Friday, March 11 - 9:00AM to 9:45AM
I explore the sculptural, experiential, and sometimes humorous possibilities of light and natural phenomena (often referencing the history of science and optical devices), resulting in rainbow machines, periscope dinner table devices, sundials, camera obscuras, nephoscopes, etc. Scientific representations and instruments have influenced both my work and teaching. Along with examples of sculptural installations and photography, and the outcomes of collaborations with scientists, I will discuss two related courses: Art and the Cosmos - Making Giant Sundials co-taught with astro-physicist Woodruff Sullivan and Turkeys in a Wind Tunnel: Artistic Possibilities of Scientific Visualization, an interdisciplinary course that considers scientific representation and instruments, introducing both historical perspectives (i.e., photomicrographs, x-rays, and medical devices) and current practices capitalizing on research labs in Seattle / University of Washington.
