CHAIRS: Stephen Nowlin and Robert Crouch
JULIA CHRISTENSEN AND TOM HALL
Sit in on a conversation between Fulcrum Arts’ AxS Incubator Resident Julia Christensen and programmer Tom Hall, moderated by artist, researcher, and educator Laetitia Sonami. These three artists––united in their investigations into sonic translation––will discuss what it means to engage the physical world in electronic music and art, with particular attention to Christensen’s Tree of Life project.
This event will be held online through Zoom, free and open to all, regardless of location. Attendance is limited to 80. There will be a brief Q&A following the discussion.
This program is organized by Fulcrum Arts in partnership with the Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery at Art Center as part of the LASER (Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous) Talks series. LASER Talks is an international program of evening gatherings that bring artists and scientists together for informal presentations and conversations, founded by Leonardo, a nonprofit organization that serves the global network of distinguished scholars, artists, scientists, researchers and thinkers, which focus on interdisciplinary work, creative output and innovation.
