Stanford University and Leonardo/ISAST invite you to the next Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous, an evening of art and science presentations, chaired by Piero Scaruffi.
The evening includes four presentations of art/science projects, news from the audience, and time for casual socializing/networking. Free and open to the public.
7:00-7:25: Lynn Rothschild (NASA Astrobiologist) on "Synthetic Astrobiology"
7:25-7:50: Jonathon Keats (conceptual artist, experimental philosopher) on "A Dilettante's Guide to the Universe"
Keats will discuss what a dilettante can achieve in an age of expertise, and what the combination of unrelated interests can reveal about ourselves and our world.
7:50-8:10: BREAK. Before or after the break, anyone in the audience currently working within the intersections of art and science will have 30 seconds to share their work. Please present your work as a teaser so that those who are interested can seek you out during social time following the event.
8:10-8:35: Stuart Kendall (California College of the Arts/Chair, Critical Studies) on "Domestic Arts: A Fable"
Kendall re-imagines the domestic arts on the model of the aesthetics of everyday life, wherein objects of design, arranged by design, enable us to cultivate our care for the self.
8:35-9:00: Indrani Baruah (Architect, Visual Artist) on "Cultural Re-imaginations: Experiments in Creative Placemaking"
Baruah will speak about the constantly evolving process, methodology and forms as manifested in her current experiments on the River Brahmaputra in Assam, India.
