Thom Warmerdam from Philips Applied Technologies will give a presentation of the artificial eye that he is developing and will shed a light on how the brain constructs an image. Amsterdam-based researcher, artist and teacher Willem van Weelden will take a philosophical approach to the notion of how we culturally construct our sensorial impressions of the world. And designer Christien Meindertsma will preview her upcoming project Makers & Spectators, a looking-laboratory set up at MU in Eindhoven from May 1 to June 14, 2009.
After the presentations, BALTAN also invites you to raise a glass with us to celebrate the opening of Telcosystems' installation 12_Series that same evening at Woodstreet Galleries in Pittsburgh, USA. 12_Series is a generative multichannel computer installation by Telcosystems that has been developed under the umbrella of BALTAN’s Poème Numérique research programme.
