Freeman’s Art about Nature, Science and Technology

Freeman_Lepidopteral_singleThe science and technology is the topic of Julie Freeman’s art. The work that spans visual, audio and digital art forms and explores how science and technology changes our relationship to nature. Often working collaboratively, she experiments in transforming complex processes and data sets into sound compositions, objects and animations. For the past 15 years she has focused on questioning the use of electronic technologies to ‘translate nature’ – whether it is through the sound of torrential rain dripping on a giant rhubarb leaf; a pair of mobile concrete speakers who lurk in galleries spewing sonic samples, by providing an interactive platform from which to view the flap, twitch and prick of dogs’ ears; or using scientific techniques to misguide an audience to manipulate their senses.

Boroson’s Installation Art at MASS MoCa

“Canopy”, 2010

Boroson, “Canopy”, 2010 Installation Art

Lee Boroson’s installation art work begins with ideas of nature, which he mediates between the landscape as culture as opposed to notions of the outdoors as “wild” or “untamed.” To achieve this goal, Boroson creates large-scale immersive installation art works using inflatables, fabric, and light to create phenomenological experiences for his viewers, based on the elemental forces in nature, from air, fog, and smoke, to fire and the cosmos. Boroson’s installations are embodied and ephemeral within the space of the museum. Read more here.

Although it was exhibited at New York City’s Governor’s Island last year it is a stark reminder of plastic waste in water bottles alone.

in St. Petersberg Paradox

In the St. Petersburg gamble, the house offers to flip a coin until it comes up heads. The payoff doubles each time tails appears, with this compounding stopping and payment being given at the first heads. By conventional definitions, the St. Petersburg gamble has an infinite expected value; nonetheless, most people share the intuition that they should not offer more than a few Continue reading
