MetaMatter #11: Light Shaping

  • Doors: 20:00
  • Start time: 20:30
  • Entrance Free

In our session we will explore expressive ways that light can be sculptured through convergence of light polarization and birefringent media using vintage liquid crystal technology. The presentation and workshop is based on Cere Davis' large scale project, Liquid Loom, an optokinetic interactive exhibit which bridges between digital art and material culture.

Our guest Cere Davis is a science artist and kinetic sculptor from the USA based in Berkeley, California. Her works are analog experiments in emergent dynamics which bridge new forms of media/interactive art and kinetic sculpture. As a part of her work she collaborates with scientists and artists to inspire scientific curiosity and participatory learning through interactive art and critical making. She is the artistic director at Counter Culture Labs, Artist in Residence in Chabot Space & Science Center, and member of the Thingamajigs performance group. She produces, collaborates and participates in projects ranging from dance performance to science fairs and art exhibits. Her works have shown in galleries, science festivals, conferences and public outreach events internationally.
