Micro-Symposium: Art / Science / Spectacle
Recorded Saturday, September 12, 2009, 2 pm.
Anthony McCall, Barbara Stafford and Paola Bertucci with an introduction by Madeleine Grynsztejn. How do immersive artworks, such as those created by Olafur Eliasson, play upon our attraction to the spectacular and a fascination with the mechanics of how things work? Presentations by internationally renowned speakers trace the history of this phenomenon in art and science, and relate it to wide-ranging developments in consumer culture, optics, psychology, philosophy, and technology.
