Engineers who think like artists, physicists who thinks like dancers, scientists who think like poets, and designers who think like Mother Nature: These are some of the researchers from the University of California, San Diego on display at a public event on Friday, April 12, 2013 that will extol and explore the virtues of interdisciplinary collaboration and creativity.
UC San Diego’s Sixth College is staging the event, "Audacious Speculations," between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. on April 12, 2013. The presentations will take place on the UCSD campus in Atkinson Hall, the headquarters of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2). (Get directions)
The series of short, performative presentations will showcase how researchers, artists, activists and entrepreneurs can make “something from nothing” – transforming the titular “audacious speculations” into reality. For program details, visit the event website at http://audacious.calit2.net.
LIVE WEBCAST: For those in San Diego or around the world who cannot attend the event in person, we offer a Live Webcast and Discussion Forum, and both will be accessible along with a detailed agenda on the AGENDA + WEBCAST page. The program in its entirety will later be available for viewing on-demand from this same location.
Images and ephemera from the "Audacious Speculations" event will be exhibited in the Sixth College ARTifact Gallery, which is located on the Second Floor of Pepper Canyon Hall. The gallery is part of the Culture, Art & Technology Program of Sixth College.
