Initiated by the College of Humanities and amplified by EPFL Pavilions, the Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program reflects the CDH’s mission of fostering transdisciplinary encounters between artists and the scientific community at EPFL. By forging collaborations between artists and scientists in different disciplines, the program aims to establish a platform for propelling new approaches and aesthetic investigations at the intersection of art, technology, science, and the humanities.
