Seattle Arts & Technology Meetup

Open Floor: 4-Minute Talks

We've partnered with Seattle Startup Week and Kremwerk to organize a Seattle Arts & Technology meetup and give YOU the stage (literally, a stage) to talk about whatever you want, within the realm of art and tech, for a max of four minutes.

Ideas: recent projects you've been working on, ideas, manifestos, speeches, how your organization/business is creatively using tech, or perhaps simply introduce yourself and tell us about what type of people you are interesting in meeting or collaborating with through this group.

6:30 - 6:45 // Arrive at venue and sign up for a slot, send images
6:45 - 8:15 // Talks
8:15 - 9 // Socialize 

Each presenter may bring one image to share during their talk. Transfer the file to us from your phone/laptop/etc when you arrive and sign up.

Happy hour drinks will be on special at the bar. 

If you want to stay for the show at 9PM, please make a donation toward the ticket price ($12) at the door when you arrive.

Check out the Seattle Startup Week events, running all week long.

Thanks to Aashish and Bobby from Coldbrew Collective for hooking up the venue,

Living Systems, Oysters and Robots

Living Systems, Oysters and Robots

  • Institute for Systems Biology

Join us on July 15th for our next Seattle Arts & Technology Meetup: LIVING SYSTEMS, OYSTERS AND ROBOTS.

We’ll be thinking about various ideas of “living systems”, considering the possibilities of natural and artificial systems as a source of artistic material. Three artists will give short presentations of their work, which spans systems art, living installation, wearable robotics, performance art and sound sculpture. 

How does a system become an artistic material? What degrees of control over biological systems does technology offer? How do natural and artificial systems shape the capacity for interactivity?

6:30 - 7 PM: Drinks 
7 - 8 PM: Artist talks 
8 - 8:30 PM: Drinks, social

She also holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 2002. In her most recent projects, she has been exploring the combination of patterns, fabrication technologies and plant tissue culturing to make living installations.

Thomas Deuel 

Thomas is a neuroscientist, sound artist, and neurologist who combines his interests and skills in understanding brain physiology with those of music composition and sound art. He received an M.D. and a Ph.D. in Neurobiology from Harvard University, where his doctoral dissertation focused on genetics and neurophysiology of cortical development. His post-doctoral research focused on complex sound and music processing in the human cortex. He also brings several years of practice as a sound artist, making site-specific sound installations, interactive music devices, and sound sculptures. His current work involves development of a brain-music interface, using thought control of the subject to create music compositions without movement.  He is currently on medical staff at Swedish Hospital as a practicing neurologist, and an epilepsy and EEG specialist.
