Adapt-r Scientific Autobiography

“ ... somewhere between imagination and memory” (Aldo Rossi)

Why is it important that creative practitioners reflect on and unveil their modes of practice/research?

The call for Postcards aims to challenge creative practitioners in unveil their Scientific autobiography.

Scientific Autobiography identifies the narrative that a practitioner tells about their professional and research life.

In such narration the practitioner walks through the path of their memory, tracing a “red thread” and identifying connections and relations.

It is a collection of significant moments, insights and reflections through the practitioner’s projects and experiences, coming from the memory of the practitioners themselves. It can be told by different forms: written words, drawings, sketches, diagrams.
