EVENT

Justice in a More-Than-Human World


Dates:
Wed Feb 26, 2014 16:00 - Fri Feb 28, 2014

Location:
Santa Cruz, California
United States of America

Presented by the UCSC Science and Justice Working Group,
UCIRA, Openlab & The Digital Arts & New Media program


What are the possibilities and challenges of collaboration in the anthropocene? Justice in a More-Than-Human World is a series of events exploring various modes of humans working with nonhumans—animals, plants, ecosystems, and technologies. How can humans foster more collaborative (and less exploitative) projects with these nonhuman others?

The series begins Wednesday February 26th, 4-6 pm in the Digital Arts Research Center (DARC) Room 108 with a panel discussion on Human/Nonhuman Collaboration across the Arts & Sciences. This event features visiting artist Amy Youngs and UCSC Emeritus Faculty Helen & Newton Harrison. They will discuss the cross-pollination of art and scientific research in their work, with a focus on human/nonhuman collaboration in the worlds of eco art, bio art and interdisciplinary connections with the biological sciences. Amy Youngs will also host a Wormshare Workshop where she will talk about designing for worms and people and how to connect eco-art ideas to real world, everyday actions, followed by an interactive session where attendees will talk about and design their own Wormshare environments, on Thursday February 27th from noon to 2pm in DARC Room 206.

The series continues Friday February 28th, 4-6 pm in Engineering 2 Room 599 with a panel discussion on Bioengineering and Meat Cultures, featuring visiting scholar and artist Oron Catts. Lab-grown meat is being promoted as a response to the harmful effects of conventional factory-farmed meat production; this event will consider the ethical, environmental, and practical implications of such “custom-built collaborators.”

Sponsors for the event include the UCSC Science and Justice Research Cluster; UCSC Digital Arts and New Media; UCSC Open Lab; and the UC Institute for Research in the Arts.

This event series is free and open to the public.

{Re}HAPPENING - April 7th, 2012


Dates:
Sat Apr 07, 2012 18:00 - Sat Apr 07, 2012

Location:
Black Mountain , North Carolina
United States of America

Saturday, April 7th 2012

{Re}HAPPENING is a meeting of creative minds and bodies, drawn to the historic and inspirational site of Black Mountain College’s main campus, known as Lake Eden in Western North Carolina. Once a year, artists come together from various genres and disciplines to cross-pollinate and draw inspiration from these historic grounds. This project has developed from an innovative fundraising and art-based collaboration between the Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center (BMCM+AC) and the Media Arts Project (MAP), balancing the history, tradition and experience of BMCM+AC with the forward thinking and media-based collective of artists that defines the MAP.

The {Re}HAPPENING is part art event, part fundraiser and at its root, a community instigator. All participating artists from years past are invited back, and many of them recruit new artists to join in. Bonds between the artists and the historically rich space are created and strengthened throughout the weekend. New collaborations produce work that expands the ability of each individual, combining talents,strengths and ideas in the tradition of BMC. It is a challenge for artists to balance private time in the studio with public time in collaborative environments. The {Re}HAPPENING provides a context and an event where these two worlds can overlap in wonderfully alluring ways.
