For those interested in the encounter Science/Art/Tech (and want to join in a parade on saturday night):

New ArtSciSalon Event : ECO-Nuit Blanche and art/science collaboration at the Ontario Science Centre

with
Jennifer Willet – Incubator (U of Windsor)
Ana Klasnja – Ontario Science Centre

Thursday Oct 03, 6:30-8:30
The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
222 College Street – Toronto

Join us for an evening explore recent (and ongoing) collaborations between Incubator: Hybrid Laboratory at the Intersection of Art, Science and Ecology, and the Ontario Science Centre !dea Gallery.

Jennifer Willet (and participating students) will speak about INCUBATOR activities since 2009, and present some of the artworks included in the Ontario Science Centre exhibition and the ECO NUIT PARADE. Curator and Multimedia Producer Ana Klasnja will join us as a special guest.

Bios
Jennifer Willet is an internationally successful artist in the emerging field of BioArt. Her work resides at the intersection of art and science, and explores notions of representation, the body, ecologies, and interspecies interrelations in the biotechnological field. She engages in performance, installation, photography and sculpture based artistic practices, mixed with protocols and life forms from the biological sciences.
Ana Klasnja is senior multimedia producer and curator of the !dea Gallery at the Ontario Science Centre

see you on thursday!

Hey folks! here is another ArtSci Salon event that looks pretty interesting.

Join us for the next ArtSci Salon to explore visual mapping, mathematics and medical data.

iRon Artist + iJoe Scientist = OncoMap

Thursday, November 21, 6:30-8:30pm
Fields Institute
222 College St, Toronto, M5T 3J1
--------------------------------------­----------------------
Ron Wild and Joseph Geraci have been collaborating to fuse their interests and disciplines into the creation of the “OncoMap”. The process consists of folding, pulling, transforming and combining images until a coherent and lively image emerges. Joseph Geraci employs a similar mental process in his own work where he combines mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology and computer science in order to unravel the workings of our molecular circuitry. Together, they decided to create an art piece that dealt with cancer from a scientific / medical perspective in Ron’s style, being careful not to be too literal but clearly including established and novel information about oncology.

featuring:

Ron Wild
Artist and Engineer, “smART Map”

Ron Wild creates intense, multi-dimensional "smART Map" collages. He is an emerging explorer at the art and science frontier, who bridges the divide between the two. With a foot firmly planted in each camp, Ron Wild is a western-Canadian Digital Art / Science Collaborator, currently working in downtown Toronto.

Joseph Geraci
Toronto General Hospital @ Psychiatry and Queen’s University

Dr. Joseph Geraci is a mathematical physicist working in medicine and drug discovery. He uses mathematical structures to strip away the cacophony of noise that is inherent in medical data sets where the goal is the ability to predict the most effective treatment for individual patients. He utilizes graph theory, topology, geometry, statistics, dynamical systems theory and beyond.
