Opening Reception: Thursday, June 5th | 5-7 p.m.
Art|Sci Gallery, 5th Floor CNSI
What does it mean to be entangled? In this experimental work, composed of three interactive video installations, Ribeiro invites us to think about ourselves and our affective dimension from a semi-material and non-local perspective.
Prof. Diane Gromala, Founding Director of the Transforming Pain Research Group (TPRG) will be exhibiting the evolving work of this team of world-class researchers. Building on an extensive knowledge base from the fields of Pain Medicine, Interactive Art & Design, Computer Science, Neuroscience and Psychophysics, the research group is developing innovative technologies to address chronic pain, a disease that affects 1 in 5 North Americans. Technologies include meditation, biofeedback, immersive Virtual Reality, visualization, robotics and social media.
Students from Professor Victoria Vesna’s 2010 graduate seminars Data + Flesh, Department of Design | Media Arts, UCLA + Hybrid Worlds: Nano_Biotech + Art Parsons The New School for Design in New York and UCLA Honors class Biotech + Art exhibit their concepts / proposals / presentations of objects, performances / art installations -- all responding to how we are changing our bodies, the food we consume, the animals we breed & the environment we inhabit.
