Natalie Jeremijenko
http://va-grad.ucsd.edu/user/view/31
Natalie Jeremijenko is a new media artist who works at the intersection of contemporary art, science, and engineering. An important part of Jeremijenko's artistic strategy is to enable public discourse through access to accurate information about scientific claims. Her work takes the form of large-scale public art works, tangible media installations, single channel tapes, and critical writing. It investigates the theme of the transformative potential of new technologies - particularly information technologies. Specific issues addressed in her work include information politics, the examination and development of new modes of particulation in the production of knowledge, tangible media, and distributed (or ubiquitous) computing elements.

Paul Benjamin
http://csis.pace.edu/robotlab/
Dr. Benjamin earned his doctorate in computer science from New York University in 1985. He worked for six years at Philips Laboratories before entering academia. Currently, he is professor of computer science and director of the Robotics Lab at Pace University. His research focuses on applying semigroup theory and algebraic linguistics to robotics, problem solving and intelligent agent architectures.

Arrive early and view our current exhibition, "Synthesis and Distribution: Experiments and Collaboration", on view through Dec 16th.

Jonah Brucker-Cohen will discuss his work in the theme of  "Deconstructing Networks"  in both physical and online instantiations.

Some projects he will discuss include BumpList, an email community for the determined, Alerting Infrastructure!,  a website hit counter that destroys a building, PoliceState a fleet of radio controlled policecars who's movements are dictated by keywords sniffed on a local network, and SimpleTEXT a performance that is controlled by participants through texting messages from their mobile phones.
