to the microbial world, biomedicine and technology.
The collaboration of Anna with MRG-GRammar, along with all FET projects and artists teams under the FEAT project, was published in the European Commission's FET Newsletter, as well as in a press release of the FEAT project.
