Events Description

Picture this – a world where AI invades human creativity, bacteria invade our brains, and invisible technological signals penetrate all natural environments. Where invasive species from plants to humans transform spaces where they don’t belong, technology infiltrates every aspect of our daily lives, and the waste of human inventions ravages our natural environments.

That world is here, and the time is now. Can we recognize and better understand how these invasive systems transform or become part of our world? Through visual art, multimedia installations, and interactive experiences, join artists and scientists at “Collisions Festival: Invasive Systems” to explore the delicate and complicated nature of how both living and inanimate things redefine our lives and environments.

This weekend festival includes:

  • An art-science exhibition showcasing collaborative works by three artist/scientist pairs, and independent works by six artists.
  • Opening night reception with performances by Edzi’u (Fri)
  • A hands-on workshop on DNA sonification (Sat)
  • Curator’s tours (3:15-3:45pm) & guided discussions (4-4:45pm) with festival curator Char Hoyt (Creative Director, Curoisity Collider) (Sat/Sun)
