Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Event Image Exhibition: Be Here Now
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Exhibition: Janelle Iglesias
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

This exhibition is generously supported by a Roser Visiting Artist Endowment, an Arts Mini Grant funded by the College of Arts and Sciences, CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Laura Grigori, INRIA Paris - Rocquencourt Alpines group, joint with Laboratoire J.L. Lions, UPMC

An overview of fast and robust communication-avoiding algorithms

In this talk I will discuss one of the main challenges in high performance computing: the increased cost of communication with respect to computation, where communication refers to data transferred either between processors or between different levels of memory hierarchy, including possibly NVMs (non-volatile memories).  I will overview novel communication-avoiding numerical methods and algorithms that reduce the communication to a minimum for operations that are at the heart of many calculations, in particular numerical linear algebra algorithms.  Those algorithms range from iterative methods (as used in numerical simulations) to low-rank matrix approximations for data analytics (based on LU/QR factorizations with column tournament pivoting).  I will also discuss the algorithm/architecture matching of those algorithms

Q&A to Follow

The Department of Critical Media Practices presents a series of sound workshops and film screenings with media artists Ernst Karel and Helen Mirra on Feb. 12 and 13 on the CU Boulder campus. Working in both sound installation and film in association with Harvard University’s Sensory Ethnography Lab, Karel and Mirra explore the connections between sound, site and performance through the prism of collaborative practice. The events’ co-sponsors are the Department of Critical Media Practices and the Department of Anthropology, with the assistance of a GCAH grant from CU's Center for the Humanities and the Arts.

Ernst Karel is a nonfiction experimental sound artist who creates works for multichannel installation and performance. His recent projects are edited and composed using unprocessed location recordings. In performance he sometimes combines these with analog electronics to create pieces that move between the abstract and the documentary. Karel's recent work includes soundtracks for the nonfiction films The Iron Ministry, Manakamana, and Leviathan, which were all produced in the Sensory Ethnography Lab at Harvard University, where Karel teaches sonic ethnography as a Lecturer in Anthropology.

Helen Mirra’s solo exhibitions include those at the Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, the Berkeley Art Museum, Kunst-Werke Berlin, and Haus Konstruktiv Zurich, and she participated in the 50th Venice Biennial, the 30th Sao Paulo Biennial, and the 2015 Havana Biennale. Recent music releases are the CD Maps of Parallels 41 N and 49 N with Ernst Karel (Shhpuma, 2014), and the LP Kwangsi-Quail with Fred Frith (Shhpuma, 2015). She has held teaching positions as Associate Professor in Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University and Senior Lecturer in Visual Art and Cinema and Media Studies at the University of Chicago.

Event Image Beautiful Human Lies

Event Image Spheres of Influence with Anne Akiko Meyers
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Every creation is indebted to the works that precede it. In this concert, we explore influential forebears as we hear music of Tchaikovsky based on his idol, Mozart, and music of Shostakovich with a Haydnesque flair. Missy Mazzoli’s Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres) pays homage to Baroque techniques, and superstar violinist Anne Akiko Meyers offers her take on Mendelssohn’s beloved Violin Concerto—an early Romantic work steeped in Classical period tradition.
The Distance of the Moon
7:30 PM - 8:15 PM

What if the moon were just a jump away?
Sara Corry’s adaptation of Italo Calvino’s science-fiction
story, “The Distance of the Moon,” explores this with an
alluring fusion of music, projection, dance, and spoken word.

Event Image The Distance to the Moon by Italo Calvino
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

An alluring fusion of projection, dance and spoken word, The Distance of the Moon is inspired by the science-fiction story of the same name by Italo Calvino, adapted for performance by CU Theatre and Dance PhD student Sara Corry.

What if the Moon were just a jump away? According to one theory, the Moon formed when a Mars-sized chunk of rock collided with Earth. After the Moon coalesced from the debris, it was much closer to Earth than it is today.

The story, narrated by a character with an impossible-to-pronounce name, Qfwfq, tells of a love triangle amid a strange crew who jump between Earth and Moon. Sometimes they hover in the nether reaches of gravity between the two until the lovers drift apart as the Moon recedes.

2016 Innovative Seed Grant Application Deadline
All Day

Innovative Seed Grant Program

The Offices of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Research are pleased to announce the 2016 Innovative Seed Grant competition (http://www.colorado.edu/vcr/fundingawards/innovative-seed-grant-program) to stimulate new and exciting areas of research and creative work on the CU Boulder campus. Funding up to $1M will be available to provide grants of up to $50,000 including $250K set aside to support work connected to the campus Grand Challenge (http://www.colorado.edu/grandchallenges/).

Announcing the new deadlines for the 2016 Innovative Seed Grant Competition

1)    Grant Submission Deadline: February 14, 2016 at 11:59 PM MST

2)    Grant Panel Reviews: March 2016

3)    Winner Notification: Early April 2016

 

Please see the VCR’s Innovative Seed Grant Program Page at: https://www.colorado.edu/vcr/fundingawards/innovative-seed-grant-program.

 

We are looking for research, scholarship, and creative projects that:

  • Involve new interdisciplinary initiatives that take investigators in creative, and sometimes high-risk, high-reward directions including team development proposals for future large team research projects
  • Have tangible payoffs in terms of future funding, scholarly or artistic impact, or development of new productive collaborations

 

The projects may take a variety of forms but must represent an investment in the future research, scholarly, or artistic vitality of the university and demonstrate promise for expansion of the project goals in the future. The projects can come from any discipline at the university, with those involving interdisciplinary work that will foster collaborative interaction among CU faculty particularly welcome. We would like to stress that proposals are judged in categories designed to allow faculty from all disciplines the opportunity to compete successfully, even if their discipline is not traditionally connected to sponsored research. We especially welcome proposals for work in emerging fields. 

This year, there is a new and unique opportunity for faculty who would like to become part of the campus Grand Challenge supporting Our Space.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

It took a long time for Daoism to establish a systematic and consolidated pantheon, and this process lasted from the Han Dynasty to the Southern Song Dynasty as it is acknowledged. Although the Daoist pantheon is complicated, we can still trace the innovation of it through the Daoist scriptures at different historical periods. From this innovation, we can discover some characteristics of Daoism religion which constitute for the important basis of Chinese traditional beliefs.

Philip Guo on "Interactive Systems for Learning Programming at Scale"


ABSTRACT: Computer programming is now a vital skill, but millions of people around the world struggle to learn it on their own without being able to get help from a human tutor. To address this significant access gap, Guo created Python Tutor (pythontutor.com), a pedagogical code visualization and social learning system. He then generalized Python Tutor's visualization engine into a language-independent platform called Rosetta, which now visualizes code written in seven popular languages: Python, Java, C, C++, Ruby, JavaScript and TypeScript.

So far, over 1.5 million people in over 180 countries have used Rosetta to visualize over 15 million pieces of code, making it by far the most widely-used system of its kind. This unique scale inspires new types of interactive systems for online learning, along with the ability to evaluate those systems on orders of magnitude more subjects than is possible in traditional lab studies.

This talk, Guo will describe the Rosetta visualization platform and two social learning systems built upon it: 1.) Codechella enables multiple people to simultaneously write code together, visually explore its run-time state using multiple cursors, and text chat to perform tutoring and collaborative learning. 2.) Codeopticon enables a single tutor to efficiently monitor dozens of learners as they are coding and then step in to offer proactive assistance. Taken together, these systems help people around the world learn programming even when they do not have access to scarce in-person tutoring resources.
 
BIO: Philip Guo is an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Rochester. His research spans human-computer interaction, online learning, and data science. To enable learning programming at scale, he created Python Tutor (pythontutor.com), a code visualization and social learning platform that has been used by over 1.5 million people in over 180 countries to visualize over 15 million pieces of code. Philip received SB and MEng degrees in EECS from MIT in 2006 and a PhD in Computer Science from Stanford in 2012. His PhD dissertation was one of the first to create productivity tools for data scientists. Before becoming an assistant professor in Fall 2014, he built online learning tools at Google, edX, and MIT CSAIL. Learn more at www.pgbovine.net

Speaker 2 - 4:30-5:30 p.m. 
Charalampos Tsourakakis on "Mining Tools for Large-Scale Networks"

ABSTRACT: Finding large near-cliques in massive networks is a notoriously hard problem of great importance to many applications, including anomaly detection in security, community detection in social networks, and mining the Web graph. How can we exploit idiosyncrasies of real-world networks in order to solve this NP-hard problem efficiently? Can we find dense subgraphs in graph streams with a single pass over the stream? Can we design near real time algorithms  for time-evolving networks? In this talk, Tsourakakis will answer these questions in the affirmative. He will also present state-of-the-art exact and approximation algorithms for extraction of large near-cliques from large-scale networks, the k-clique densest subgraph problem, which run in a few seconds on a typical laptop.  He will present graph mining applications, including anomaly detection in citation networks, planning a successful cocktail party and engineering applications on Tera-scale networks. Tsourakakis  will conclude his talk with some interesting research directions.

BIO: Charalampos Tsourakakis is currently a CRCS Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at Harvard University.

Event Image Holland & Hart Tech Talk
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

In 1947, Denver attorneys Steve Hart and Joe Holland left established local practices to form a new, distinctly client-focused law firm. Over the years, Holland & Hart has grown to be the largest law firm in the Mountain West Region, with over 480 attorneys in 15 offices including Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Washington D.C.
Each Holland & Hart office offers the personal service you expect from a local firm, yet is backed by our nationally recognized lawyers and by today's most advanced computer technology. 
Holland & Hart provides legal counsel to individuals and companies of all sizes, from emerging businesses to large public corporations located throughout the country and internationally. 
Our goal is to develop long-term client relationships, based on close cooperation and solid results. We are committed to providing quality legal services to our clients, while maintaining a dynamic and satisfying work environment, and encouraging the professional and personal growth of individuals in the firm. 
We are committed to the growth and success of the firm by providing full service to our clients and their emerging legal services needs. We consistently hire lawyers with prior experience in other practice settings - senior associates and partners alike - and view them as important and strong contributors to our clients' satisfaction. 
We also consistently hire lawyers who happily make the move from the biggest of national firms - you know, those big-city bi-coastal firms? Denver is big-city enough for us, and apparently for them too. 
In addition to associate level lateral moves, we are always interested in exploring ways to expand our capabilities by bringing in partner-level lawyers, as well. As you'd expect, compensation and benefit packages for partners are unique. They are most often negotiated instead of following a set schedule.

Located in Engineering, ECCR 200.

One of the best post-Soviet comedy and definitely the best comedy about the Russian army.  “The student, Rifle, has managed to seduce his professor's wife, Bomber, an average working guy, has bought a factory and Bullet, the casino lover, is hiding from creditors. They all share a common path and conscription. In the army they teach you that everything must be smart and in order - cockades, straps and all, otherwise you're not fit to call yourself a person, you're a maggot. For a real man, there's no better place than the army.“

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Janet Tsai, Post-Doctoral Research Associate, Engineering Plus

The CU Engineering Center celebrates its quinquagenary (50th birthday) in May 2016. Built at the height of the Space Race and Cold War, its distinctive concrete brutalist exterior was intended to demonstrate the cutting-edge research being performed there. Using the building as an example of a physical structure which has shaped and organized student activities across five decades, we will discuss ways that we can learn from the past and take informed action in light of historical legacies and traditions which may be surreptitiously limiting inclusion and diversity efforts in our disciplines.

Event Image AIA Lecture Series: Saint Peter in Rome: A Historian’s Perspective
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join Dr. Tyler Lansford, author and instructor within the CU Department of Classics as he explains the Petrine tradition in its historical and archaeological context in "St. Peter in Rome: A Historian's Perspective.”

During the early Christian centuries, the tradition that the apostle Peter had ministered and died in Rome formed a leading component of Rome's claim to ecclesiastical primacy within the church universal.  As early as the second century, the Christian community of Rome identified a site where Peter was believed to be buried: progressively monumentalized, the memoria Petri (Tomb of Peter) today lies directly below the high altar of St. Peter's Basilica. 

Event Image Supply-Side Economics with Brian Domitrovic
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The Conservative Thought and Policy Program speaker series presents:

Supply-Side Economics:

The Challenge of Overcoming Slow-Growth in this Millennium

Featuring Brian Domitrovic, CU-Boulder’s Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought & Policy

Wed., Feb. 17, 2016
7:00 p.m.
Benson Earth Sciences Room 180
University of Colorado Boulder

This event is free and open to the public.

Supply-side economics was the policy innovation of a generation ago that put an end to the “stagflation” episode of the 1970s and early 1980s. Its formula of monetary restraint in concert with tax-rate cuts was also crucial to the booms of the 1960s and the Roaring 1920s. In our contemporary environment of economic near-stagnation, the tradition of supply-side economics remains relevant and instructive.

Brian Domitrovic is the leading historian of supply-side economics. His book Econoclasts (2009) chronicled the history of the movement from its origins in academia in the 1950s through its policy triumph in the Ronald Reagan years. He will speak about the useful ways that the tradition of supply-side economics can inform our urgent debate over how to restore economic growth today.

The Oceanic Charney Problem: the role of surface buoyancy gradients on mesocale 
eddies and waves
The effect of a surface buoyancy gradient --- or, equivalently, a surface shear --- on the formation,
vertical structure, and transport properties of mesoscale eddies and waves is studied in an “oceanic”
version of the classical Charney problem. The analysis is carried out in the context of a simple model
flow that permits a systematic study of the competing effects of surface buoyancy, planetary vorticity,
and baroclinic shear in terms of two nondimensional parameters that emerge naturally from the problem:
the Charney-Green number relating the strength of the planetary potential vorticity gradient to
the surface buoyancy gradient, and the Phillips supercriticality quantifying the stability of the mean shear
profile. It is shown that the presence of a surface buoyancy gradient implies faster Rossby wave propagation
and subtly modifies the classical criteria for Charney and Phillips-type instability. This has important
consequences for the ensuing nonlinear equilibrated flow, resulting in an energized submesoscale
energy spectrum. In addition, the surface buoyancy gradient rapidly generates buoyancy variance close
to the surface, strongly modifying the nature of the turbulent cascades and the vertical structure of
the eddies. Idealized quasigeostrophic simulations show a transition from surface quasigeostrophic
turbulence near the surface to classical geostrophic turbulence in the interior.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Event Image Exhibition: Be Here Now
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

EXPLORING DIGITAL HUMANITIES: A Lecture Series on Research and Pedagogy

 

Associate Professor, Ian Matthew Miller

St. John’s University

 

“Text Modeling the Emperor’s Archives: Exploring Digital Approaches to Chinese History”

 

Center for British and Irish Studies, Norlin Library 5th floor

Monday Feb 22, 5-6:30 p.m.

 

Premodern China offers an almost unparalleled body of texts ripe for digital  analysis: hundreds of years of court and private records compiled by an infamously  large and highly literate bureaucracy, many of which have since been digitized. Yet  premodern Chinese texts pose their own set of issues – both legal and linguistic. In  this talk, Miller will detail some of the issues encountered in text modeling two  different corpora: a set of 300 thousand entries in the records of the imperial court;  and a set of more than 600 genealogical essays in private collections. Miller will  explore how text modeling allows historians to capture and analyze topics across  very large numbers of texts, but also raises questions about the nature of the data  captured through these automated models.

 

About Dr. Miller:


Ian Matthew Miller is a historian of pre-modern China. His work focuses on long-term social, intellectual, and environmental change, often through the application  of digital methods. Trained at Harvard University, he has recently joined the faculty  at St. John’s University, where he is assistant professor in the Department of History.  Professor Miller’s interests include banditry and unrest, genealogy, tax policy, and  food history. His current project focuses on land ethics and wood rights in South  China.

Nonlinear Waves Seminar - Willy Hereman
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Willy Hereman, Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Colorado School of Mines

Symbolic Computation of Scaling Invariant Lax Pairs in Operator Form for Completely Integrable Systems

Based on scaling symmetry properties, a direct method to compute Lax pairs in operator form for completely integrable systems will be presented.

By splitting the determining equations for the Lax pair into kinematic and dynamical constraints, the problem can eventually be reduced to solving nonlinear algebraic equations.

The method will be illustrated with well-known examples from soliton theory and applied to a three parameter class of fifth-order KdV-like evolution equations.

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Programming is Hard & Boring: Exploring Cognitive and Affective Challenges in Computer Science Education Research

ABSTRACT: Computational thinking has been identified as an essential 21st century skill relevant not only to computer scientists. Unfortunately, many computer users, particularly children, consider programming to be hard and boring. There are two fundamental barriers to making programming more appealing: cognitive challenges to overcoming the “hard” part, and affective challenges to overcoming the “boring” part. Over the last 20 years, Repenning's team has systematically explored these cognitive and affective challenges, and with AgentSheets/AgentCubes, they have created Computational Thinking Tools to transform “hard and boring” into “accessible and exciting” by pioneering concepts such as drag and drop programming. The presentation will discuss computational thinking, demonstrate computational thinking tools, and outline the Scalable Game Design curriculum used in the USA, Mexico and Switzerland. Additionally, the presentation will discuss the notion of Cyberlearning as means to evaluate and support computer science activities through the analysis of real time design information. In 2013, as part of the Hour of Code, the AgentCubes 3D Game design activity was used by nearly a quarter million participants in just one week. New kinds of evaluation instruments, relevant to computer science education research, emerge from these large data collections.

BIO: Alexander Repenning is the Hasler Professor and Chair of Computer Science Education at the PH FHNW (School of Teacher Education at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland), a computer science professor at the University of Colorado, and a founder of AgentSheets Inc. He is directing the Scalable Game Design Initiative at the University of Colorado. Repenning’s research interests include education, end-user programmable agents, and artificial intelligence. He has worked in research and development at Asea Brown Boveri, Xerox PARC, Apple Computer and Hewlett Packard. Repenning is the creator of the AgentSheets/AgentCubes simulation and game computational thinking tools. He has offered game design workshops in the USA, Mexico, South America, Europe and Japan. His work has received numerous awards including the Gold Medal from the mayor of Paris for “most innovative application in education of the World Wide Web,” as well as “best of the best innovators” by ACM and has been featured in WIRED Magazine. Repenning has been a Telluride Tech Festival honoree for contributions to computer science. Repenning is an advisor to the National Academy of Sciences, the European Commission, the National Science Foundation, The Japanese Ministry of Education and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

Close Looking: details from our collection

An exhibition curated by the CU Art Museum and presented as part of BMoCA at Macky
On view January 11 - February 28, 2016

What makes a museum? For us at the CU Art Museum an important pillar is our collection of over 8,000 objects spanning human history. Each photograph in this exhibition is a highly magnified detail of an object in our collection; each one selected by a different member of our museum staff. These objects inspire us—from small ancient coins to large contemporary paintings—and the personal connections we make with them inform how we look at the collection as a whole.

This project illustrates our desire to promote new ways of looking at our collection. Interested in seeing more? Visit the museum, located at the Visual Arts Complex, to make your own personal connections. We’re opening three new exhibitions featuring objects from our collection on February 12, 2016.

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Phononics: manipulating phonons with electronic analog

The discovery of electronic transistor has changed our daily life in many aspects. However, a similar device to manipulate phonons – the main heat carriers in semiconductor and dielectric materials- has not yet available.

About a decade ago, we proposed a thermal diode model to rectify heat flux due to phonons in nanoscale [1]. A great progress has been achieved in this rapid developing field, including the experimental realization of solid-state thermal rectifier[2], thermal transistor model [3], and a new emerging field – Phononics [4].

In this talk, I will give an overview of past years’ development in this direction. Emphasis will be given on the fundamental principle of thermal diode, and the extension of thermal diode concept to control other energy forms including elastic energy, acoustic waves, heat carried by electrons, photons and magnons etc.

I will also present the underlying physical mechanism for negative differential thermal resistance  - an essential physical principle of building thermal transistor. The thermal transistor function like switch and amplifier will be demonstrated.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Content Conference: Innovation and Incentives in the Creative Arts
1:00 PM - 6:30 PM

"Innovation" is often hailed as the north star in the law and technology and intellectual property communities. In patent law, for example, the focus is often on how certain types of legal protections can encourage inventors and investors. As highlighted by the copyright limit term debate, copyright law must also grapple with the core question of which incentives are necessary to motivate creative innovation; that is, who should make money from artistic creation, when, how, and for how long. But copyright law also explicitly introduces other, non-economic considerations into the mix, including protecting the rights of users (including other artists) in some cases, and that of encouraging investors in others. Taking a step back from current copyright controversies, this conference will examine the question of innovation and incentives in the creative arts through three lenses: (1) the perspective of the artists; (2) the perspective of the creative industries; and (3) the academic literature on how the various incentives work in practice.

CompSci Today: Jin (Princeton)
3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Dynamic Control of Software-Defined Networks

ABSTRACT: Computer networks run many network services  (e.g., routing, monitoring, load balancing) to support applications from search engines to big data analytics. These network services have to continuously update network configurations to alleviate congestion, to detect and block cyber-attacks, to perform planned maintenance, etc. Network updates are painful because network administrators unfortunately have to balance the tradeoff between the disruption caused by the problem (e.g., congestion and cyber-attacks), and the disruption introduced in fixing the problem. In this talk, Jin will present his research on designing and building new network control systems to efficiently handle network updates for multiple network services. First, he will present CoVisor, a new network hypervisor that can host multiple network services and efficiently compile their configuration changes to a single update. Then, he will describe Dionysus, a new network update scheduler that can quickly and consistently apply the network update to a distributed collection of switches. He has built prototype systems for CoVisor and Dionysus, and part of CoVisor has been integrated into ONOS, a popular open-source control platform for software-defined networks developed by ON.LAB.

BIO: Xin Jin is a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Princeton University, advised by Professor Jennifer Rexford. He has a broad research interest in networked systems, cloud computing and computer networking. His PhD study focuses on Software-Defined Networking (SDN). He has published several research papers in this area in premier venues, including SIGCOMM, NSDI and CoNEXT. He has interned and collaborated with leading research institutes and cutting-edge startups like Microsoft Research and Rockley Photonics. He received his BS degree in computer science and BA degree in economics from Peking University in 2011, and his MA degree in computer science from Princeton University in 2013. He has received many awards and honors, including the Siebel Scholar (2016), a Princeton Charlotte Elizabeth Procter Fellowship (2015), and a Princeton Graduate Fellowship (2011).

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Things I Still Wish I Knew How to Do after 20 Years of Teaching at CU
Timothy Oakes, Professor, Geography

In this session I will reflect on two decades of teaching at CU. Those years have taught me a few things about being a good teacher, some of which I’ve learned to do, but many of which I’m still trying to do better! (And those things have nothing to do with technology.)

 

Event Image Exhibition: Be Here Now
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Be Here Now: Conversations Between Objects
February 12–March 19, 2016

Be Here Now is the second exhibition in a series subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provokes a dialogue between artworks that span different time periods and geographic locations.

Setting the stage for this exhibition of recent acquisitions are the photographs of Lou Stoumen (1917–92), which consider the fragile nature of the human body expressed through the objects we create and their inevitable deterioration over time. These black-and-white images document human intimacies, labor, leisure and loss from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Exhibition: Janelle Iglesias
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.
