The Science Fair

Eric and I will be installing our collaborative piece Determining the Speed of Light--along with our delightful and darling Fizeau apparatus--in this upcoming show at Flux Factory in New York! I hope you'll come by. I will be present for all four days of the exhibition June 5, 6, 12, 13, and my collaborator Eric Corwin will be with me every day except the 5th. We would love to see you there. My friend Jay Henderson, co-founder of the awesome HKJB curatorial project, will be in the show too. Yay!

Flux Factory and The Metric System are proud to present Science Fair, an exhibition of works by artist-scientists and scientist-artists!

Inspired by grade-school education fairs, Science Fair is a collaborative effort that examines science-based projects and concepts through the lens of art. Artists will create their own presentation booths and interactive experiments to be on display at the Fair. The exhibition explores the potential for science as a breeding ground for art: a way to inform and inspire art as a springboard for creative thought.

The Fair will showcase over two dozen projects including an artist-run weather station, robots that draw, urban meteorites, a cabinet of curiosities, and electro-magnetic field mapping.

Participating artists: Robin Brehm, Daupo, Lisa Glauer & Kaethe Wenzel, Fred Forest, Samwell Freeman, Hope Ginsburg, Kate Hartman, Jay Henderson, Jaime Iglehart, Scott Kildall, Rafael Hidalgo Múgica, Julia Oldham, James Rouvelle & Lili Maya, Daniel Schludi, SP Weather Station, Chad Stayrook, Studio AND, Flint Weisser, Elizabeth Whalley, Jing Yu

The Metric System is a New York-based collective that encourages cross-disciplinary collaborations between artists, thinkers, scientists, and political activists.

The Science Fair is made possible in part through generous support from the NYC Dept. of Cultural Affairs, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the Carnegie Corporation.
