During her visit to OSU, Candace Thompson will also lead an urban foraging workshop for the students of the Art, Science, and Environment course. Contact Amy at email@example.com if you’d like to join us.
Jacklyn Brickman, MFA student in Art & Technology, was awarded a Tech Hub grant to produce an art installation that connects the human body to black walnut trees. She discusses her finished work Spellbreaker and her thoughts on the role that technology can play in helping us understand living systems.
Rose Stark, MFA student graduating Spring 2019 presents her installation work and describes how her experiences as an animator influenced the way she approached building these sculptures for her exhibition, Transluminal.
Professors Iris Meier and Amy Youngs will co-teach an Art Science course. Designed to be interdisciplinary between art and science, we welcome graduate students and advanced undergraduate students from the sciences and the arts. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
The Center for Ethics and Human Values has teamed up with the Department of Art to create an art contest related to the theme of “Technology”. Artworks of all media are eligible. Graduate and Undergraduate students apply by filling out the online form and by exhibiting their artwork in the Fall and/or Spring open house exhibitions in the Department of Art. Prizes will be awarded at both times and the award-winning artworks will be exhibited at the STEAM Factory, which will include artworks juried from the larger Columbus community.
Overclocked computers have been configured to run at faster speeds than intended. Overclocking can lead to instability in the system and unpredictable behavior. Overclocking is an act of pushing computers for more speed, while it is also a metaphor for high tech low brow techniques of hacking to wrest control from computer engineers. Overclocking can reference the dream of a higher-performance computer as well as the nightmare of runaway technological growth at the expense of biological and ecological systems. Now fueled by new forms of artificial intelligences that allow machines to upgrade themselves, who might be holding the joystick?
This semester, students in the Art & Technology courses – ranging from animation, digital imaging, moving image art, and 3D modeling, to robotics – have created individual and group artworks related to this theme and they will be presenting them in this juried exhibition.
Yoldas is an infradisciplinary designer/artist/researcher.

She is a is a Turkish-American architect, artist and an assistant professor at University of California, San Diego.
Thursday April 19th, at 2:30pm
Room 362 Hopkins Hall
Sponsored by the Student Art and Tech Club, Science and Technology Studies: a Humanities and Arts Discovery Theme and The Graduate Student Art Club.
A panel and discussion on current synergistic creative research and teaching partnerships between artists and scientists stimulating innovation, knowledge production and critical engagement. With a focus on environmentalism, the panelists will present examples of research shaped by the disciplines of art and science. Learn about projects that are created by scientists working with artists, by artists who teach and work with scientists, and by an artist who is also a scientist. What happens when there is friction? Who benefits from these collaborations? Is the career risk worth it? Join the moderated discussion at the end.
While at Ohio State, Brandon Ballengée will participate in several events:
Tuesday, April 3
Marine Species Eco-Action and Vertebrate Specimen Preservation Workshop Globally marine fisheries are suffering from species decline with many populations verging on collapse. Choosing locally sourced sustainable seafood is a key to marine conservation, yet few of us know which species are ecologically safe to eat. Join artist/ biologist Brandon Ballengée on a seafood market survey of fishes, mollusks, arthropods and other species. Ballengée will discuss encountered species natural history, ecological status and collectively we will choose specimens for a dissection and preservation workshop following the tour. When back at the lab participants will learn how to dissect and preserve specimens at a Natural History Museum standard.
12:00 pm – meet at The Fish Guys in the North Market, 59 Spruce St, Columbus, OH 43215
2:30 pm – we will meet back at the Museum of Biological Diversity for the dissection and preservation part of the workshop
Bring a sketchbook and some money to purchase a fresh specimen at the market.
