High Speed Camera Workshop
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM

All camera and post-production equipment will be provided. Free to attend.

About the Workshop:
The College of Media, Communication and Information and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) are sponsoring a high speed camera workshop for students interested in learning the basics of high speed camera photography and post-production workflow. With application potential in the areas of art, research, filmmaking, military, engineering, and broadcasting -- come learn how this technique can benefit your area of study. The workshop will be led by Josh Krohn, an award winning filmmaker and Imaging Specialist from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

About Josh:
Upon completing a Masters in Television, Film, and New Media, Josh Krohn specialized in high-speed imaging in Los Angeles. His work has appeared on the National Geographic Channel, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Discovery Channel, as well as dozens of music videos and commercials. Josh also works full-time at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory as an Imaging Specialist testing spacecraft technology.

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

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

Hills and their evolution: a tale of parabolas, exponentials, and hyperbolas

Landscapes consist almost entirely of hills. With few exceptions, hills are convex up, although their curvature and roughness vary significantly.  I will start from basic conservation principles to demonstrate why hilltops are convex up, and indeed are parabolas in the steady case.  This simple framework motivates the search for rules for both release of rock into the mobile layer we often call soil, and the downslope transport within the mobile layer. We seek rules that allow exploration of how climate, tectonics, and rock type enter the problem.

I will briefly introduce how we constrain timing in landscapes, using cosmogenic radionuclides to document long-term erosion rates.  That such erosion rates are very small -- 20-30 m/Myr in our Front Range -- implies that rock spends a few million years exposed to weathering processes in the subsurface before being released into the soil, and 20-30 thousand years within the soil.  As these timescales span significant glacial to interglacial swings in climate requires that we develop rules that can capture how the relevant processes are modulated by climate.  I illustrate with a transport rule for frost creep, and discuss why particles travel trajectories that are nested hyperbolas. 

The least understood component of the hilltop problem is what governs the release of rock into the soil.  As one example, I will discuss a model in which chemical weathering “damage” accumulates in the rock as it is exhumed.  We hypothesize that a rock may be released into the soil when sufficient damage of the rock has accumulated. Here the hydrology of the hill matters, as the ability of water to weather minerals in the rock depends upon the concentration of reactants in the water, which in turn depends upon the reaction history experienced by a parcel of water. I will present models of the chemical evolution of water along trajectories that are vertical in the unsaturated zone, and become hyperbolic beneath the water table, in the saturated zone, as water drains toward the channels that bound the hill.

I will finish by advertising the frontier of blocky, rocky hillslopes, in which addressing the material as a continuum breaks down. Only when we treat individual blocks and their various interactions with both soil and underlying rock can we model evolution of the hogbacks and flatirons that grace our own backyard.

Event Image Peter and the Starcatcher
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

By Rick Elice
Directed by Cecilia Pang

Ever wondered what Peter Pan’s childhood was like before Wendy met him in Neverland? Rick Elice’s play, based on a best-selling 2006 novel, travels back to Peter’s early adventures in an orphanage, aboard a weather-beaten ship holding precious cargo, and on a magical remote island. “Peter and the Starcatcher” takes the theatergoers to golden grottoes, deep jungles and active volcanoes on adventures just as exciting as those in the classic story we all know and love.
