LASER: Pulled Apart: Re-engineering and Re-purposing Human Civilization - Livestream

The Thacher Gallery at University of San Francisco is having an art exhibition titled "Pulled Apart" (March 1 - April 25, 2021), for which the exhibiting artists (Terry Berlier, Adam Chin, Gail Wight, Carrie Hott, Cynthia Hooper) were invited to explore the intersection of art and engineering. These artists examine through their artworks the mechanisms of gadgets, scientific instruments, and computer technologies to reveal the internal and external systems that help shape society. What can we learn about ourselves through the act of disassembling and re-engineering these human-made tools?

This panel with media artist Cynthia Hooper, fine-arts photographer Adam Chin, kinetic sculptor Terry Berlier (of the Stanford Art Department), philosopher John Campbell (of UC Berkeley) and cultural historian Piero Scaruffi will explore the exhibition and start a philosophical conversation about: what do we learn from dismantling and rebuilding the objects that humans build? what do we learn about ourselves?
