Noema Media & Publishing has published the eBook Art and Digital Creativity for the Construction of a Complex Imaginary, edited by Giada Totaro, which reports the experience of STEAM Atelier and the BEcoming Animals laboratory, held in Lecce last Summer. It contains contributions written by Giada Totaro, Pier Luigi Capucci, Jatun Risba, Kristóf Fenyvesi, Giorgio Cipolletta and Roberta Sozzo.
The STEAM experience consists in the quest to integrate the arts and humanities into the sciences, especially at the educational level. This debate, of international reach, is called “From STEM to STEAM” – STEM being the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics whereas STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art (and Design), and Mathematics.
Jatun Risba wrote the chapter BECOMING ANIMAL: Why it mattered in the past and why it matters today? and the Physical Lab/Dance of Life notes.
