Join us at 5pm on September 28th for a preview reception offering refreshments and the first look at Engaging Technology II: Art + Science, a new special exhibition curated by John Fillwalk, Director of The Institute for Digital Intermedia Arts at Ball State University.
A special performance by two of the featured artists—Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand—follows at 7pm just one building west at the Charles W. Brown Planetarium. (Doors open at 6:30pm and seating is limited.)
About the performance, from the artists: "In 10000 Peacock Feathers in Foaming Acid we use laser light to scan the surfaces of nucleating and dissipating soap bubble clusters. Unlike ordinary light, the laser's focused beam is capable of crawling through the micro and nano structures within a bubble's skin. When aimed at specific angles, this penetrating light generates a large-scale projection of molecular interactions as well as the phenomena of non-linear optics. Bubble behaviors viewed in such proximity evoke the dynamics of living cells (the lipid membranes of which, are direct chemical descendants of soap films)."
