RadLab: Roses Are Red, Violets Aren't Blue
Apr 14, 2021, 8:00 pm

A broad, multidisciplinary dive into talking about color, inspired by thinking about the intersections between theater lighting design and computer graphics. We will talk about how humans perceive color, additive vs. subtractive color mixing, and the tradeoffs that come with representing colors digitally. Among other things, we will look at the fundamental difference between violet and purple, how red and brown M&Ms look the same under a blue light, and why some colors are impossible to simulate on your computer screen.

RadLab: Electronic Literature and Its Failures
Apr 21, 2021, 8:00 pm

With the release of the World Wide Web in the 1990s, electronic literature experienced its golden age, and some literary critics predicted the death of print literature. Instead, electronic literature quickly became obsolete. Focusing on the text of Patchwork Girl, which was distributed three different times in three different media (floppy disk, CD-ROM, and flash drive), Cynthia Vu will examine the ways in which electronic literature succeeds and fails.
