Art + Tech Panel: Information Systems and Culture
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.
For more information on the panelists, please visit their websites:
- Ricardo Dominguez, Artist and Associate Professor of Visual Arts, UCSD
- Keller Easterling, Writer, Architect, and Professor in the Yale School of Architecture
- K. Mani Chandy, Simon Ramo Professor of Computer Science, Emeritus, Caltech
The Art + Tech: Information Systems and Culture panel will begin with presentations by each speaker followed by discussion.
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."
