ArtsFusion lecture will explore the creative process as a computational tool
Imagine if a researcher could process complex sets of data in the same way a composer creates and performs a piece of music. JoAnn Kuchera-Morin, director of the Center for Research in Electronic Art Technology (CREATE) at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and her team of researchers are making this a reality. Kuchera-Morin, who is also director of the AlloSphere Research Facility, will discuss the computational framework her team is developing. Her talk, "Composing in N-Dimensions: Using the Creative Process as a Computational Framework for Unfolding Complex Systems," will detail the work that would enable the transformation of complex quantum information and multidimensional scientific and mathematical data in the same way an artist would unfold a work of art or a designer would draft a system. This would allow researchers to generate, control, and transform complex information using all senses intuitively, as if second nature. The event is part of the ArtsFusion lecture series, which is presented by the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology. Kuchera-Morin's talk is co-presented by Virginia Tech's Center for Human-Computer Interaction.
