ART - SCI - PHI: INTERSECTION AND INQUIRY Hampshire College Alumni Weekend Workshop Sp 2015

Art-Sci-Phi presents: proposal for Hampshire College's 45th - June 2015

ART - SCI - PHI: INTERSECTION AND INQUIRY proposal
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Naming art, science and philosophy, we invoke constellations of endless association. How we orient, navigate and travel these spectral trails in our work and lives takes on increasing importance - both daunting and exhilerating - as innovation is increasingly pursued at the intersection of disciplines.

  • How do we, and how should we, make sense of discrete nodes and odd hunches against the backdrop of vast informations and the Babel of different disciplines, their modes and their lexicons?

  • How are we to discern elements, or patterns, of innovative, generative novelty on the one hand, and give order to the unfamiliar on the other – especially when so much of our cognitive adaptation is based on recognizeability?

Living at the front end of big data and unparalled connectivity, the need to craft illuminating metaphors and agile models is felt across domains. This workshop is an extension of the NYC Art-Sci-Phi Dinner Series hosted by HC alums, Tracy Ann Essoglou and Daniel Kohn, and our ongoing collaborations with other HC entities, including CBD.

We invite anyone and everyone who is interested in discussing these intersections and their applicability in design thinking, computational modeling, data collection, artistic, activisitic, scientific and/or philosophical inquiry and practice. Our goal is to establish an ongoing community of students, alums, faculty and friends with an eye towards extending each other's interests, impact, and reach, and those of Hampshire as a unique institution of extreme learning.

ART - SCI - PHI: INTERSECTION AND INQUIRY WORKSHOP
Saturday, June 6 11:30 - 12:45

How do the intersections of art, science and philosophy, allow us to explore and innovate in an interdisciplinary way? This workshop will build on conversations started at the New York City Art-Sci-Phi Dinner Series and ongoing collaborations with the Culture, Brain, and Development program to explore these intersections and their applicability in design thinking, computational modeling, data collection, artistic, activisitic, scientific and/or philosophical inquiry and practice. The goal is to establish an ongoing community of students, alums, faculty and friends with an eye towards extending each other's interests, impact, and reach, and those of Hampshire as a unique institution of learning.
