The Council on Science and Technology (CST) is pleased to announce its inaugural Living at the Intersection Symposium to be held April 12-13, 2018 on the Princeton University campus. The 2018 Symposium focuses on the intersection of Engineering and the Arts and is co-hosted by Princeton’s School of Engineering and Applied Science and by Princeton’s Lewis Center for the Arts.
At 6 pm in the Murphy Dance Studio at the Lewis Center for the Arts, there will be a performance of There Might Be Others, a dance + music + engineering collaboration. There Might Be Others examines the role of presence, performer agency, and collective decision-making to create emergent composition. The performance will feature New York dancers, Princeton alumni dancers, So Percussion and guests.
The Symposium will take place on Friday April 13, 2018 at the Friend Center for Engineering Education at the corner of William Street and Olden Street on the Princeton University campus. It will be begin with a keynote lecture by American sculptor and fiber artist Janet Echelman, followed by four panel sessions that will engage participants in an exploration of “living at the intersection” of engineering and the arts with thought leaders, researchers, artists, faculty, students, and professionals who create at or near this intersection.
