Claudia Jacques
Works in Valhalla, New York United States of America

BIO
Jacques is an interdisciplinary artist, designer, educator and researcher. She holds an MFA in Computer Art (School of Visual Arts, NY, USA) and is currently a PhD candidate at the Planetary Collegium, CAiiA Hub, University of Plymouth, UK. Under Professors Roy Ascott and Søren Brier, Jacques is researching space-time aesthetics in the user-information-interface relationship through the lens of Cybersemiotics. Intersecting art, technology and science, she designs interactive hybrid art and information environments that aim to explore perceptions of space-time and the digital-physical. She collaborates with many artists exhibiting and presenting both nationally and internationally. She has published in Leonardo, TEKs, Art & Engine, etc., and serves as Art Editor for Cybernetics and Human Knowing journal. Jacques is also a participant with three other scholars in a 2014-16 NEH Collaborative Research Project based at Roosevelt University in Chicago. She teaches studio, digital and communication arts, and her studio is in Valhalla NY.

STEAM Artists Reception


Dates:
Sat May 10, 2014 14:00 - Sat May 10, 2014

Location:
White Plains, New York
United States of America

This exhibition explores the intersections of science, technology, engineering, math and creativity. Inspired by the STEM to STEAM dialogue in education, this exhibition presents artists using the interdisciplinary concepts of STEM to explore how science, technology and art overlap, interact, and innovate. Presenting imaginative possibilities that are poetic and pragmatic, aesthetic and forward-thinking, each of these artists employs a deeply personal vision. They bring a reflective and often transformational perspective to our complex world through the open-ended, questioning language of art.

Curated by Patricia Miranda

Education, Arts, Technology (E.A.T.) Forum


Dates:
Tue May 20, 2014 14:00 - Tue May 20, 2014

Location:
White Plains, New York
United States of America

Discussion for educators across disciplines to engage in envisioning the future. Panelists will converse about their integration of arts technology into their curricula and its impact on digitally native students.

Keynote Speaker: Claudia Jacques, doctoral candidate, Planetary Collegium, Plymouth, U.K.

Panelists: Professor Chris Kaczmarek, Fine Arts, Purchase College; Professor Deborah Krikun, Digital Arts, Westchester Community College; Dr. Richard S. Hyland, Global Business, Westchester Community College.

The E.A.T. Forum is being presented in conjunction with ArtsWestchester’s upcoming exhibition, STE(A)M: STEM + ART, which is a manifestation of the key concepts being discussed by the panel. Each piece in the show, which has been curated by Patricia Miranda, features the skillful pairing of arts and technology, an exploration of the innovation that is created when ART and the core academic subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics intersect.

Sponsored by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, the exhibition promises to carry on the tradition of innovation and collaboration of all disciplines.

Gallery Reception: Friday, March 28, 5 pm to 8 pm

Five male artists use code, drawing, mail, software, sound, sculpture, and video to explore the intersections of education, art and technology. Highlighting process and practice, this exhibition seeks to involve the viewer both physically and metaphorically as form emerges from function within the gallery environment.

OPPORTUNITY

Cybersemiotics and Transdisciplinarity II: Focus on new developments in biosemiotics and culture analysis. (12 - 16 August 2013)


Deadline:
Mon Jun 03, 2013 00:00

Location:
Frederiksberg, Denmark

The course is first of all an explanation and exploration of the integrative transdisciplinary framework Cybersemiotics. See a short description of Cybersemiotics in Glossarium-BITri: http://glossarium.bitrum.unileon.es/glossary/cybersemiotics. The primary curriculum is: Cybersemiotics: Why Information is not enough first published in 2008 at Toronto University Press and again in 2010 (find it cheapest on www.bookfinder.com ) . You can also find it as a Google book. You are expected to have read it carefully plus the following papers by Brier and the other speakers.

We will study the integrative synthesis in Cybersemiotics and how it is carried out in two steps: The first is to accept two major and very different transdisciplinary paradigms as both being legitimate: 1. The cybernetic-informational approach leading to cognitive science’s information processing paradigm and second order cybernetics, autopoiesis theory and Luhmann’s system science 2. The Peircean phaneroscopic, triadic, pragmaticistic, evolutionary, semiotic approach to meaning, leading to modern biosemiotics. Of these 1. is based on an entropic and mathematical definition of information and self-organization in a material and informational world or in autopoietic systems, but with no concepts of first-person conscious experience and meaningful linguistic intersubjective communication; 2. is based on a phenomenological intersubjective world of partly self-organizing triadic sign processes in an experiential embodied, meaningful world.

The second step involves following and explaining the development from first order cybernetics to second order cybernetic and autopoiesis theory from Gregory Bateson through Heinz von Foerster to Maturana and Varela, ending with Niklas Luhmann’s threefold autopoietic system theory. Furthermore, embodiment theory from Lakoff and Johnson plus Merleau-Ponty is discussed. An integration of these views with a Peircean biosemiotics is shown in a transdisciplinary philosophy of science model that will be explained and discussed. All this will be lectured on by Søren Brier during the first part of the week in interaction with the course participants. The second part of the week will bring in researchers who have contributed to the development and applications of the idea of Cybersemiotics.
