Polytech.Science.Art implements the research and other experimental projects of Russian and international experts. The program started earlier in 2014 with a series of workshops whose participants studied hacktivism and avant-garde media with Danja Vasiliev (Russia/Germany); identified themselves within the interactive environment guided by Sonia Cillari (Italy); applied methods of augmented reality to the urban spaces directed by Arturo Castro (Spain); learned about fibertronics and made an interactive map of Moscow on e-textile-enabling microcomputers and sensors together with Artemis Papageorgiou (Greece); visualized their own brain signals using neural interfaces with Enzo Varriale (Italy) and explored sonic environment at the improvised laboratory by Aalborg University (Denmark).
