Isabelle Smeets, Dutch Artist and member of BIOMODD (NYC4).
She will talk about her involvement with BIOMODD, a multifaceted socially engaged art installation that finds meaningful relationships between biology, computers and people. On the most basic level, Biomodd creates symbiotic relationships between plants and computers, and ignites conversations among the community around them. Another project she will discuss is a conceptual architectural project called "A Watchtower of Nothingness."
The event is co-sponsored by the Art, Biology and Computer Science Departments and the Environmental Studies Program.
