Art Meets Science Lecture: A Different Physics: The Poetics of Discovery

Nov 07, 2019 - 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm
Location

SLAC, Kavli Auditorium

Speaker
Lisa Rosenberg

How do poetic and scientific exploration create access and insight between domains? Can art created within the worlds of science and technology broaden expectations and possibilities for engagement? Formally trained in physics and poetry, Lisa Rosenberg looks at processes of inquiry and making, with a lens of commonality and shared territory in sciences and arts. Steeped in both domains since childhood, she will discuss how dual immersion fuels her work, through tools, materials, methodologies and ways of seeing. Lisa's talk will look at questions in areas such as systems, creative pathways, symbolic language, and social discourse. She'll read selections from her recent title, A Different Physics, and offer reflections on gifts and pitfalls of working in fields often perceived as disparate or divided. Lisa will be in conversation with Roger Blandford of the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology.
