Rarely practiced, the cross fertilization of the contributions between engineers and artists is obviously a source of conceptual and methodological enrichments. Also, receptivity to new ways of seeing the world, the development of critical judgment, the study of creativity and the capacity of modeling develop through a constructive dialogue between specialists of both domains.
The ARNUM© laboratory (Art and Digital Research)) at ESIEA organizes these exchanges and stimulates this positive reflection.
First, it offers to ESIEA students a space to exercise the theoretical and practical imaginative qualities of the engineer.
Concurrently, the cultural teaching involved leads them to put into transdisciplinary perspective the study of the technological changes and the productions that mobilize computer science.
Finally, the laboratory offers its technical expertise and its collaboration to its partners - cultural institutions and artists.
