On Friday, April 24, 2009 BALTAN Laboratories invites you to attend the second in the BALTAN goes NATLAB series of presentations at the former Philips NatLab in Eindhoven. Curated and moderated by artist Geert Mul, the focus of this session will be on the philosophy of perception and how artificial intelligence and robotics can lead to a deeper understanding of human behaviour itself.

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.
