I’ll be presenting on the panel Abstractions and Automatons: Balancing Myth and the Machine at SLSA 2019: the 33RD Annual Meeting of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts at UC Irvine on Friday, November 8th.
I have contributed live computer vision and a textual sensor feed for #projectamelia, a new interactive live performance collaboration with #bricolagetheater and #probablemodels in Pittsburgh, PA. The show will run through November 2nd.
I gave a talk, “Embedded Computing in the Intimate Everyday” at Nokia Bell Labs Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T). It was great to share my work with the researchers at Nokia Bell, and spend time brainstorming on art and empathy.
The Clarke Center team had a two day visit at Nokia Bell Labs Murray Hill, NJ headqaruters. What an awesome experience! I got to play the voder, one of the original speech synthesis technologies developed at Bell. Many amazing projects came out of E.A.T.’s arts and engineering collaboration in the 60s. I’m excited to develop new work with the Nokia Bell engineers.
With support of the California Arts Council, the Clarke Center for Human Imagination at UCSD will combine state-of-the-art wearable biosensors and machine perception to study individual and culturally-mediated variation in aesthetic engagement during real-world exploration of visual art at the San Diego Museum of Art. This work will examine neurocognitive and physiological correlates of empathy, attention, and emotion in order to explore how art museums can cultivate empathic understanding.
