From Understanding to Creativity in Art and Science Matan Karklinsky and Uri Shafir

The creative process plays an inherent role in the generation of both art and science. During this process, the person acquires insights they did not previously have. In this workshop, led by Matan Karklinsky and Uri Shafir, we will focus on the passage from our well-known territory to an uncharted area, with an emphasis on the individual characteristics of this passage.

* Each participant is asked to prepare a ~3 minute talk about a topic they find interesting, and several questions on this topic which they cannot yet answer.

In this workshop, Anat Vaadia, Dorit Guy-Jelinek, and Nimrod Levin will present a movement-based method used for research in the Störung/הפרעה project, and discuss the meaning of research as a concept from the perspectives of a choreographer, a dance therapist, and a scientist.
