Reception to follow
Creating Colliders for High-Energy Ideas
Two media artists and longtime friends, Ben Rubin and David Small will discuss 20 years of multidisciplinary pursuits spanning history, science, religion, data, and technology. The questions they ask through their work and the methodologies they employ have much in common with science, and they will discuss the interplay between the practices of science, art, culture, and design.
