Art & Space: When Artists and Scientists Explore Black Holes
Mon, 12 December 2016, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM CET
REGISTRATION OPENS DECEMBER 1, 12:00PM
TheArtian.com is back on Campus Madrid with our monthly Art & Tech events (Join our Meetup group to stay updated!). For the last event of 2016 we have organized an exciting event!!
This time we will host S.I.E (Space Interactional Experience) Group - an interdisciplinary art, science and technology group whose key divulgative concern is to bring people "one step closer" to the immensity of the physical reality perceived through the limits of human knowledge /cognition.
In this exciting event they will talk about what brought them together and they will present thier first project “sound sculpture”- audiovisual installation, programmed in open source code, which simulates an electro-acoustic system and translates the physical phenomena that occur around black holes into sound!
Through this process, they aim to bring the spectators into a purely immersive experience, which mimics the physical reality of this, very literally, singular phenomenon.
18:30 - Registration
19:00 - Project Presentation by Daniel Pérez Grande, Dr. Miguel Oliveros, Celia Talamante
19:15 - Interactive Demostration with the Audience (Get Ready to Explore Space!)
19:45 - Panel and Q&A: exploring the realtionship between artists and scientists.
THE EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE IN ENGLISH, Q&A Might be in Spanish.
About The Speakers:
Daniel Pérez Grande - BSc, MSc. Aerospace Engineer, currently pursuing a PhD on plasma physics for advanced Space propulsion. His main passion is Humanity’s exploration of Space and has strived to help popularize the science and engineering behind these incredible feats. More broadly, he is interested in the
cross-sections between Science and the civil society, including Arts and Politics, and in the ever-fascinating discipline of Futurism.
Dr. Miguel Oliveros - BA (Hons), MRes, PhD. Fine artist, researcher and programmer exploring the representation of the sublime and immaterial object/experience via new media technologies, such as, for example: reactive immersive and performative audiovisual installations, emphasizing in open source languages and code. He has extensive experience in the form of commissions, patronages, collaborations and exhibitions in the creative industries & academia. He is the Creative Director of A.P.A (Acústica Profesional Aplicada).
Celia Talamante - Telecommunications engineer, specialized in sound and image. Currently working with open source code and object orientated programming, her interest centres on developing tools that generate real time, reactive visual environments. She collaborated in diverse artistic productions, giving technical support and has also developed her own performances. Nowadays, she combines artistic creation with her business, where she specializes in audiovisual installation and acoustic engineering.

S.I.E Members Who Will Attend:
Sthef Folgar - Visual artist working on the boundaries of known places and our perception of them, by creating images that breaks our reference points. Master’s degree in contemporary photography and recently awarded
with a grant to attend a Master of Arts, has worked in different photography, film and art installations projects. Currently has co-founded and works in a collective of artists focused on the development of visual projects.
Pablo Méndez Zapardiel - His work spans many disciplines. He combines his knowledge as an architect with his passion around Art, Design and Technology. Aware that the future challenges go through learning how to solve complex situations, he works with multidisciplinary groups. Nowadays he develops innovation projects as a co-founder, trying to generate new experiences by using Art and Science.
Alejandro Serrano Zaera - Frontend and backend programmer with training in graphic design and user experience. Fascinated b y New Technologies and Technological Development Business with highly innovative content, using Agile development methodologies. He loves to gamify Solidarity Projects for ngo organizations, for that reason he created “Gamification for a cause”, a non-profit organization that is primarily dedicated to training courses and gamify projects for NGOs.
David Morante González - BSc, MSc. Aerospace Engineer, currently doing a PhD on Space Trajectory Optimization, developing new tools that could make interplanetary missions more affordable. He is fascinated by the cutting-edge technology developed by the space sector and willing to use this knowledge to help others. He is also passionate about Astronomy and the mysteries of outer space.
