This colorful, lively slide lecture will feature the work of visual artist *Dr. Todd Siler, whose adventures in the arts and sciences over the past three decades have produced a diverse body of original artwork that aims to transform and transcend all forms of compartmentalized knowledge. He refers to this integrative work as “ArtScience” as it fully melds various experimental approaches to creative inquiry, discovery and learning. In addition to showing some vivid examples of his artwork, Todd will end his lecture with a glimpse of his company’s new Think Like A Genius 2.0 software, which is a 3D authoring tool that enables everyone to discover and explore one’s creativity in exciting, playful and productive ways. As Todd will relate, the collaborative creation of this versatile creativity and communication tool marks a milestone in the evolution of ArtScience concepts and their applications to everyday life. *Dr, Todd Siler is the first recipient of a PhD in Visualization from M.I.T.
