July 30 - Aug 10, 2018 | UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Lecture and workshop instructor on Biomimicry, Ecological Thinking and Plastics for the Art/ Sci Nanolab, a 2 week intensive for junior and senior high school students. The 2018 workshop is titled Ecological Mind: Rock, Paper, Planktons, Scissors, Plastics. The Nanolab, formed by artist Victoria Vesna and scientist James K. Gimzewski of UCLA, “…was designed around the principle that nano-science requires fresh ways of thinking and new methodologies….the future of nanotechnology is determined not just by scientific knowledge, but also by application of creative thought and imagination that go beyond a traditional reductionist approach”. This innovative program encourages youth to think inter-disciplinarily between art and science, avoiding the traditional separation of these fields, and is team taught by artists, scientists, and guest speakers with tours of high tech labs.
