EXHIBITION + LASER

6:00pm to 9:00pm

Art|Sci Gallery, California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA

Design|Media Arts graduate students Symrin Chawla and David Ertel present their collaborative work in Data Burial: In Living Dunes, an installation and vision system that tests the limits of privacy and the site-specificity of networked data. A camera installed in remote desert location sends images and metadata to the cloud in real time, dramatizing the entropy of data and matter in the face of natural forces.

The piece will be complete when the camera is buried by the dunes and loses both solar power and its cellular data signal.

Following the opening reception, invited interdisciplinary speakers present their work pecha kucha style. Afterwards, socializing and a gathering of minds ensue. Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous (LASER) is Leonardo/ISAST's international program of evening gatherings that bring artists and scientists together for informal presentations and conversations.
