HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program

HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program

The HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program is an initiative that brings faculty and students from both institutions together to explore unique perspectives on extreme events.  The program aims to encourage collaboration among artists and researchers to examine data, interpret outcomes, and translate results from extreme events in new ways. It is our hope that this dialog will create a stronger community through a shared sense of curiosity and exploration.

The goals of the HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program are:

  • To provide an opportunity for meaningful engagement among engineers, scientists, artists and designers that sparks a creative dialog and leads to new outcomes.
  • To explore systems of communication that translate ideas and provide platforms for engineers, scientists, artists and designers to discuss concepts and develop a common understanding.
  • To create programming between JHU researchers and MICA faculty/students that examines new approaches to HEMI-related materials research and data visualization.
  • To design a framework that serves as a model for sustained, long-term partnership between JHU and MICA.

The Extreme Arts Program provides a flexible and robust framework to support collaborative activities and opportunities. This collaboration between science, engineering, art and design will provide exciting and innovative ways to address and present complex subjects.

The program currently has three components – an Artist/Designer in Residence program for MICA faculty, a Summer Project/Internship program for MICA students and the Extreme Arts Workshops, a series of art and design workshops for Johns Hopkins University students.
