Art + Tech Panel: Networks

Art + Tech Speaker Series

Natalie Bookchin, Artist, CalArts
Kris Cohen, Art History Professor, Reed College
Ricardo Dominquez, Artist, UCSD

This series features conversations between artists and scholars on themes related to art, science, and technology. Participants include contemporary artists and scholars from different fields, from the humanities to science and technology, who deal with similar concepts through different means. At each event, the panelists give brief presentations on their own work and participate in a facilitated discussion on the evening's theme. The panels are organized to coincide with ongoing discussions in Caltech undergraduate classes and are intended to be of general interest to Caltech faculty, students, and the community at large.

The Art + Tech: Networks panel connects artists Natalie Bookchin and Ricardo Dominguez with art historian Kris Cohen to discuss the occupation, manipulation, and innovation of electronic networks in contemporary art, both within their own work and more broadly at the intersection of art and technology.

The Art + Tech Speaker Series is made possible through the support of the James Michelin Distinguished Visitors program established in 1992 to bring to Caltech "notable, innovative thinkers who will be able to spark the imagination of faculty and students alike and stimulate thought and discussion on a wide range issues," with special emphasis on the "creative interaction between science and the arts."
