A special event on Wednesday, February 23, will celebrate a unique art installation on view at the Central Reading Room in the Frank Melville Library.
The exhibition, “STEM + Arts = STEAM,” powerfully represents the inherent synergy between the natural sciences and visual arts. The work was co-developed by the interdisciplinary team of SBU professors Ete Chan, from the Department of Biomedical Engineering, and Nobuho Nagasawa, from the Department of Art, in partnership with Stony Brook University Libraries.
The exhibit will be on view at the Melville Library through March 9 and features three biosignal-driven works that illustrate the influence our bodies have on technology, portrayed artistically.
At the February 23 event, which will be held from 1 pm to 2:20 pm during Campus Life Time, Computer Science Professor I.V. Ramakrishnan and Art History Professor Karen Lloyd will make short presentations on their current STEAM research. The event will conclude with final remarks by College of Arts and Sciences Dean Nicole Sampson and College of Engineering and Applied Sciences Dean Jon Longtin.
The event will be limited to 40 in-person attendees. Please RSVP at https://library.stonybrook.edu/library-events/special-event-for-exhibition-stem-arts-steam/
The event will also be live-streamed on YouTube.
