Science on Tap: Laura Splan: "Domesticated Viscera"

In this month's talk, Laura Splan, a Brooklyn based visual artist, explores how the biology of the body enters the quotidian landscape through cultural production and historical events. Splan's conceptually driven work employs a variety of media including sculpture, video, photography, digital media and works on paper.

Event starts at 6pm but would encourage folks to start coming in between 5:30 & 5:45 to grab seats.

I am hosting a meetup here for another group as well, so there should be more people.

Science on Tap

Her objects and images interrogate the visual manifestations of our cultural ambivalence towards the human body. She often uses found objects and appropriated images to examine the evolving role of biomedical imagery in our every day lives, which she refers to as the "domestication of viscera".

She often combines signifiers of femininity, domesticity and comfort with those of disorder, aberration and disease. Much of her work is inspired by experimentation with materials and processes including blood, cosmetic facial peel and computerized embroidery.

    Look to the right as soon as you step through the doors. There should be a meetup sign on wall. I will have a table and should make it by 5:30.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
