"The Invisible Lab" brings together the latest works created under
the umbrella of the project BLINDSPOT, initiated in 2004 by Herwig
Turk with Paulo Pereira.
BLINDSPOT creates art objects and devices that seek to confront the
symbolic value of perception both as contaminant and as part of the
construction process of scientific knowledge.
The approach isolates and highlights aspects, usually invisible and
peripheral, which are part of the process of scientific production.
The project aims at giving the contingencies, the determinisms and
the circumstances that affect the formation /construction of an
observation /representation a dramaturgical protagonism by,
exploring, in artistic terms, the epistemological foundations of
science including the principle of falsification (Popper ), the
uncertainty (Heisenberg) or the incompleteness (Gödel).
Moreover, it proposes a reflection on the social representation of
scientific knowledge and on the imagination that science serves.
BLINDSPOT focuses on the ideological implications, the conceptual and
philosophical notions such as truth or objectivity, often associated
with scientific practice. Finally, the project promotes an integrated
and constructive art and science liaison as activities that share
methods, procedures and a determination to find new ways of
