2021 SCIENTIFIC DELIRIUM MADNESS

This unique residency, scheduled from July 7 – August 4 in 2021, is a collaborative initiative of Leonardo/The International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology (ISAST) and Djerassi Resident Artists Program. Empiricism and intuition are not mutually exclusive. The goal of the session is to explore and expand how the creativity of scientists and artists are connected.

Scientists should be involved in significant art-related research and/or be practicing a form of art and/or have original ideas on how to integrate aspects of art and science. This includes but is not limited to poetry, playwriting, fiction, creative non-fiction, choreography, music composition, media arts/filmmaking, painting, sculpture, photography, and installation art. Artists selected will have a track record of work driven by the influence of biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, medicine, and environmental or agricultural science. A strong sense of play and experimentation is essential.

LOCATION

The Program is located 40 miles south of San Francisco in a spectacular rural setting in the Santa Cruz Mountains overlooking the Pacific Ocean, yet is within easy driving distance to the entire San Francisco Bay Area.

ACCOMMODATIONS

Living quarters and studio space consist of a four-bedroom ranch house, a twelve-sided barn and the Middlebrook Studios.
The rooms in the Artists’ House are set up to accommodate writers, each with a large desk, work space, and outdoor deck. The Artists’ House also contains the main kitchen, living and dining area, a library, laundry facilities, shared bathrooms, and a large deck.
The Artists’ Barn contains three visual art studios, a spacious dance studio, a darkroom, and a music composition studio with a baby grand and electric piano. The studios are rustic with wood burning stoves and modest sleeping lofts. There is also a kitchen, a large common area, shared bathrooms, and laundry facilities.
The Middlebrook Studios consist of four private live/work studios for writers, media artists and other artist with clean/non-messy projects. The studios each have private bathrooms and outdoor space.
The Program employs a chef who prepares communal dinners Monday through Friday, and provisions both kitchens. Residents are expected to prepare their own breakfasts, lunches, and weekend dinners using ingredients supplied by the Program. We offer vegetarian and gluten free meals, although we cannot guarantee a gluten free environment.
