Another first for Bangalore!

Thomas Heidtmann bangaloREsident@Srishti presents the first-ever space-art hackathon, appropriately titled SPARTH!

Hack + Marathon = Hackathon

SPARTH is a 48-hour hackathon focusing on the relation between Space and Arts through interdisciplinary work in the scope of Science and Technology. The outcome of the first edition of SPARTH is expected to be pieces, prototypes or articulated processes of art that could be exhibited.

What is it aiming for?
The goal is to engage and connect local art and science communities, institutes, companies and individuals, as well as to connect the open source and DIY culture with the intellectual property side and academia. The SPARTH-Team is aiming for participants such as local artists, artist groups, students, space engineers, astrophysicists, creative technologists, and enthusiasts, to collaboratively build a physical outcome using materials that will be provided and participants bring along.

Why is it important?
SPARTH is the perfect scenario to create and explore unusual innovative possibilities. The hackathon will mix disciplines, strategies and methodologies from the field of arts, science and engineering, to enrich the knowledge of the participants. The results of such hybridisation are not only valuable in themselves, but ideally also represent this juncture between participants and disciplines. The SPARTH-Team proposes 21st-century-ready access to artistic practice and space research.
