2012 - 2015

Soft Control is a multi-year project in the European region which aims to be a window for artists, scientists and other cultural agents. The project wants to open the labs and research lines of these agents to specialised and unspecialised audiences, while developing a framework that allows science and culture to share knowledge, methodologies and experimental and critical thinking models.
