Bio Lux: The original function of clothing is to shield human from weather conditions. The garment designed for a pianist Jocelyn Ho flips this function inside out: it does not protect from the external environment but exposes and interacts with the internal physiology of her body. Sensors on the pianist’s body detect her heartbeat, movement, and energy to act as triggers between the music and the illuminated attire Nagasawa designed. By creating an interactive sartorial (wearable) art activated by bodily rhythms, the performing body becomes an augmented artwork which transforms the performance. This clothing, made from “woven” pulsating optical fiber creates a soulful journey between mind, body, and music. (from Synaesthesia Playground dossier)

Robert Whitman, Reflections on Recent Works: Swim and Local Report
20151109_Robert-Whitman2_750x380
For the second installment of the 2015-2016 Stony Brook University Art History & Criticism Lecture Series we are pleased to announce that multimedia artist Robert Whitman will discuss his two latest projects: Swim (2015) and Local Report (2012). Whitman’s career spans multiple decades and disciplines. His recent theatrical performances employ telecommunications networks and multisensory elements to conceive new communities of spectatorship in the theater and gallery alike. The programming committee is thrilled to host Robert Whitman on the 50th anniversary of the founding of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), a vibrant community of artists that redefined what constituted art in the twentieth century.

Attendance is free and open to the public, with a small reception of wine and hors d’oeuvres following the Q&A.

We hope to see you there.
