Institute of Arts and Sciences offers LASER talk on Oct. 28


UC Santa Cruz’s Institute of the Arts and Sciences will present its first “LASER” talk of the 2014-15 academic year on Tuesday, October 28, at the Digital Arts Research Center.

The Leonardo Art/Science Evening Rendezvous (LASER) is a national program of evening gatherings that bring artists, scientists, and scholars together for informal presentations and conversations.

The goal of the series is to feature compelling new developments in the arts and sciences, and to attract audiences that would not normally be found at the same gathering.

The October 28 event will include presentations by three UC Santa Cruz professors–Carolyn Dean (“Moving Stones: An Inka Perspective”), Stacy Philpott (“Urban Garden Insect Biodiversity: Fascinating and Functional”), and Karen Tei Yamashita (reading from her new book Anime Wong: Fictions of Performance)–plus scientist and artist David Glowacki from the University of Bristol (UK) and Stanford (“Modeling Humans as Energy Fields”).
