An Art Science Collaboration with Lelavision and BioChemist David Lynn
"The Accumulation of Change" is both a definition of evolution and a new art science performance collaboration between Seattleís Lelavision Physical Music and Biomolecular Chemistry Professor, Dr David Lynn of Emory University. This performance experiment, sponsored by Emory College Program in Science and Society, combines Lelavisionís hybrid genre of art (kinetic musical sculpture, music and dance) with excerpts of Dr Lynnís research on the chemical origins of life, supramolecular self assembly, chemical storage and molecular translation of information....evolution.
The center piece for the show is Lelavision co-founder Ela Lamblinís newest creation called the "Warm Pond". It is an 8í tall spinning stainless steel helix with a 5í diameter musical pool at itís base. The performance will include whole audience participation in an "emergent form" game, and will also tap into instantaneous audience feedback through the use of classroom clicker technology.
Local musicians and dancers, Klimchak, Allen Welty-Green, Neil Fried, Lori Teague and Dana Lupton will participate in a twisted game, which could only be described as "science based reality show spawns with speed dating". The game will demonstrate an interdependent ecosystem in which "couplings" arise and die out based on spontaneous selection by the audience.
In addition to contributing his poetry and emcee skills, Dr Arri Eisen, head of the Program in Science and Society will lead a round table discussion with the collaborators and the audience as part of the evening presentation.
The event will be accessible to all ages, informative, humorous and not without a bit of chaos. All are encouraged to come dressed down in genes.
$15 adult, $10 student, senior, artist (no one turned away due to lack of funds.)
