ACCESS: Artist and Scientist Collaborations

Other Videos From This Series:

ACCESS brings together artists and scientists to create collaborative and accessible views of scientific research for visitors to the New York Hall of Science through unique immersive experiences. The 2018 collaborations brought together astronomers, visual designers, theater artists and performers on the theme of space exploration. We have documented the collaboration process for two years, filming with the artists and researchers in their studios and during installation and performances at NYSCI.

For three years, Really Useful Media has been the most amazing partner in this endeavor. With a scrupulous lens, combined with an understanding and appreciation for our work, they have traveled around and outside of NYC to capture the studio visits, rehearsals, prototypes, deep conversations and a few arguments that have all lead up to installations for the museum floor. At the end of each program cycle, NYSCI has received beautifully crafted videos that tie the complexities of the ACCESS program, and all of its moving parts, into compelling narratives that mean current scientific research and important conversations about scientific communication are being shared widely. ACCESS would not be the same program, if it weren’t for Really Useful Media.
