The Road Where Science and Art Meet. KAIST's - The Second Story

▶ Endless Road

 

「1」The long straight road connecting the western side gate and the northern dormitory area of KAIST
「2」The term also connotes that there is no end in walking along the path of knowledge.
「3」If you are in good condition, it takes about 15 minutes to travel the road on foot; in a reasonably drunken state, it takes 5  minutes on foot; but if you are blind drunk, the road seems endless, and hence its name .

「4」One more thing
It is also the title of KAIST's artist-in-residence program to endlessly pursue synergy between science and art.


The three artists who have joined the second session of KAIST's artist-in-residence program "Endless Road" have commenced their activities. "Endless Road" was established in October 2013 to promote interaction between scientists and artists. Each session of the program offers three selected artists the opportunity to reside on campus and freely communicate with KAIST constituents for a period of six months.


The three artists who participated in the program's first session were writer Wi Gi-cheol (who authored "Let's Play with Logics" and "Life of A 9-Year Old") in the literary area; Sim So-yeon (who worked as assistant director for the movie "Final Recipe) in the scenario writing area; and Nam Ji-ye (who has run serial cartoons on DAUM) in the cartoon drawing area.

 

 

▶ 'Endless Road,' The Second Story

 

The three artists who have joined the second session were selected through an open competition last March. The three selected artists are Kim Gyeong-ju (center of the photo), a TV writer who authored the documentary "The Silence of Upo Swamp" and TV sitcoms "Do the Right Thing," "Soonpoong Clinic," and "Nonstop 4"; Chung Sin-gyu (right), a drama writer-in-residence of CJ E&M who won a writing contest sponsored by the movie channel OCN; and Choi Ppipppyab (pseudonym, left), who has run serial cartoons on NAVER.

 

"Among the comic cartoonists, there is a saying that you cannot be a good writer if you read only cartoons. That's because those who read only cartoons cannot easily look beyond existing boundaries. If you want to create something new, you need to know about another world. That's the reason why I applied for KAIST's 'Endless Road.' I would like to closely scrutinize characteristics unique to KAIST students."- Choi Ppipppyab

 

"I attended a university that offers specialized programs in art. The school has put a lot of effort into attracting Korea's top artists, and poet Hwang Ji-woo, who is my mentor, said that if a group of the nation's top-tier artists, including musicians, architects, painters, directors, writers, and poets just gathered and walked around the campus together, it would give them enormous energy far greater than simple learning. While staying at KAIST, I want to interact with science students, and give and take energy beyond simple meetings." - Chung Sin-gyu


 "KAIST is a space about which I have always been curious and envious. When I had an interview for the artist-in residence program, professors asked me what I wanted the university to do for me. I replied that if the university merely treats us as though we are invisible, then artists-in-residence cannot ask for more. Having a firsthand look at the lives of KAIST students as they are would be a great chance for a story writer like me. I would like to find a new nugget of inspiration here to write a real human drama that makes everyone happy. - Kim Gyeong-ju

 

 

▶ Why Science and Art Go Together


Oh Jun-ho, Vice President for External Affairs and the mastermind of this program, underscored that science and art have many things in common. "In most people's minds, the word 'design' equates with art. However, it is actually a word that is also widely used in engineering. The term 'state of the art' refers to the highest level of general development, for a device, technique, or scientific field, achieved at a particular time. In  this case, 'art' stands for technology. The reason why the word has such diverse applications is that the words 'art' and 'technology’ have the same origin. Since science and art have in common that they create something new, they can positively influence each other.

 

The atomic number 110 "Darmstadtium" was named after the city of Darmstadtium, a suburb of Frankfurt, Germany, where it was discovered. Such radioactive isotopes as Bh (bohrium), Hs (hassium), Mt (Meitnerium), RG (Roentgenium), and Cn (Copernicium) were also discovered by scientists from this city. Moreover, Darmstadtium was one of the most important cities of the German-led art nouveau movement dubbed Jugendstil, and it also has earned a reputation as a host city of one of the most prestigious international music festivals.

 

That science and art came to coexist in the city owes a great debt to the policy of Ernest Louis who ruled the city from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. Among other things, Louis, who was best known as a patron of the arts, founded the Darmstadt Artists’ Colony for architects, designers, sculptors, and craftsmen to provide generous support to its residence artists, while raising the status of the existing Darmstadt Polytechnic to that of a university.

 

For over 100 years, the harmonious coexistence of science and art surely exerted positive effects on the lives of the people in the city. Scientists might head for their lab, passing by streets full of artistic imagination, and artists might be inspired by new scientific discoveries. Such synergy must have served as a driving force for both artists and scientists.

 

"Endless Road" aims to become the starting point of a positive interaction between scientists and artists. The three artists in residence who have come to KAIST with anticipation of positive interaction are looking forward to meeting KAIST constituents from different disciplines in a myriad of ways. The road is open to anyone at KAIST. Why don't you join us?
