Come early for a free drop-in workshop to create your own artistic and scientific visualizations before the talk begins. Doors open at 6:00pm, and the talk begins at 7:00pm sharp.
The relationship between creative experimentation, artistic representation, and the world of science has always been close, and perhaps no closer than in the past few decades. With the aid of digital advancements in motion picture and computer modelling, the artists and filmmakers of today continue to guide and influence mainstream and even modern scientific perceptions about what the future of invention and ingenuity will quite literally “look” like. This talk will examine what artists and filmmakers can teach us about scientific visualization long before a scientific hypothesis or paradigm can be tested and made material, arguing how the world of visual art positions artists as powerful conceptualizers in bridging scientific discovery to the rest world.
