They are joined by neuroscientist Dr. Edward Vessel, as he elucidates the science behind the brain and aesthetic experience and Dr. Cindie Kehlet, who brings her own perspective to the discussion as both a chemist and an artist.
“C Bangs & Greg Matloff Book Launch and Presentation –
Biosphere Extension: Solar System Resources for the Earth “
Thursday, October 20, 6:30pm
Longtime collaborators C. Bangs and Greg Matloff present their first artist book, with an introduction by yours truly. “Biosphere Extension: Solar System Resources for the Earth” began with combining the resources of three books and five years consulting for NASA and working as NASA Faculty Fellows with dialogs that have been ongoing since they first met in 1982. The four sections of the book integrate the text of astronomer Matloff with the images composed by artist Bangs, whose feminist ecological art parallels the duo’s work on space and space resources.
