Roberta Buiani

Roberta Buiani is an interdisciplinary artist and media scholar, and the artistic director of the ArtSci Salon at the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto). She is interested in how scientific and technological mechanisms translate, encode and transform the natural and human world, and how new interdisciplinary approaches may help comprehend its increasing complexity. Her recent SSHRC-funded research creation project draws on feminist technoscience and on collaborative encounters across the sciences and the arts to investigate those newly emerging (queer survivors) or newly created (synthetic life) life forms exceeding the categories defined by traditional methods of classification. Her artistic work is site-specific, itinerant and collaborative and has travelled to art festivals (Transmediale; Hemispheric Institute Encuentro; Brazil), to community centres and galleries (the Free Gallery Toronto; Immigrant Movement International, Queens, Myseum of Toronto), and science institutions (RPI; the Fields Institute). Her writing has appeared in Space and Culture, Cultural Studies and The Canadian Journal of Communication among others. With the ArtSci Salon, she has launched a series of experiments in "squatting academia”, by re-populating abandoned spaces and cabinets across university campuses with SciArt installations. She holds a PhD in Communication and Culture from York University (CAN). ArtSci Salon website: Personal

This international project fosters research links between Canada and the global south, exploring the impact of laws that criminalize sexual orientation and gender identity, the ways in which LGBT and human rights groups are organizing to resist this criminalization, and the implications for human rights policy formation, social services, and immigration and refugee policies. The work combines documentary and participatory video with qualitative interviewing, focus groups, legal data research and analysis to make a unique contribution to documenting and analyzing criminalization, asylum and resistance to criminalization within and beyond regions. Envisioning will capture and contribute to history-in-the-making of distinct but linked struggles at a key moment of national and global change.
