ARTificial Life, Robotics, and Emergence
Ken Rinaldo, Professor of Art and Technology, Ohio State University
Thursday, Sept. 20, 5 PM Ferguson Auditorium, 600. S. Michigan Ave.
Columbia College Chicago
Professor Rinaldo’s interdisciplinary media art installations investigate the intersections between natural and technological systems. He integrates organic and electro-mechanical elements to assert a confluence and co-evolution between living and evolving technological material. His talk, featuring a DVD presentation of his installations, will explore theories on living systems, artificial life, interspecies communication and the underlying beauty and pattern inherent in the nature and organization of matter, energy, and information.
The one-hour conversation begins at 5pm and follows a brief reception.
