Infinity Structures: Paradoxical Spaces Opening Ceremony: 5–7 p.m.
LASER @ UCLA: 7–9 p.m.

The UCLA Art | Sci Center presents Robert Gero's exhibition: Infinity Structures: Paradoxical Spaces. Gero's research, grounded in art, mathematics, and philosophy, has led him to speculate on the existence of certain unique structures, infinity structures, in which there is a stable exterior and an infinitely expanding interior. In this project he uses a combination of 3-D modeling and printing, CNC milling, as well as projection mapping to create an installation of these paradoxical structures.

The opening reception will take place on Thursday, 21 May, 5–7 p.m., at the UCLA Art | Sci Gallery, and will be followed by LASER: UCLA, 7–9 p.m., with speakers including Tamira Elul (neurobiologist), Frida Cano (curator), Caitlin Foley & Misha Rabinovich (interdisciplinary artists), Paul Rosero (interdisciplinary artist), and the exhibiting artist Robert Gero.

2 June 2015
World Trade Center Zaragoza (WTCZ), Spain

We are pleased to invite you to Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks, the 6th Leonardo satellite symposium at NetSci2015, taking place at the World Trade Center Zaragoza (WTCZ) in Spain, on Tuesday, 2 June 2015. The 2015 symposium will follow our established recipe, leveraging interaction between those areas by means of keynotes, a number of contributions, and a high-profile panel discussion. In our call, we are looking for a diversity of research contributions revolving around networks in culture, networks in art, networks in the humanities, art about networks and research in network visualization. As in previous years, selected papers will be published in print, both in a Special Section of Leonardo and in a dedicated Leonardo eBook. Deadline to submit: 29 March 2015. Find out more.
