    • Short summary

      Project operates with a competent and very active consortium for a challenging topic, like scientific based modern materials life limits and degradation mechanism, that is an important subject of debate of all visual art creators and not only. The involvement of the practitioners (contemporary artists) is a strong specific of this project and will help the building of an inside point of view on the issue.

      We dare to remark that the project is facing a hard work which for sure will point good aspects and bad aspects in connection with real practice. This project is prepared to find, understand and report all conclusions. As many of us noted, any research program is represented by projects with successful confirmation of estimated results. Like “happy end stories”, many projects are looking and putting in light positive conclusions, and rarely display and underline negative aspects which are as useful as important information. To be warn how not to do, or what do you risk improperly using a technique or a material, could be more important than to be only adviced about correct use of another technology or material.
