(mi-lorenteggio.com) Milan 6 April 2022 – Saturday 9 April The National Museum of Science and Technology enriches its cultural offering by suggesting special activities with artist-in-residence Anders Lind, author of Lines of Action, designed especially for the museum.

Swedish artist Anders Lind meets adults and children to creatively explore the links between technology, art and science, through an interactive installation of sound art, where 3D pipes are transformed into lines running along wall, floor and ceiling and matched with sensors and electronics to create new musical instruments.
Swedish composer, Lind is Creative Director at Umeå University’s Department of Creative Studies. He writes music primarily for orchestras, choirs, ensembles, and soloists, often using electronic or interactive technology. His compositions are distinguished by an experimental approach that invites listeners to embark on an extraordinary musical journey.

His work Lines combines digital technologies with leading technical languages ​​and was created in the context of Future Inventors, a dedicated STEM laboratory supported by the Rocca Foundation. With native content, tools, and languages ​​such as interactive projections, audio arts, video and pixel maps, and creative algorithms, Future Inventors aims to develop an innovative approach to engage and excite children aged 11 to STEM and enrich the teaching of these topics. In school, using new teaching tools for teachers that go beyond the traditional distinction between science and art subjects.

On Saturday 9th April Anders Lind will be in the lab to present his Lines installation and try out the activity of the Smartphone Orchestra (11am and 2pm).

On Sunday, April 10, the Museum’s education staff will lead activities in the Future Inventors’ Lab.

Among other scheduled activities, museum visitors will be able to experience the space experience at the new Base Marte Laboratory, which recreates the Martian base as an innovative STEM experience scenario through an unprecedented live role-playing game. Designed specifically for kids ages 10-14, Base Marte is an immersive environment in which you put yourself in the shoes of an astronaut crew on a mission to the Red Planet to ensure the base’s survival. The lab is part of the national project STEM*Lab – Discovering Stimulating the Transmission of Emotions – selected by the social enterprise Con I Bambini as part of the Juvenile Education Poverty Contrast Fund and coordinated by the Kairs Consortium.

Also this weekend, the journey to science continues in interactive laboratories, where i.lab Biotechnology proposals take turns where plants, animals and microorganisms are observed from a microscope to discover their properties and the products of everyday life that can be found in them and those in the Tinkering Zone, where they can be found. For adults and children from eight years old create DIY pinball machines. For more adults, the YOU & AI digital zone will be open, a digital environment to improve dialogue and public participation on the topic of AI.
