Artists-in-Residence (2023 - 2024)
Studio ThinkingHand is an art duo formed by Rhoda Ting and Mikkel Dahlin Bojesen, based in Denmark. Combining science, technology and industry, their works make stories visible looking at life beyond the human gaze, investigating speculative futures and exploring philosophies that can move us collectively and affirmatively beyond the Anthropocene. During their residency, they are working predominately in collaboration with Professor Giuliana Panieri and other scientists from the Arctic University of Norway, to create glass cores from Ocean floor sediment from extreme environments exploring how they can act as a tool for further scientific research. The glass cores are being displayed in various exhibitions together with ROV footage from expeditions and aims to connect audiences to life in extreme environments across deep time perspectives and explore how learning about the past can work towards speculating shifting evolutions and futures.

Sonia Levy's inquiry-led practice considers shifting modes of engagement with more-than-human worlds. Her EMBracing the Ocean residency project will engage with the Venetian Lagoon "from below" with the aim to bring attention to the city's submerged, life-giving and altered bio-geomorphological processes. Sonia is developing a film in collaboration with marine scientists and will hold participatory workshops with local resource managers and policymakers using the submarine audiovisuals as a catalyst for co-creating strategies for the Lagoon’s management. The film premiered at the Floating Cinema in Venice and will be exhibited locally in a gallery exhibition and in Madrid. A podcast series will also accompany the development of the project. The project will include a residency at the Stazione Idrobiologica Umberto D'Ancona, University of Padova and Sonia’s primary collaborator is Associate Professor Alberto Barausse.
