« Field_Notes – HYBRID MATTERs » is an art&science field laboratory organized by the Finnish Society of Bioart at the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station in Lapland/Finland. Five groups, hosted by Marko Peljhan and Matthew Biederman (Arctic Perspective Initiative – API) with Leena Valkeapää, Richard Pell and Lauren Allen (Center for Postnatural History), Antye Greie aka AGF, Antti Tenetz and Lea Schick will work for one week in the sub-Arctic Lapland. Together with a team of five selected collaborators, they will develop, test and evaluate specific interdisciplinary approaches in relation to the notion of Hybrid Ecology.

Anything  has a physical and technological aspect as hybrid matter and as part of a Hybrid Ecology. Hybrid Ecology is a thought vehicle to think about converging ecologies. It is unfolded through the multiple interactions of its elements and actors in physical and digital spaces. Actors can include for example well established or new biological organisms, things, networks and machines as well as products of human activity like goods, trash, waste or landscapes and more.

Field_Notes – HYBRID MATTERs is in search of artistic and scientific responses to converging ecologies. The local sub-Arctic ecology and environment, as well as the scientific research and infrastructure of the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station will act as fields and catalyst for the work carried out from 14th  to 20th September 2015. The premise is that in the simple ecology of the sub-Arctic indicators of a Hybrid Ecology are easier to identify then in the copious ecologies of the south.


Application process:
They are looking for 25 artists, scientists or other practitioners, which are interested to collaborate and work in one of the five groups. They warmly welcome artists, scientists and practitioners from different fields to apply.

Application Deadline: 29th of Mai 2015 midnight EEST, UTC +3 


They will pay for the journey from Helsinki to Kilpisjärvi and back, as well as for full board and accommodation at the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station for the whole working week.
Participants from outside of Finland have to take care about travel to Helsinki and possible accommodation in Helsinki themselves.

« Field_Notes – HYBRID MATTERs » is a project by the Finnish Society of Bioart and part of the HYBRID MATTERs and CHANGING WEATHERS program. It is co-funded by the Nordic Culture Fund, the Creative Europe programme of the European Union and the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture.
