What is ex­per­i­men­ta­tion? What makes art 'ex­per­i­men­tal'? What are the re­sults of aes­thet­ic ex­per­i­ments and why do we need them? Could artists in­vent new modes of ex­per­i­men­ta­tion with/for sci­ence? What are the dif­fer­ences be­tween ex­per­i­ments and in­ven­tions; ex­per­i­ments and fail­ures; ex­per­i­ment and in­no­va­tion?
