"Weird Science: The Spectrum of Vision/The Science of Photography"

Friday, March 27 - 3:00PM to 3:45PM
Gold Room

As the title playfully suggests, we center our artistic practice on
a notion of a productive and intentional misunderstanding of
science. This approach not only serves as an art-making methodology,
it is also a potential model to address, as educators, the
integration/appropriation/bastardization of scientific principles
in a lens-based art-making context. We organize our perspective
around an investigation of vision in terms of its surrounding
historical condition, and examine different modes of vision
(biological, camera, computer, etc.) in order to consider scientific
discoveries that have been largely captured and analyzed through
photography.
