Art, science meld for unusual lecture series at UC Davis

All are welcome at the next Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous, a speaker series at UC Davis that focuses on the “borderland between art and science,” an organizer says.

The event is planned from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7, in 3001 Plant and Environmental Sciences at UCD. A half-hour of networking will be followed by Eve Warnock and Kate Harrington speaking at 7 p.m., Frank Pietronigro at 7:25 p.m., Robert Buelteman at 8:10 p.m. and Robert Edgar at 8:35 p.m.

Discussion and networking from 9 to 9:30 p.m. will conclude the evening.

* Warnock and Harrington will discuss “We are HERD: Exploring Animal and Human Herding Behavior Through Research, Scenario and Performance.”

Warnock is a multimedia artist who melds ancient techniques of art-making with modern technologies. She is a costume and set designer as well as a director for live performances and films.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in arts and humanities from Ohio State University and a master of fine arts from UC Santa Cruz’s Digital Arts and New Media program. Her work explores the boundaries of human and animal relationships, dissecting primal instincts as a way to reconnect humans with each other and to the animal kingdom.

Harrington is creative director at LUDIKA, where she designs collaborative art and game experiences that connect, educate and inspire action. She combines 15 years in business operations, project management and event production with passion-based proficiencies in personal development, creativity and group facilitation to do what she loves – collaborate with global change-makers to address social challenges in a playful yet purposeful way.

* Pietronigro will address “The Expansion of the Arts, Humanities and Culture in Space Exploration,” providing a general overview of some of the groups, individuals and institutions involved in expanding the presence of the arts, humanities and culture within the context of human space exploration. He also will advocate for changing the acronym from STEM education to STEAM education (science, technology, engineering, arts, music and mathematics).

Pietronigro considers himself an interdisciplinary artist. He has flown twice under reduced gravity conditions, in 1998 and 2006, when he created multiple works using the media of painting, drawing and dance. He is director of the Zero Gravity Arts Consortium whose current project is titled “Space Wishes.”

* Buelteman will discuss “Energetic Photogrammetry: A History of Photographic Technology.” Buelteman’s journey as a photographic artist began in 1973; he’s worked in black-and-white landscape photography, ran a successful commercial studio in San Francisco’s south-of-Market area, and now, using high-energy electrical discharges and fiber-optically delivered light, makes what he calls “energetic photograms.”

His art has received accolades from institutions as diverse as the U.S. Congress, the Commonwealth Club of California, Committee for Green Foothills and the Natural Resources Defense Council. His art can be found in public and private collections worldwide, including the Yale University Art Museum, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Bank of America, Adobe Systems, Stanford University, Xerox and Nikon.

* Edgar will talk about “Animating the Memory Theatre,” drawing on his work with computers and memory theaters as well as his current work with his “simultaneous opposites” engine.

He grew up in Cocoa Beach, Florida, during the birth of the NASA space program and is a senior instructional designer at Stanford University. He holds a master of fine arts degree from Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts.
