Engineering, science, and art are often seen as having common ground. This is fed by a romantic view of Leonardo da Vinci, the genius who brought these disciplines together in his mind, life, and practice, and by an enthusiastic view of computer technology that continuously provides new scenarios and tools, which are used in all three fields.

This lecture does not go along with putting art, science, and technology into one bag and shaking it before deep-frying the mixture. A perspective on the differences in motivations and goals may open up a respectful view of the other fields and potential collaborations.

The talk begins at 6 p.m. in the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) Theater. Admission is free.
