Leonardo Art/Science Evening Rendezvous (LASER Series)

The Stanford LASERs are part of a national program of gatherings that brings artists and scientists together for informal presentations and conversation with the audience. Each evening event, free of charge and open to the public, will present four artists, scientists, thinkers, inventors, and scholars who are working on paradigm shifts. Each evening also allows the audience to socialize and encourages people in the audience to briefly introduce their own work. Chaired by cultural historian Piero Scaruffi. The evening of March 18th will feature presentations by:

  • Roger Malina is a space scientist and astronomer, and currently a Distinguished Professor of Art and Technology, and Professor of Physics, at the University of Texas at Dallas and Directeur de Recherche, for the CNRS in France. He founded the ArtSciLab at UT Dallas.
  • Chris McKay is Planetary Scientist with the Space Science Division of NASA Ames.
  • Piero Scaruffi is a cognitive scientist who has lectured in three continents and published several books on Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science, the latest one being “The Nature of Consciousness” (2006).
  • Katharine Hawthorne is a San Francisco based dancer and choreographer who likes to watch thinking bodies in motion.
  • Allison Leigh Holt is a San Francisco-based artist whose work combines video and sculpture, sound, diagrams, and installation to investigate and model the relationships between multi-dimensional reality, knowledge and cognition, and what it means to be human
