The Art of 'Her'

PRESENTED ON APR 25, 2017
IN CAMBRIDGE @ VOL 9

Loreto Valenzuela talks about "The art of 'Her'". “...real adventures, I reflected, do not happen to people who remain at home: they must be sought abroad." From An encounter by James Joyce. Human encounters, as we all know, are inevitable. Most humans, adhering to their daily routine, tend to have encounters with the same people. However, when one leaves the routine and for example goes on holiday one finds themselves with many more fortuitous encounters than usual. What exactly counts as a fortuitous encounter, what effect may it have on ones life? This presentation will invite you to explore the links between art, curiosity and fortuitous human encounters.

Curiosity without Limits: Play, Art and a T. rex Named Sue

BY ÁLVARO AMAT
@ VOL 2 ON FEB 29, 2016

"The choice isn't about science and are, it's about living and not living."

In "Curiosity without Limits: Play, Art and a T. rex Named Sue" from PechaKucha Night Batavia Vol. 2, Álvaro Amat works at the Field Museum of Natural History, where Sue, the world-famous Tyrannosaurus rex, is the star of a collection of some 30 million objects. His experience collaborating with the Field Museum’s scientists in the creation of exhibitions that inspire curiosity led him to combine art and science in spontaneous explorations and experiments with his son, Nicolas. As an artist, educator, and parent, Álvaro attempts to create an in-between space of curiosity and wonder to break the barriers between reason and imagination for the integral formation of a more complete, creative, and happy individual.
