Recommended this Friday: Knowledge of Hacking
Knowledge Hacking at Worth Ryder Gallery, UC Berkeley
September 15-October 9, 2010
Art/Science Panel: Friday, September 24, 2-3 PM
Knowledge Hacking invites artists to use the university research environment as raw material for their work. The three projects selected demonstrate a range of ways in which scientists and artists might share their expertise, to better investigate how we understand and engage with our world.Wonderarium is a proposal for a large-scale floating terrarium in Oakland’s Lake Merritt (planned for 2012), for which the artists have developed a small-scale prototype and innovating techniques for plant cultivation under extreme conditions. Energy Harvesting as Public Art includes interactive objects, which incorporate nascent technologies in development at UC Berkeley to harness and make visible the kinetic energy of human movement. Limbiqueaims to facilitate the development of a three-dimensional, topographical understanding of the brain's neural architecture, visualizing cognitive activity in three dimensions to create the framework upon which a deeper knowledge of neural function and regional intercommunication can be built.
Please join us Friday September 24 at 2 pm for the Art/Science Panel, and hear the artists discuss how their projects came together and what they learned from their collaborations with scientific researchers with moderator Ken Goldberg.
