Eden Studies brings together science, visual arts and architecture to explore the relationship between ecosystems and artificial life. The Hotel Eden, neighbour to the Blue Brain and Human Brain projects (co-funded by the European Commission) in Geneva, serves as an observatory to examine the creation and mapping of a synthetic human brain. The documents, sounds and images resulting from this research are gathered in a dynamic generative archive.

The project Eden Studies is part of Risquons-Tout, section Open School, 12.09.2020-10.01.2021.
The section Open School addresses the key issues of the exhibition through a platform for knowledge transmission and for the redistribution of speech. It unfolds as a critical terrain beyond agreed modes of representation and discursive specialisms.With CLEA Open School, Eden Studies and Intersections of Care.
