Vision+Light: Processing Perception will explore how artists and scientists create new ways of seeing, how imagery can convey information and thought, and how the process of making images influences the artist and scientist. Join us for fascinating art, cutting edge science, presentations, hands-on demonstrations, and more in this celebration of creativity and inquiry.
Since 2013, Science at Cal has been organizing annual exhibitions of scientists who create art, and artists who work with the sciences. The 2019 exhibition has moved to a larger space – the Worth Ryder Art Gallery at the Department of Art Practice.
Last year’s exhibition, Vision+Light: Converging Senses featured Chemist Michelle Douskey, members of the Helen Wills Neuroscience Center, the UC Berkeley Electron Microscopy Lab, mathematicians, astronomers and microbiologists, talks by Computer Scientist Ken Goldberg, Associate Vice Chancellor of Arts and Design Shannon Jackson, and artists Bull.Miletic, John MacNamara, and Lily Simonson, among others.
This year’s exhibition brings together artists and scientists who explore computer vision, visual cognition, nanostructural color and the science of pigmentation, among other subjects. We will be featuring artists Kate Nichols, Alyssa Lempesis, and Purin Phanichphant, Tangible Interface Designer Noura Howell of BioSENSE Lab.
