Professor Fox Harrell will speak about how his creative practices push the expressive potential of technologies to simulate social and cognitive phenomena, while intrinsically considering their social and cultural impacts — toward this end he'll describe outcomes of the MIT Center for Advanced Virtuality and Imagination, Computation, and Expression Laboratory.
What is Synchrony?
Synchrony is about being creative with computers, and seeing how computers can produce amazing sorts of animation, graphics, music, and other experiences. At the end we have COMPOS (competitions) that are voted on by those who are there at the party. Some people may work on their entries for these compos for months beforehand; some, just on the train ride up. People are welcome to enter remotely, even if they are unable to attend.
