Faces of Columbus

Raheleh Bagheri

Reception May 5 6pm Talk 7pm


Dr. Mark Changizi

Technology and the arts are often described quite differently. Technology is precise, highly engineered, rigorous, and the domain of the scientifically-minded nerd. The arts are built from loose sweeps, messy intuitions, emotions, and is the realm of deep spirits. In a challenge to these stereotypes, Dr. Changizi draws from his research in cognitive science and the origins of art to explain how it is that the arts amount to technology – the most important technology humankind has yet to discover.
