This acclaimed program returns featuring the convergence of art and science. Journey through ancient and modern worlds from the nano to cosmic scale. Explore exhibits of microscopy painting video installations and sculpture created by artists and scientists probing our world for deeper understanding.Learn about ancient ceramic intrigue explore physics and the deep sea fold paper with an origami master and join in fascinating conversations on science image and creativity.Of Earth and Fire: Ceramic Chemistry and Culture (and a Little Espionage)How did Asian artisans of old create ceramics of enduring utility and beauty? What did they know pre-modern science about the interactions of earth and fire? And how does modern chemistry inform our understanding of their experiments and highly coveted techniques? Join us on a journey of culture science and intrigue – from the kilns of the ancients to today’s most advanced chemistry lab.Speakers: Lynne Kimura UC Berkeley; Michelle Douskey UC BerkeleyZoology – SEEC Photography at the speed of lightSEEC is a photographic science-art project that investigates how light moves across a subject. This happens at the speed of light and within a few nanoseconds (1 nanosecond = 0.000000001 seconds). Light scattered from objects closer to the camera will be imaged earlier than those further away. Using modern technology we can literally watch light (photo-) in the process of writing (-graphy) an image.Speakers: Branon Klopfer and Thomas Juffmann Stanford
