Event Details

Join in an evening Silicon Valley is known for when scientists, artists, technologists, musicians, and more enter the halls of  SETI Institute to discuss areas in which art and science are converging.  This Salon style event is one of a kind and invites everyone from all areas to come meet, learn and discuss areas in which art and science are becoming one.  

The event is free and refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to p@scaruffi.com as space is limited.  If you have a personal Website mention it as well so he can add a link to it on the official RSVP list.

Social networking is highly encouraged and everyone is given an opportunity to tell the audience what they are currently working on in between speakers. 

Here is a rundown of the speakers for August 2010:

6:45pm-7:00pm: Socializing/networking. During the evening anyone in the audience is welcome to present their work in 30 seconds.

7:00-7:30:  Renetta Sitoy (artist) on "The Internet as Media"
Employing a range of strategies for acquiring, organizing, and re-contextualizing information found on the World Wide Web; exploring themes such as online communities (in which participants communicate through mediated, self-defined personas), "cyber-stalking," as well as using the Internet as a means of self-discovery and recollecting personal histories.

7:30-8:00:  Shona Kitchen (San Jose State Univ's CADRE) on "Hyper-functional Landscapes and Art" Airports are a work of art in themselves; an aesthetic framework for routing people through the microcosm of airline travel. Airports have what one might call a "captured" audience, creating a perfect place for art to take advantage and send the traveler on an alternative journey within a journey.

8:00-8:15: BREAK

8:15-8:45: Leila Takayama (Stanford Univ and Willow Garage) on "Throwing Voices"
Audio projection technologies in our everyday environments throw our voices to new locations in ways that influence our experiences of closeness, comfort, and dominance. Psychological experiments demonstrate several ways that the spatial locations of projected voices influence how well we perform on tasks, how psychologically distanced we become, and how we feel about each other.

8:45-9:15: Fred Kuttner (UC Santa Cruz) on "Can Quantum Mechanics Save Science from Newton's Sleep?" Newtonian physics and its sequelae in the sciences including biology and psychology point to a comprehensible yet pointless universe. Quantum mechanics may offer a way out, but there are dangers.

9:15:  Piero Scaruffi on the next Leonardo Art/Science evening
I will simply preview the line-up of speakers for the next Leonardo evening.

9:15pm-9:45pm: Discussions, more socializing
You can mingle with the speakers and the audience

Please RSVP to p@scaruffi.com and mention your Website so he can list it on the RSVP list.
